Slipknot Top 10 – #10 “Spit It Out”

knot spit it out

“Spit It Out” off their debut album may not be worthy of a top 10 position on its own, therefore I am referring strictly to their live performance of this song. Each time I have attended a Slipknot show, the Knot reserve “Spit It Out” for something they call the No Bullsh*t, or what I’d like to call a glorified audience participation of                       DESTRUCTION.

If you’re not a fan of rap and metal, which I agree is an odd combination, you can skip to the 5:00 mark of the video to witness the phenomenon. Front man Corey Taylor, also known as #8, advises the audience to get down on one knee during the guitar breakdown. Just think about it! Tens of thousands of ruckus metal heads crouching down to their knees, just waiting for their chance to erupt. Corey toys with the crowd and “Not until I say Jump the F*ck Up” were they allowed to go crazy; and crazy they went…trust me, I was there.

I’ve been through and seen some crazy shows before, but to be a part of this crowd, to witness what happens during “Spit It Out”, nothing comes remotely close to being as crazy. Gives me goosebumps just thinking about it…*shivers*…ok, on to the next one.
