This is the intro track to Slipknot's self-titled CD. It contains some guitar scratches and weird sound samples. Some of the dialogue was taken from a Charles Manson documentary. The dialogue is: "The whole thing, I think, is sick."
742617000027 was the shipping code on their 1996 self-released album, Mate, Feed, Kill, Repeat. All the band members wear that number on their jumpsuits.
When Slipknot played this in concert, it opened their set and was often accompanied by a clip which is taken from a film called Gummo. The sample can be found when the two kids are smashing and breaking car windows. (thanks, Nick - Paramus, NJ, for above 3)
