Slipknot is best known for their energetic stage shows. Sometimes considered a Nu-Metal band, they dawn face masks and personas live concealing their identities. Even though they are sometimes considered a Nu-Metal band they differ greatly from KoRn or Limp Bizkit.
This band is not a stranger to controversy. For many years there has been controversy between them and Mushroomhead. Mushroomhead claimed that SK stole their image.
Sadly in 2010 the bassist at the time Paul Gray passed away from a morphine overdose.
