There is no stopping Slipknot, so don't even try. They are easily one of the most important bands of the 21st century so don't even think you can argue with me! The (sic)nesses DVD, which captures the band's June 2009 performance in front of 80,000 maniacal fans at the storied Download Festival in the UK, debuted at #1 on the Billboard DVD chart last week. The DVD impressively bowed ahead of The 25th Anniversary Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Concerts DVD featuring U2, Bruce Springsteen, Metallica, Ozzy Osbourne, Billy Joel, Black Eyed Peas and other hitmakers. Congrats to the band.
. "(sic)nesses was one of the single hardest pieces of art for us to complete, given the circumstances," Slipknot's M. Shawn Crahan AKA Clown, who is the visionary and architect of the project, said. "It's a testament to our evolution and proof of accomplishing exactly what we set out to do over 10 years ago. We will never be the same. You will never be the same. Here's to the future and our continuing evolution."
(sic)nesses' release was preceded by in-theater screenings across the country. An intimate fan screening in New York City, attended by Clown himself, saw fans moshing in the aisles during the presentation! Man, Slipknot surely inspires fan dedication.
