Eeyore

Songfacts®:

  • A hidden track on the Slipknot album, it's named after the sad donkey in the Winnie-the-Pooh children's books.
  • Slipknot's concerts are very intense and physically demanding. Answering the question, "What are the songs that burn you out the most?" drummer Chris Fehn (#3) told Songfacts: "'Get This.' Or 'Eeyore,' because it's just such thrash metal. There's just like the headbanging so fast and it's so exciting. But, you know, they all burn me out on the first couple of shows, but then once the metal neck goes away, we're good to go."

  • Mike Oxsmall from NowhereThe whole death threat rumor is a lie Corey explained it all in an interview with Loudwire
  • Luiz from BrazilThis song is actually about a guy that was usually in the mosh pits on a lot of Slipknot's shows. He was a tall dude, with a long blonde beard and hair, which made the band members call him "Thor". And in Corey Taylor's own words: "He was an a--hole." He'd purposely push people, throw elbows and just be a giant pain in the ass for everyone on the pit. During one show however, all the crowd got around him, and everyone started beating his ass (at the end of the song, the multiple "f--k!"s and him yelling "stop! F--king- stop it! Stop!" would be him screaming in pain and begging the crowd to stop beating him). After that, he got an injury on his leg and became a much more respectful person in comparison to the jackass he was before.
  • Dillon from Bloomington, Indiana The "I don't give a f--k man" and the "I dont give a s--t man" should be switched. Love this song though.
  • Zero from Nowhere, NjThat lame. "Take that, Motherf--ker!" sample at the end sounds like Fred Durst.
  • Melvin from Camden, Njyeah that band member was Corey
  • Steven from Hamden, CtThe song is based on a death threat one of the band members got after one of their early shows
