True, but it's not their whole act.
Ok, got the point. (after listen to several track of them)
That's not rock, that's crap. Rock is bands like the Rolling Stones and Red Hot Chili Peppers and Metallica (though less so in recent years). Sure they do a lot of crazy things, but they have style and talent. Slipknot has none of that.
This is the another type of rock, first started by Nirvana. Slipknot screamed inside their song, sure they have purposes, and with other same genre of bands. First, they have people who like to listen to that (dark, disturbances, sex, violence, scares, hate, paralized...)Second, some movie or scenes need these music. Some movies will become great with these song(like Resident Evil, Spiderman, and so on) plays in the part of the movie, with increase mood and imagination. So Slipknot and others are talented in this kind of stuff. We can't compare them to the band you mentioned. What i know with Metallica is they started the heavy part of todays rock. They rulez in old days. Any one listened their new album?
As for don't give a shit and crazy stuff, this is inside their music and lyrics only. i dont know wheter they act like that in their normal life, if so, they'll get caught and will be punished like normal people.
