It’s been a prolific year for Slipknot, from partnering up with a whiskey distillery to recruiting a mystery member as ex-percussionist Chris Fehn’s replacement. The nü-metal crew have teased us throughout the year with blistering music videos, and the wait is finally over.
With the release of their long-anticipated sixth album, We Are Not Your Kind, and the 20th anniversary of their debut, it only makes sense to celebrate the occasion with a bit of music video trivia. Can you identify the Slipknot music video from a single screenshot? Take the quiz below to find out!
More on Slipknot:
Slipknot percussionist M. Shawn “Clown” Crahan revealed some news about songs the band recorded that will not be featured on their upcoming album.
In an interview with Kerrang!, Crahan discussed the process of cuts and revealed that “another 15 songs that didn’t make the cut” exist.
“There’s so much material, but all that material whittled this down to its anomaly, and to its presentation,” Crahan said. “Usually you take your collection of records, and you make an album. So we have a bunch of records, and we have to basically decide which ones of those records can make up a thought process known as We Are Not Your Kind.”
“We Are Not Your Kind is me kind of putting my foot down as far as the divisiveness not only just the culture right now but the world at large. Everyone is so at odds with each other. Everyone is so quick to look at each other as an enemy without trying to find common ground. For our kids, for our fans, that can really be a stressful, daunting, dangerous time. It’s very dangerous for people to be different these days. I will not have it. I grew up different.”
“I know the pain of having to deal with being treated differently and for me, it’s one of those rare cases where I actually use my position in life to make a stand and say, ‘Guess what? It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, what you look like, what color your skin is, who you love, what you believe—we are a family because of this love for music that we have.’
And We Are Not Your Kind represents that gathering of people together and then turning our backs towards the rest of the world and saying, ‘We’re not going to let your illness, your hate, permeate us. We are not your kind. You will never be ours.’”
