How the hell is Slipknot above Mayhem? If you think Slipknot are scary then you've lived a sheltered life. The members of this band were absolutely crazy. One of their lead singers used to dress like a corpse, cut himself onstage, and bury his clothes to get the "stench of death" on them. He latter committed suicide which their guitarist (who openly admitted he was a satanist) took a picture of his dead body for their next album. Their guitarist was then murdered by their bassist who is a white supremacist and neo nazi. This band is messed up!
