22 Slipknot Slipknot Slipknot is an American Heavy Metal band formed in 1995 from Iowa. The band is best known as one of the pioneers of the New Wave of American Heavy Metal during the late 1990s - 2000s and are distinguishable by the band's clothing choices, consisting of black/red jumpsuits and horror inspired masks. more.

I am strongly arguing against putting them in the top ten. First of all, some people don't realize that Slipknot wears masks to better their stage presence, like GWAR. They also have a lot of members... like GWAR. GWAR is fairly respected among the metalhead community, so why not Slipknot? I mean, GWAR is meant to be a comedy band, but they are still well-respected due to their fantastic live shows. Slipknot does have one thing that is completely undeniable... FANTASTIC LIVE SHOWS. Everyone complains about the theatrics of this band, but WHY? If anything, they make the band BETTER in that regard. I'm not saying this band's a ripoff of GWAR, but even if they are, Oreos came after Hydrox... and everyone likes Oreos. My point from that is that sometimes ripoffs are better than the original, and like Oreos, Slipknot proves this in many ways. - ThatoneMetalhead

Slipknot has a few good songs. However the masks, and the fact that they have 9 MEMBERS is ridiculous. They are by no means a good band and if it takes 9 people to make that music when bands like Dream Theater can make 10x more and better music with 5 people, then Slipknot members obviously aren't musicians. - ryanrimmel

Cursed band, this morons are number 1.

Comments that insult people's intelligence, and use improper grammar make me want to cry. First of all, there is no real reason for this argument. You didn't list one single reason why they are the worst... yet there were three up votes when I saw it for some reason. I bet they were all you. - ThatoneMetalhead

I hate them so much

Not a nu-metal band anyway

24 P.O.D. P.O.D.

Their material might've aged horribly to put it lightly, but they really helped Christian rock break through to a much bigger audience. It's because of this we have bands like Switchfoot, Skillet, and Underoath around today.

25 Disturbed Disturbed Disturbed is an American heavy metal band from Chicago, Illinois . The band comprises vocalist David Draiman, bassist John Moyer, guitarist Dan Donegan, and drummer Mike Wengren . They are known for songs like "Down With the Sickness" and "Stricken" .

How the hell do you put one of the best metal bands of the 00s? Disturbed is one of the best bands that keep the modern metal alive.
