On March 14, , Chris Fehn filed a lawsuit against the band citing withheld payments. Fehn specifically accused Corey Taylor and Shawn Crahan of setting up several band-related business entities, in different states, that collect money from the band. Fehn called for full forensic accounting to be done on all of the band's companies and assets in order to collect any profits and damages he may be owed.

This is all I'll say. Long Live The Knot". Chris knows why he is no longer a part of Slipknot. We are disappointed that he chose to point fingers and manufacture claims, rather than doing what was necessary to continue to be a part of Slipknot. We would have preferred he not take the path that he has, but evolution in all things is a necessary part of this life.

Slipknot is considered a nu metal band. Slipknot describes its sound as "metal metal" and regards the link to nu metal as coincidental and a result of nu metal's emergence being concurrent with that of Slipknot. Slipknot's lyrics are generally very aggressive; they sometimes include profanity while exploring themes such as darkness , nihilism , anger, disaffection, love, misanthropy , and psychosis.

Slipknot is known for its chaotic, energetic live shows that contributed to the band's success. Clown was known to go into the crowd and tie people up with the microphone cord. Former bassist Paul Gray said this was due to receiving lawsuits and to avoid harming other people, and that it was a "better move" for the longevity of the band.

The band is known for its attention-grabbing image; the members perform wearing unique, individual facemasks and matching uniforms—typically jumpsuits —while each member is typically assigned and referred to by number based on their role in the band 0 through 8 , although the latter practice has diminished following the death of Paul Gray.

The band has said the idea of wearing masks stemmed from a clown mask that Crahan took to rehearsals when the band first started. Crahan later became known for his clown masks, adopting the pseudonym "Shawn the Clown". It's a way for us to become unconscious of who we are and what we do outside of music.

It's a way for us to kind of crawl inside it and be able to use it. According to Taylor, "Originally, we were just going to wear the jumpsuits We were basically saying, 'Hey, we're a product! During their careers, the members of Slipknot have developed their images, updating their uniforms and each member's mask upon the release of each album.

Jordison, in an interview in , said the masks are updated to show growth within each individual. The band's image has been the subject of much criticism and controversy, with critics generally accusing it of being a sales gimmick. During an interview in , percussionist Fehn said the masks were a "blessing" because they meant the members are not recognized in public.

An essential element for the band's image is the Slipknot logo. The nonagram was created by the band's members around the same time the band was founded. The nonagram is arguably the best-known sigil of Slipknot and it represents a 9-point star—a symbol of unity, loyalty, friendship and remembrance. Each star point was meant to stand for each of the nine members of the original band, with at least one member, Chris Fehn , possessing a nonagram tattoo.

Despite popular belief, the nonagram is not a Satanist symbol and instead represents Slipknot's "battle with the fake world. The pre-release of the album. A new nonagram drew the public's attention towards the band, announcing the beginning of a new era. The black and red color scheme and the minimalist, elegant design received public appreciation and it is still used today. The clothing line, 'Tattered and Torn', was launched by the band Slipknot in and runs as an imprint of Bravado, a company that runs the band's merchandising.

Vocalist Corey Taylor said, "It's a way for [the fans] to get cool clothing at affordable prices. Slipknot's music and image have been the subject of many controversies throughout its career. The lyrical content of some of Slipknot's songs has been linked to several violent and criminal incidents.

In , two young killers blamed the lyrics of "Disasterpiece" for their crime. In , Corey Taylor commented on a slashing incident at a South African school to which Slipknot was linked; he said:.

Slipknot had a longstanding feud with the band Mushroomhead which—along with their fans—said Slipknot "stole their image". Taylor said, "we both started at the same time—neither one of us knowing anything about each other". He stated that Slipknot was better and he admitted that his thoughts were personal, since he was not involved with Mushroomhead when the feud started.

Slipknot's lawsuit against Burger King said the company created the advertising-based band Coq Roq to capitalize on Slipknot's image. After negotiations, the advertising campaign and lawsuit were withdrawn. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
