* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: Softer songs a 6, softest songs a 5 and most songs a 7-8. On a bad day (in other words, good) they'll write something in the range of 9, while their live performances usually creep up to a 10. They do have at least one level 2 song in the form of "Vermilion Pt 2."

* ClusterFBomb: ''Slipknot'' and ''Iowa'' are rife with cursing; ''The Gray Chapter'' has a lot but is not quite as bad as the former two (with the exception of ''Custer''). [[AvertedTrope In contrast]], ''All Hope is Gone'' had just enough to earn a Parental Advisory label, and ''The Subliminal Verses'' was [[InvertedTrope almost curse-free]] due to Taylor getting tired of claims that he couldn't write lyrics without profanities.
* DespairEventHorizon: Sid went through one while recording Iowa after hearing of his grandfather's (to whom Sid was very close) death, as evidenced by the song ''(515)'', when Shawn let him into the booth and just told him to let it out when Sid told him, which leads to some pretty disturbing screaming and yelling, sounding almost demonic.

* TheMerch: In perhaps one of the more ill-thought moves of their career, the band launched their own clothing line in 2008, titled ''Tattered and Torn'' after the song ([[UnfortunateNames a rather unfortunate name to be sure]]). Taking many cues from the ''Affliction'' brand, T&T doesn't explicitly specialize in ''Slipknot'' merch, but [[http://www.roadrunnerrecords.com/blabbermouth.net/news.aspx?mode=Article&newsitemID=101703 many designs]].
