Slipknot Dictionary for Maggots

Slipknot Frequently Asked Questions

Main Phrases


Joey often uses the phrase 'maggot' to call his band mates. The word was then used by Slipknot's fans as a way of referring to each other. Its not a demeaning label like most people think it is. Maggots are associated with being hardcore Slipknot fans and will not take shit off anyone critisizing the band! 'Slipknot call their fans maggots because when they look out on them while they're playing they look like maggots crawling around.'


People that try to pretend to be someone or part of some media ideal in order to fit in. People that have dreads, body piercings, and tattoos for the sake of being "cool" or look "hard-ass" are considered as posers.


People that stick up for a band while they're still unpopular or new (ie. Limp Bizkit back in 97), and when their fanbase starts growing, everyone would dump them and move on to a newer band with a slightly lesser following.


Established bands that changes their music style and image in order to conform to the mainstream's tastes (ie switching from power metal to rapcore). Having videos aired on MTV, doing cover spreads and being famous is NOT selling out.


An individual that depends solely on someone else's decisions, judgments, and opinions. Slipknot fans who hate Fred Durst just because Slipknot happens to hate him are shining examples of a sheep. Non-conformists that conform to non-conformity for the sake of being "cool" and to look like they're rebelling against society may also be considered sheeps.

Organic Syndrome

An illness that makes you hate someone for no apparent reason. DJ Sid "0" Wilson has organic syndrome whenever oxygen enters his skull, that's why he wears the gas mask.

Tag (also incorrectly referred to as "NU Metal") given to post-grunge bands whose albums can be generally purchased at mall outlets, and has strong hardcore elements present on their music (ie. aggressive to clean vocals, lack of leads). Mallcore bands can also be spotted by their lyrical content which are marketed towards teenagers with subject matters ranging from suicide attempts, child abuse, to senseless angst. Good examples of mallcore groups are Korn, Linkin Park, Machine Head, and Drowning Pool.

The official category given to band's that fuses Rock with Rap. The "core" extension denotes that the music has "Hardcore" influences (angry vocals and hard guitars) but does not necessarily convey that the band is an exact Hardcore band. Hardcore's roots are punk, thus it's not an integral part of Metal.

"Pentex sucks! Pentex sucks!"
Back then, when Anders Colesfini was still the vocalist for Slipknot his lyrics always have the words Pentex, Black Hand, Wyrm, Umbra on them. Those are all characters or entities taken from the roleplaying game Werewolf: The Apocalypse by White Wolf Game Studios. Anders and Shawn are big fans of this game and used to meet up on his house to play it.  

Ross Robinson
The producer of Slipknot's self-titled major label debut albumquot a close friend of the band. Ross' album production is famous for influencing the "downtuned muddy sound" on all band's he produces.
