Slipknot – Killpop: A Video Breakdown

Share:

Pop goes the Slipknot cause the Slipknot goes pop.

No, Slipknot didn’t release a new album when you weren’t looking. The song “Killpop” appears on their latest album .5: The Gray Chapter aka the album with the zazzy skeleton. Why are they releasing a new video for an album that was released eight months ago? Money? America? Abuse their new members? Anything to prevent another To My Surprise album from being made?

Whatever the reason may be, strap on your jumpsuit, put on your favorite bdsm mask, and prepare a keg for repeated beatings.

 

0:02: Typical Sunday morning in Des Moines.
0:09: Can’t tell if racist or just a lover of black and white cookies.
0:14: Lovely Wicked Witch of the West socks, Mr. Crahan.
0:20: Ugh, mimes. Just keep staring straight ahead and ignore them.
0:24: In L.A., that room would go for $2500 a month.
0:29: Corey Taylor’s mask was just a leftover from the Bad Grandpa set.
0:34: Dear diary: Jacknot!
0:38: I think I’ll take the elevator instead.
0:40: Yup, there’s your problem: mold. Going to have to spray.
0:46: So when do we get the creepy “1, 2 Freddy’s coming for you” music?
0:50: Sir, you are grooving way too much for this song. Please stop.
0:54: I wonder if Clown has to practice this song with the rest of the band. Does he have to rub the drum just right or is there room for improvisation?
0:58: Seven is a great name for a kid. “It’s a beautiful name for a boy or a girl.”
1:01: Still more entertaining than watching Dirty Little Rabbits.
1:06: “Yeah dude, just stay up there a while. No, we’ll totally get you before you leave.”
1:11: Nice try, Slipknot. Metal yoga already exists.
1:18: Well that was unnecessary. They’ll never get the deposit back now.
1:23: He has the keg and a bat. This is my Graceland.
1:27: Abstinence-only sex education just doesn’t work!
1:33: Weeeeeeeeeeeee!
1:41: “Hey, are you shooting this? No? Okay, good.”
1:47: That’s what happens when you eat too much funnel cake and go on the Gravitron.
1:50: That is some awesome frenetic dancing. You can be in an In This Moment video with those moves.
1:57: Oh, now they have a drum set?
1:59: A drum set complete with a conniption fit.
2:04: No one puts weird face-painted girls in the corner!
2:09: I hope she has all of her shots.
2:17: Bad touch!
2:24: New goat taste, same Slipknot sound.
2:35: “Okay, ladies just spin around a lot. Nope, nothing else. Just spin.”
2:43: You’ll never make the Blue Jays with that swing. Maybe the Phillies.
2:49: Okay, maybe the Red Sox now.
2:58: Uh, Corey? You’ve got a little something on your face…ah, nevermind.
3:01: Rockstars. Just throwing around their instruments like they’ve got liquor store deposits to burn.
3:05: Slipknot: Taking Jazzercise to strange new places.
3:11: Holy shit, she’s a Spiderman!
3:16: Oh, there are rungs. That makes sense. Making them into Spidermans would be ridiculous. Still…
3:22: It’s like that drum is his binky or something.
3:31: I’m not sure what’s happening, but I’ll guess that it was really the CIA setting her up the entire time.
3:36: Hey, Clown. You can’t just throw that drum around like it’s a keg.
3:45: I wonder if Slipknot ever talks with their old Ozzfest buddies Pushmonkey and Flashpoint.
3:48: The goat would keep in contact. Just check in and see how they were doing. Wish ’em a happy birthday on Facebook. That sort of thing.
3:55: “Mmmm I love you wall. You’re the only one that gets me.”

Was it worth the eight month gap between release of the album and release of the video? Did you see the baseball bat and keg? I think you have your answer.

Slipknot’s album .5: The Gray Chapter is available now via Roadrunner Records.

    For those who have not heard. David Vincent is out of Morbid Angel and Steve Tucker is back in the band. Apparently Tim Yeung is out too. The glam is gone.

  • “You know, what’s funny [is] over the last few weeks, I’ve really
    gotten everyone’s interpretation of what that song means to them, and
    it’s nowhere near what I wrote about,” he said. “So it’s kind of
    interesting to hear people’s interpretations of what I’m singing about.
    And I’ll be honest with you: the song is my reflection on my
    relationship with music. That’s who the ‘she’ is. And not just music,
    but the music industry in general. So there’s a love-hate relationship
    there that really kind of comes into view.”

    He continued: “There’s the old adage, ‘Be careful what you wish for,’
    and, ‘Be careful doing what you love, because sometimes it will turn on
    you.’ And, you know, anytime you mix something that you love and
    business, you’re gonna find the rusty cracks in there that piss you off.
    So that song, really, is about how much I still love making music, but
    also how much I just hate the business side, the numbers side, the
    people in the suits who try to run stuff, and having to deal with them
    and having to learn how to talk to them. And, you know, it’s frustrating
    sometimes, but it is what it is. And luckily, we got a great song out
    of it, and we were able to really paint something really cool with it
    and just be able to put it out there for people to dig.”

  • I’ve never liked nor disliked Slipknot. I do like this song and that’s enough to compel me to finally listen to a Slipknot album in its entirety.

    • Howard Dean

      JAG IS A MAGGOT, HAS A BARCODE, RIDES HOVEROUND.

      • I’m also a Rockstar Energy-drinking bro who likes red state buttrock and owns a gunrack-equipped pickup truck in which I shine and shoot deer without even opening the door.

        • The W.

          I might be wrong, but I think the proper term is “spotlights”.

          • IDK. Hicks around here call it “shining deer.”

            http://hubpages.com/hub/Deer-Shining-in-Wisconsin

          • The W.

            Interesting. Hicks round here call it “spotlighting”. Confession: I’ve been spotlighting before. Turns out shooting other creatures isn’t really my thing.

          • Howard Dean

            And hicks around me call it “spottin'”.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            I think Lewis Black summed this one up best.

          • I deer hunted the first year I was eligible (when I was twelve.) I hated it. Almost thirty years and I still haven’t gone again.

          • KJM

            I just couldn’t see myself doing that unless I had to in order to survive, certainly not for sport.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            I hunt tapirs with my Homey The Clown sock for food.

          • KJM

            Mmm, deep fried tapir. Them’s good eatin’!!

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            Eatin a Tapir, that’s a stabbin’!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Deep fried tapir is so delicious though! Especially with mashed potatoes and lingonberry jam! Whenever I eat deep fried tapir I listen to Seal because he’s awesome.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            I bet that lingonberries don’t even grow where you live m8. Nice try tho. Also, wtf? Who the fuck listens to Seal?

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I import the jam. Also, I listen to Seal because he’s catchy and it goes good with fried tapir. If you want me to stop eating fried tapir you’ll have to stop eating reindeer, specifically Rudolph.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            *eats some reindeer*
            What did you say? Remember, you’re just helping my purification.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I will breed tapirs instead of eating them. Those tapirs will be the opposite of you!

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            Those won’t be tapirs. They will be dadrockpirs or jjdpirs.

          • KJM

            I live in a upper middle class yuppie neighborhood. I’m sure I could find top rate Lingonberry jam if I tried.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            Buying lingonberry jam and not making it yourself from the lingonberries you’ve collected from a forest, now that’s a paddlin’!

          • ME GORAK™

            GORAK FORAGE!!!! BUT GORAK STILL WANT LEATHER LADY TO PADDLE!!!!!!!!

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            There ain’t gonna be a lady. Only a fat North Korean dictator in tight latex.

          • ME GORAK™

            “BEST KOREAN”!!!!!!

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            Plot twist: actually is Worst Korea

          • ME GORAK™

            ?????????????? GORAK NOT KNOW “PLOT TWISTS”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

          • ME GORAK™

            GORAK EAT HORSE-RHINO THING!!!!!! GORAK VOMIT!!!!! TASTE LIKE DINO SHIT!!!!!!!!

    • To be a song named Killpop, it’s very poppy 😛

      I always ignored Slipknot because that was edgy mosher kids always wanted to hear around here and it bored me. But, I think this song is well constructed. But I will not listen to this record.

      +1 to JAG’S honesty again.

      • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

        Killpop sounds like the name of an And One album.

        • Aggressor was an amazing album. They should always stick to German lyrics IMO.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Yep! Heard the Magnetic/Propeller/Achtung set yet?

          • I haven’t. Haven’t been keeping up with that type of music much lately. IDK why not.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Pretty much all of it’s on Youtube, 6 CDs worth. All of it’s kickass, but lol, as usual they don’t stray far from their formula.

          • Sometimes quality in consistency trumps mediocrity in innovation.

        • Kevin Nash & Friends

          Who’s And One?

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            They’re a band, you silly biscuit.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Never heard of them. Are they good?

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            Dunno, haven’t listened to them. If KJU likes them, they’re probably bad.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties
          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            You paddlin’ me will only make me orgasm.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            I already planned ahead! Missing this?!?

            That fucking evil bastard(literally).

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Shit, from what I’ve seen so far, they’re all evil bastards.

          • KJM

            That Jon Snow fella is decent enough.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            You’re only saying that because you have a homoerotic affection to him.

          • KJM

            If I swung that way, probably, but no.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            I don’t get it.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            It’s from one of many castration scenes in Game Of Thrones.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            What’s Game of Thrones?

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            It’s fun, so it’s not allowed in Finland.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            But it is allowed. I think I saw a commercial of it. I just never watched it. It seems like it’s a huge copy of Cory in the House. I mean, why can’t people come up with their own ideas? Why do you have to rip off good stuff and make it worse?

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            What’s Cory In The House? Is that a Disney Channel show?

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            You haven’t heard of it? It’s like the best anime of all time! You have to watch it!

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            I’ll check it out sometime. Already got a long ass list to catch up on.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            It’s actually not animated. It’s an old Disney Channel show I used to watch.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Figures that Tapir would like that, then!

          • KJM

            Cory In The House is just a bad ripoff of Good Times.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            YOU TAKE THAT BACK. YOU FUCKING TAKE THAT BACK. I’M GONNA FUCKING SHOVE A BROOM IN YOUR ASS SIDEWAYS

          • KJM

            Dy-no-mite!!!

          • Lacertilian

            Thought you were a eunich?

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Why is she spanking him? What does that have to do with the movie?

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Because it’s paddlin’ time for Tapir!

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Don’t listen to Tapir. He only likes Swedish boy bands.

          • ME GORAK™

            GORAK LIKE DARK FUNERAL!!!!!

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Me too!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            He probably does.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            I’m gonna shove a pair of reindeer antlers up your ass!

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            No you wont.

          • Sir Tapir the Based™

            VOE VITTU

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Zou Bisou Bisou to you too!

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties
          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            Giving them a listen because I love that 80’s pop sound. I’m liking what I hear. Also, I’m so damn excited for the new Duran Duran album Paper Gods.

          • Sargeant Honkey Poopypanties

            Haven’t listened to them in forever, but I like some of DD’s stuff.

          • Kevin Nash & Friends

            I love them so much. Their new album has them reunited with their former producer Nile Rodgers of Chic. I’m so excited to hear the results.

      • I don’t even know WTF “poppy” means anymore.

        • KJM

          Really, “pop” is just shorthand for popular music. It can mean any music that a lot of people like including Metal.

    • KJM

      I’ve seen them 3 times at various Ozzfests. I was neither impressed nor annoyed.

      • Kevin Nash & Friends

        Were you ever lucky enough to see Tony Martin era Sabbath?

        • KJM

          Nah, nor would I given the opportunity. I know people who saw the 1986 tour because Anthrax opened.

          • Óðinn

            I remember going to Judas Priest, Megadeth, and Testament in 1990 with some friends. We actually didn’t care about Judas Priest and left after the first couple of songs. I probably would have stayed for Sabbath though.

          • KJM

            Good thing I wasn’t with you. I would’ve forced y’all at gunpoint(not really) to stay unless you found me an alternative ride home. ^_^ I love JP.

          • Óðinn

            I’m sure some of my other friends would have wanted to stay too, but not the group I was with that night. We were all about the Thrash Metal. I was never heavily into Priest, so I decided to go too.

          • ME GORAK™

          • ME GORAK™

            GORAK HAD LEAVE BEFORE JP FOR METAL MASTERS!!!!! GORAK MAAAAAAAD!!!! BUT SABBATH, MOTORHEAD & TESTAMENT ALL ROCK THOUGH!!!!!!!!

          • Óðinn

            Good point GORAK.

          • Óðinn

            This is my favorite Motörhead song GORAK.

      • I’ll bet my daughter would like to go. I’d rather go to a Slipknot show with my daughter than something I really love by myself.

      • FUKKBEARD

        I saw them at Ozzfest. They were terrible. It sounded terrible, and they looked funny. Like roaches running around the stage.

        • KJM

          Compared to the other shit at Ozzfest 2001 besides Sabbath(i.e. Linkin Park, Papa Roach, Marilyn Manson), they weren’t so bad.
