Nine Old-School Songs SLIPKNOT Should Start Playing Live Again

Slipknot is currently on a tour in 2024 celebrating their debut album from 1999. They’ve recently added Eloy Casagrande, former drummer of Sepultura, to their lineup. With just a couple of performances under their belt this year, Slipknot seems to be delving back into their early material for their live shows. Here are some suggestions for old-school Slipknot songs they should consider playing live again:

1. “Some Feel” from “Mate. Feed. Kill. Repeat.” (1996)

This song has only been played once, way back in 1996. It’s a deep cut that’s quite different from modern Slipknot, but with a fresh spin, it could make for an intriguing live addition.

2. “Interloper” from the 1998 Demo (1998)

Although played only eight times and last performed in 1998, “Interloper” would fit well with Slipknot’s throwback theme. Its inclusion in some reissues also gives it a bit of recognition.

3. “No Life” from “Slipknot” (1999)

With 61 performances under its belt, the crowd chanting along to the chorus of “No kind of life, this is no kind of life” would be electrifying.

4. “Only One” from “Slipknot” (1999)

Played 71 times, “Only One” might need a slight tweak for live energy, but its powerful chorus is tailor-made for audience participation.

5. “My Plague” from “Iowa” (2001)

Despite being played 74 times and last in 2016, “My Plague” deserves more stage time with its intense vibe and previous exposure in the Resident Evil film soundtrack.

6. “I Am Hated” from “Iowa” (2001)

With just 19 performances, “I Am Hated” is a heavy hitter that could add depth to the setlist, even if it’s a bit slower.

7. “Skin Ticket” from “Iowa” (2001)

Played 14 times, “Skin Ticket” offers a sludgy, headbanging experience that fans would love to see live again.

8. “Opium Of The People” from “Vol. 3: The Subliminal Verses” (2004)

Despite being played 18 times, “Opium Of The People” deserves more spotlight with its energetic guitar lines that could ignite the crowd.

9. “All Hope Is Gone” from “All Hope Is Gone” (2008)

Played only once in 2008, this song, especially with Eloy Casagrande on drums now, has the potential to be a crowd-pleaser with its raging chorus.
