Well, Slipknot sells so many albums because they're advertised. People like Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers sell millions of copies of their records, so they must be talented, right?

I must have listened to their newest album about 5 or 10 times, and to be completely honest, Mick and Jim played some of the worse solos I have heard in a long time. I don't know why you find them so impressive when you consider Necropagist a pussy band with no talent, when in fact most of Necrophagist's solos stretch out to the minute marks and have at least 4 different techniques used efficiently in each one, and yet the new Slipknot album doesn't even have one sweep.

Slipknot is a softcore version of Mushroomhead. Also you can't hate a band because they have publicity, but that doesn't mean they're great. I like a few of their songs, not many though.

Anywho, when I got Lastf.fm a couple of months ago I only listened to metal and old school rap and now that site has gotten me into Muse, Bloc Party, Radiohead( who I have never heard ecept I heard Creep by Radiohead), and many more bands from mostly alternative rock genres. So thanks I guess for broadoning my musical taste, by the way does anyone have any recoomendations for me? Here's my profileLinky The only thing I don't like about the site is that you have to pay for it, but it's a miniscual amount. So I don't really mind.

Called it.

Haha, thats rich. I have an incredible taste in music, just because I don't like the bland "Metal" bands that are paraded around in the media doesn't mean I don't have good taste. There is something for everyone in my taste of music :). I'm a diverse little boy.

If Slipknot were shit please explain why they sell millions of records?

Cause they're fans are morons with no taste. It just so happens that the world has millions of these morons with no taste. They're mediocre musicians. But because everyone either dismisses or ignores the truely talented people of this world, folk like Joey Jordison are believed to be the best.

So quit being a douche about just about everthing

Being popular doesn't make something good. Nor does being unpopular. All that matters is what you like personally. And Slipknot fans can never accept this, they always have to defend their shitty little band.
I believe its because they know they're shit and are insecure about that fact and so they need to justify their bad taste by saying 'Ooh, they sell records. Ooh, they're talented'.
But their music sucks.

Opinions. Also, Hannah Montana. She's a millionaire at 16, and she has the musical integrity of a turnip.

Record sales comes from these factors:

1. Distribution. Meaning, are they signed to a major label? Do they get a lot of press (directly influenced by record label)? How readily available is the music?

2. Is the band easily consumed? Free jazz, noise rock, and experimental anything don't get very popular because it's hard to understand. I realize that you're thinking "WHAHHHHH IT'S NOT A MENTAL WORKOUT TO LISTEN TO WEIRD MUSIC" but really, it is. People want a pop song with an AABA format and catchy hooks. Slipknot is pop with distorted power chords and double bass pedals.

3. I was gonna have a three but i totally lost my train of thought 'cause i got involved in another conversation.

I realize that my words are probably gonna fall on deaf ears (save for people like Nev that understand. Sup Nev.).

Also i'd like to join.

Contradiction, Learn to make a decent post that actually makes sense.

I like my music, You like yours, It doesn't mean you have to be a dick about it at all and that's exactly what your doing too, Trying to make yourself look tough or cool on the internet. Well you suck at it, a lot actually.

My music is terrible to you. Your music is terrible to me (most of it) And the band is not "Shit" your opinion doesn't mean any more than mine does,

And if you don't think I don't have diversity or know talent, I listen to anything from Jazz to punk, From classical music to Metal. You can't tell me I don't have taste, The only band I like that you like are Rammstein SOAD and Strapping young lad.

Pop with distorted guitar and double bass? Ha, dude you crack me up. So pop is about people saying "Fuck Rap" eh? Okay dude.... As soon as I hear those words come out of Rick Astleys mouth...

And Slipknot is a softcore version of Mushroomhead?

No, just no dude. I like a fair amount of riffing with a good amount of screaming but.. seriously... Mushroomhead is a bad mix of Dope Gwar and Lordi...
