10 Craziest Slipknot Moments
With Slipknot’s new album We Are Not Your Kind due out next month, we decided to look back on the most insane Knot moments caught on film. From fire to fights and fainting onstage, these are the 10 Craziest Slipknot Moments.
When Slipknot were first hitting the road to play clubs, they were legitimately the most dangerous band on the planet. The proof? Slipknot used to light themselves on fire onstage. You’ll see Sid Wilson lighting Corey Taylor’s leg on fire, along with Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan lighting his own arm on fire. Try naming a more extreme stunt ever executed by a metal band.
The members of Slipknot have suffered countless injuries while performing, but the most intense is Sid Wilson cracking both his heels. Wilson broke his heels while diving into the crowd, but even after the horrific injury, the DJ walked his way back onstage and finished the show. Sid could’ve spent the rest of Slipknot’s tour at home, but instead, he kept performing with reinforced boots.
Fights onstage also aren’t alien to the nine. While playing in Australia, Craig Jones took some surprise shots at Clown, dropping the percussionist to the ground. Corey Taylor once spoke about Jones’ deceptive strength at a Q&A session, joking about the sampler’s brutal headlocks, especially at the airport.
