Slipknot is an American masked heavy metal band from the sticks of Iowa.  Since 1999’s self-titled debut and hundreds of intense live shows, Slipknot has proven themselves as metal giants.  I will never forget the first time I saw them at Ozzfest ’99 when no one knew what exactly they were.  I didn’t entirely understand what I was witnessing—no one seemed to—but they brought an irresistible energy to the second stage that has never been matched at any Ozzfest since.  I remember blasting their free cassette sampler on the way home, loving every second of it while simultaneously trying to make sense of it all.  Here is the list of the Gears of Rock’s Top 10 Slipknot Songs of All Time:
