The Music 

SLIPKNOT’s self-titled debut album, released on June 29, 1999, marked a pivotal moment in the history of rock music. With its innovative sound and raw energy, the album captured the hearts of fans and critics alike, propelling the band to international fame. Guitarist Jim Root reflects on the album’s impact, stating, “We loved what we did with the first record, but we didn’t even know if there was gonna be anything after that. We just wanted people to hear it.”

In the years since its release, SLIPKNOT has achieved unparalleled success, earning 64 award nominations and 27 wins, including a Grammy Award for “Before I Forget” from their album Vol. 3. The band’s influence extends beyond their music, with their creation of the Knotfest festival in 2012 and the subsequent establishment of Knotfest.com, providing a platform for emerging artists and free thinkers.

As SLIPKNOT celebrates 25 years of musical innovation, founding member Shawn “Clown” Crahan emphasizes the band’s commitment to their fans, stating, “Every time I’ve walked on stage, it’s never been about how many people have been there because my culture, the maggots, always show up.”

With their Here Comes The Pain Tour, SLIPKNOT invites fans old and new to join them in commemorating a quarter-century of groundbreaking music and unforgettable performances. As Crahan aptly puts it, “Get ready to have your face kicked in. Because we just do what we do, spread that maggot culture – that disease. And you’ve been infected.”
