Slipknot is a heavy-metal band consisting of nine members, all of whom are male, who became popular because of its extreme music and dramatic stage performances. This group was first formed in the late 1995 in the unlikely locale of Des Moines, IA. It had 3 percussionists, 2 guitarists, 1 bassist, a DJ, a sampler and a lead singer. Aside from their real names, members of the band are also referred to by numbers 0 through 8 and each of them also wears a mask, which they said is part of their personality, like an extension of their body. To explain that, all the group members believe that wearing the masks shows more of what they are like inside and what the music does to them inside.

To be number 0 in the band is Sid Wilson who runs the turntables. He is in charge of the background noises and stuff. His mask is awesome, it is a skull with long hair. Next number 1 is Joey Jordison who is the drummer. He was born on April 26, 1975, and was the one who created the Slipknot "S" logo and thought of referring to their fans as "maggots." His mask is a white mask with goth make-up. Number 2 is Paul Gray who plays the bass guitar. He is a co-founder of Slipknot and is half black. Number 3 is Chris Fehn, who is the band's custom percussionist. He was born on February 24, 1974, and is considered to be the comedian of the group. Guitarist Jim Root is the number 4. He was born on October 2, 1971, and used to be a very shy guy until he became a part of Slipknot. His mask looks like Mike Myers' from "Halloween" but with scars vertically.
