Kings of chaos Slipknot released their self-titled debut album in 1999, paving the way for the genre of Nu Metal. They clinched their popularity with their 2001 album Iowa, and gaining fans with their attention-grabbing image and raucous live shows. Since the beginning of their career the band's nine members have famously worn masks and jumpsuits, which highlight their dark and aggressive tone, changing them for the release of each album. When performing live, they are known for incorporating elaborate stage rigging and extreme on stage antics, often having a mixture of pyrotechnics, stage diving and what Kerrang! magazine have described as “"choreographed chaos… too multi-faceted to fully describe". Slipknot's most recent single, "The Negative One", was nominated for the 2014 Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance at the 57th Grammy Awards.
