Best Melodic Slipknot Songs

The best Slipknot songs where Corey Taylor's vocals are more melodic or songs that contain some melodic parts.

The Top Ten

1 Snuff Snuff

Snuff is a beautiful song, I don't just hear what Corey's saying, I feel it. This song has such deep meaning and soul that it had to be top of the list. The line "it took the death of hope to let you go" gets me every time. - JessicaRose

Quick explanation as why this is the most emotional (and best in my opinion) SlipkNot song, I've never really been into SlipkNot but I heard this song one day while "song hunting" and I instantly just got a huge cold feeling and it really struck me in the heart I listened to it for about 4 hours that night just lying in bed and looking at the ceiling, truly magnificent, beautiful song that just hit me out of nowhere.

This is Slipknot's most heartfelt song. You can't feel the sadness and melancholy without actually listening to it and paying attention to the lyrics. You need to HEAR it to FEEL it. Hopefully, they write more stuff like this on the next album, even if it's just one or two songs. Thanks, Corey!

Me and Bae's song. There is so much meaning to it. I love it so much

2 Vermilion, Pt. 2 Vermilion, Pt. 2

The way they stripped Vermillion down to a more melodic acoustic sound makes part 2 quite touching, especially the lines "She isn't real, I can't make her real". - JessicaRose

Played this song on my wedding. I love every note of it. Haunting and depressing.

3 Danger - Keep Away Danger - Keep Away

Slipknot are better known for their heavy stuff, but it's their softer stuff that makes me love them even more! They are all in my opinion way more haunting and emotional and they just creep under your skin. This is my favorite song by Slipknot after Psychosocial and Duality.

This will sound weird but, this song was once in dream I had and I've always loved it ever since. I think the simplicity of this song is interesting as most Slipknot songs have several layers and are complex. - JessicaRose

Just feels great, I remember some distant places which I have never visited, great song though, liked it the first time I heard it

4 Sulfur Sulfur

This song really gets too you listen to the lyrics or look them up and listen too it great vocals listen to it live or whatever it's just great! And the drumming from joey is just great!

This song isn't melodic all the way through but, Corey's vocals in the chorus are killer, you really feel it. - JessicaRose

5 Dead Memories Dead Memories

The meaning behind this song is what I really love about it most but, its on this list because I also love the melodic vocals mixed with Slipknot's signature heavy sound. - JessicaRose

6 Prelude 3.0 Prelude 3.0

A lot of Slipknot fans don't really like this one, I personally like the melodic vocals mixed that dark, slow, eery sound that Slipknot can pull off well. - JessicaRose

7 Scissors Scissors

Again, this isn't melodic the whole way through but, the part that always sticks out to me is the part where Corey is repeatedly singing "biding my time until the time is right". I don't what it is, it's kinda creepy but, I love it! - JessicaRose

8 Circle Circle

"All of my endings waiting to begin"

Vol. 3 is hated because of songs like these. I can't understand why. It shows the band is not only hating. They can feel depressed and sad, too.

9 Iowa Iowa

This song was an interesting way to finish off the Iowa album. The whole album is very heavy and then suddenly, it slows right down for this one, it's not slow all the way through though. It's 15 minutes of slow, heavy, going nuts, and slowing back down again. - JessicaRose

10 Child of Burning Time Child of Burning Time

The Contenders

11 Goodbye Goodbye

One of the best slipknot songs of all time, more melodic, more sadness

Saying goodbye to a dear friend... To think this isn't top 10 is extremely sad of the Slipknot community

The Gray Chapter was a big tribute album to Paul. Biggest evidence of it is Goodbye.

This is a way underrated song. Simple amazing, and I can't help but to listen to it on repeat. Incredible vocals, lyrics, and performance. Its one of those songs where you wish it wouldn't end!

Perfect way to start the.5: The Gray Chapter and tribute to Paul. Just enough rasp in the voice to keep it strong

13 Killpop Killpop

Killpop is very underrated. Not obnoxiously heavy, not too soft. A little bit of everything. You can feel any emotion listening this. Hatred, loneliness, unrequited love... Everything. So die and love this song

All of it until corey says DIE AND LOVE!

14 If Rain Is What You Want If Rain Is What You Want

One of my favorite songs from the album. The kind of song that I like to listen to before I go to sleep or when I'm coming home from school on a rainy day.

15 Psychosocial Psychosocial

The mood of this song has more of an angry, "you ruined everything," feel to it rather than the secretly (and blatantly) sadder moods of the other entries; however the melodic chorus of it is so euphoric that is deserves a place. It builds up a fire in you until you feel like you're gonna explode and then the chorus gives you that relief that just washes over you. Gives me chills.
