* TrashTheSet: "Duality" has the band playing the song to a few dozen fans who seriously vandalize the house they're all in. The house belonged to a fan and needed drastic remodeling anyway, so they were allowed to be as aggressive with it as possible, but it turned out that they were ''too'' aggressive and did more damage than was expected, forcing the label to pay compensation.

They ended up doing even ''more'' damage than was expected, forcing the label to pay compensation.

* RapRock: Despite Cory Taylor's perchance for talk-singing, only "Spit It Out" has him outright rapping.

* ButtMonkey: Alessandro and Jay, the two replacements for Paul and Joey respectively. Not even the band holds them in high regard, and aren't afraid to publicly lambaste them.

to:

* ButtMonkey: Alessandro and Jay, the two replacements for Paul and Joey respectively. Not even the band holds them in high regard, and aren't afraid to publicly lambaste them. Taylor and Crahan, however, have both said this is a method of testing them, to see if they can deal with the pressure of possibly being the permanent replacements for two longtime members.



* IAmTheBand: Shawn, given that he's the only original member.

to:

* IAmTheBand: Shawn, given that he's the only original member. Various other members have all said in interviews that Slipknot is first and foremost his band.



* PaperThinDisguise: Weinberg. Root has gone on record as having vowed to never reveal the drummer's identity, as none of them are sure if he'll stick around or not; that being said, his height, hair color and length, and disclosed background elements line up with Weinberg, and the setup that was seen at Knotfest (SJC Custom snare, toms, and kicks and Zildjian cymbals, both of which have been used extensively by Weinberg over the course of his career; additionally, SJC is a fairly small-time manufacturer, so there's less of a chance for false positives) is probably the strongest indicator that the rumors are true. Sometimes called the worst-kept secret in music of 2014; within a few months of his joining, a disgruntled former drum tech leaked an itinerary list onto Instagram that finally confirmed both him and Alessandro Venturella.
** Alessandro is probably even worse. Tip for you guys: want to keep your new bassist's identity a secret? [[EpicFail Make sure his hand tattoos aren't visible]].

* TheQuietOne: Jones both uses and subverts this. While he can be chatty and usually talks to fans after concerts, he typically doesn't show up for group interviews or, if he does, usually only answers the question of what he would be doing if he weren't in a band: he would be out driving a forklift somewhere, or out killing people. It's been insinuated by the other band members that he is simply a very private person who is uncomfortable with fame and has cultivated a standoffish persona in an effort to get people to leave him alone.

Thomson, while not ''quite'' as reclusive as Jones, is also known for keeping a low profile, though touring death metal acts hitting the Des Moines area can generally expect to see him pop up and say hi.

* {{Garfunkel}}: Fehn originally wanted to be a drum tech; his early years were mainly spent as 'the oft-hazed new guy', even though Root was newer.
