the title of this should be "Slipknot fcks up"


anonymous 12/12/2013 7:45:01 PM

In before "all hope is gone" and "sic" jokes appear. Haven't released a new cd since 2008, no surprise.


anonymous 12/12/2013 7:51:35 PM

Sounds like fans are going to be pretty tattered and torn

I guess Everything Ends.

I will wait and bleed for a new record...

looks like he had a Vendetta with them.

anonymous 12/12/2013 8:12:40 PM

Paul Gray is stoked.

Fortunately they still have like three other percussionists.

Now they're all fcked (and overrated)

Soundcloud.com/mcgtoonz new guitar for slipknot


anonymous 12/12/2013 8:32:07 PM

sometimes you just gotta Liberate yourself from a bad scene, man.


anonymous 12/12/2013 8:35:45 PM

Oh man...that makes me sad. Slipknot was the soundtrack to my teenage angst. Their first album will always be the most brutal album I have ever heard and Iowa will always be the darkest. I got through a lot of hard times with Slipknot's music. I cried when Paul Gray died. Ive never related to a band's music the way that I did with theirs. I hope they can find a good replacement, someone who can do blast beats as good as Joey.


anonymous 12/12/2013 8:36:59 PM

fck it all Joey.


anonymous 12/12/2013 8:41:31 PM

I'm really devastated by this news. Joey inspired me to pick up the sticks. Now I'm the drummer for Islander.

anonymous 12/12/2013 9:07:56 PM

anonymous 12/12/2013 9:08:50 PM

If it was Me Inside the band i would have left too.


anonymous 12/12/2013 9:09:08 PM

Obviously it was Nelson Mandela behind that mask the whole time. Too sad.


anonymous 12/12/2013 9:09:41 PM

Joey's response to the band? " I am Hated"


anonymous 12/12/2013 9:11:04 PM

it was No Kind OF Life for him to be on the road.


anonymous 12/12/2013 9:13:39 PM

Emmure is shocked


truthstar 12/12/2013 9:37:08 PM

Drummers continuing to get fcked out of bands in 2013.


anonymous 12/12/2013 9:40:53 PM

now he's just gonna grow old in Iowa


anonymous 12/12/2013 10:02:09 PM

Slipknot is currently in the studio with ross robinson who created drama with joey which led to the split. The dude they have tracking on the record is amazing


anonymous 12/12/2013 10:11:58 PM

anonymous 12/12/2013 10:22:26 PM

Tacky overrated drumming is not stoked.

Dan defonce is stoked... he will put joey jordisons band in tour w 9 bands who wont draw flies.


anonymous 12/12/2013 11:18:40 PM

So much forehead put to waste


anonymous 12/12/2013 11:38:29 PM

Also, I'm not a homosexual


anonymous 12/12/2013 11:58:41 PM

Watch its because his new band. He will probably say how it was musical differences so thats why he has his other band now and will plan to tour full time. Sad thing is if he really did do that he is a fcking idiot, he would leave one of the biggest metal bands of the century to tour in a band that will probably only do maybe 10 tours top all of them being some kind of support spot


anonymous 12/13/2013 2:27:03 AM

It's okay, Joey has his new amazing band Scar the martyr to roll with now. I'm sure they will end up as big as slipknot...oh wait.


anonymous 12/13/2013 2:46:39 AM

Joey to start solo project after deciding that people = shit


anonymous 12/13/2013 3:41:14 AM

There can be Only One Joey Jordison


anonymous 12/13/2013 3:42:56 AM

Joey lost his right leg in a van flip, can't drum with Prosthetics.


anonymous 12/13/2013 4:15:19 AM

Upside down drum solos are not stoked


anonymous 12/13/2013 4:54:10 AM

Respond to these questions in the near future? fcking Spit It Out already.


anonymous 12/13/2013 5:02:20 AM

I'm just gonna spit it out, this is going to be a disasterpiece.


anonymous 12/13/2013 5:15:06 AM

Joey Jordison left Slipknot to create his new band with Justin Bieber and One Direction.


anonymous 12/13/2013 5:18:26 AM

I got a fresh hundy that says Corey gets some masturbate all over the drums for no reason moron to show that Joey "held them back". Joey was Slipknot.


anonymous 12/13/2013 7:05:54 AM

Hunter Young is sad.


anonymous 12/13/2013 8:24:35 AM

The whole thing, I think, is sick.


anonymous 12/13/2013 8:30:55 AM

Joey Simpson is not stoked.


anonymous 12/13/2013 8:38:48 AM

He was talented, sure, but let's be honest...there's probably a 15 year old on YouTube that could easily replace him.


anonymous 12/13/2013 8:59:04 AM

I herd from an anonymous source that John C. Reilly will be drumming for Slipknot at next years Catalina Wine Mixer.


anonymous 12/13/2013 9:04:36 AM

Give Mike Portnony and Mike Tiner masks and you got mainstream Slipknot.


anonymous 12/13/2013 9:04:41 AM

Ffffffffffffrrrrrrrrrrrrtt ttttttttt Who fcking cares? Just let the guy wear the same mask and no one would kno.


anonymous 12/13/2013 9:09:39 AM

anonymous 12/13/2013 3:17:24 PM

Give Scar the martyr a chance ifyou haven't already, Joey's drumming is spot on even tho it's clear he stole some of his ideas from Islander.


anonymous 12/13/2013 3:49:38 PM

if they're broke broke broke he cant be rich rich rich


anonymous 12/13/2013 10:35:12 PM

Yes, yes, excellent. Soon Scott Hull's drum machine will RULE THE WORLD! *evil laughing*


anonymous 12/14/2013 2:44:22 PM

Can someone give Mike Tiner a mask either way? This would help all future endeavors; namely the beat.


anonymous 12/15/2013 5:35:31 AM

i wonder who the New Abortion will be that replaces him


anonymous 12/15/2013 6:57:36 AM

anonymous 12/15/2013 9:50:03 AM

Can someone give Mike Tiner a mask either way? This would help all future endeavors; namely the beat. Mike Tiner beatd and killed a girl in 1990.


Heavyisthyhead 12/16/2013 11:10:19 AM

I'm pretty sure they will find four other shitty drummers to take his place.


anonymous 12/17/2013 6:41:25 AM

Slipknot teams up with demi lovato to produce a reissue of Iowa (Remix), which is going to be in the new Tom Cruise movie.
