What then in love can woman do? If we grow fond they shun us. And when we fly them, they pursue: But leave us when they've won us.John Gay
- Remember, you're a wreck, an accident, forget the freak you're just nature. Keep the gun oiled and the temple clean, shit snort and blaspheme, let the heads cool and the engines run, 'cause in the end, everything you do, is just everything you've done. - Omega By Stone Sour
- This has never been a popularity contest. The people we care for and work with know who they are and how we feel about them. Slipknot has never been into name dropping. So we dedicate this album [Iowa] to the ones that matter most, our crazy fans and maggots all over the world. Stay (sic), fuckers! - Slipknot
- Fuck no! Negative. You will not and if you ever do see us, dude, shoot us in the face 'cause we don't know what the hell we're doing'. We're not in this for the fuckin' modelling. We're not in this for any of that shit, dude. The music mainly and fucking foremost. We don't give a fuck about all that crap - When asked if he'd do a commercial for Gap Inc.
- "The goat, for us, is an image that's stuck in our heads since we were kids, coming from Iowa people are like 'Beware the horned goat of satan!' and all that. It's bullshit. It's just an animal." - Corey Taylor, NME, about the use of the goat on Iowa
- I never knew my father, he bailed out before I was born. I don't even know his name, which is why I have these tatoos. This one means 'Father' (points to right side of neck) and this one means 'Death' (left side of neck). It used to bother me a lot and then I was like 'Fuck it, I'm not going to dwell on it'. We probably lived in 25 states when I was between the ages of four and eleven. When you spend a lot of time alone, you start to develop a kind of personal imagination. My mom wasn't strict at all, but the boyfriends she had would be complete fucking pricks to my sister and me, so I became stand offish to people like that - interview with metal hammer
- You might have a lot of money and be famous, but the next time you talk shit about Slipknot and it's fans .... We will kill you - Corey Taylor on Fred Durst
- For me its a very optimistic title. With hope there comes a lot of expectation, If you hold onto that expectation to hard, thats when hope gets destroyed, and if you can just let that go then you can have anything you want. So for me its a very positive message. - Corey Taylor on the title All Hope Is Gone
