Eight, seven, six, six, six Five, four, three, two, one, zero
Yeah I'm a popstar threat and I'm not dead yet Got a super dread bet with an angel drug head Like a dead beat winner, I wanna be a sinner An idolized bang for the industry killer A hideous man that you don't understand Throw a suicide party and I'm guaranteed to fucking snap It's evil sonic, it's pornoholic Breakdowns, obscenities its all I want to be
If you're 555, then I'm 666 If you're 555, I'm 666 But if you're 555, I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? If you're 555, I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic?
Everybody's so infatuated Everybody's so completely sure of what we are Everybody defamates from miles away But face to face they haven't got a thing to say I bleed for this and I bleed for you Still you look at my face like I'm somebody new Toy, nobody wants anything I've got Which is fine because you're made of everything I'm not
If you're 555, then I'm 666 If you're 555, I'm 666 Well if you're 555, I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? If you're 555, I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? Yeah
Thirty seconds, sixteen, eight, four, lemme tell you why I haven't the slightest, I'm teaching your brightest They're listening, clamoring All the money in the world can't buy me Go ahead, lie to me Tell me again how you're tortured I want to know how you fallowed your orders so well You're full of shit You had a dream, but this ain't it
If you're 555, I'm 666 If you're 555, I'm 666 If you're 555, I'm 666 If you're 555, I'm 666
If you're 555, then I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? If you're 555, then I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? If you're 555, I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic? If you're 555, then I'm 666 What's it like to be a heretic?

Emily from Southbridge MaIs 555 like Hollywood like fake
Deathcoreboi from Njstay sic maggots, honestly this band is probably the best band on the planet although corey isn't so good live anymore tbh its a real shame I honestly hope that he takes some time off to rest his voice I think that corey really really needs it tbh
Princess Unicorn from NjThis band was a hugeeeeee gateway band for me to get into death metal, deathcore, slamcore, metalcore, hardcore among many many more heavy sub genres because they were the first band to kinda get me to want heavier and heavier stuff. that being said I do feel like people = is a heavier song and something about screaming people = is a lot of fun at live shows or at my house at 12am the people across the street even threw a rock through my window to be able to here me better and another time the cops showed up so they could have a better listen regardless slipknot is my towns favorite band wether they like it or not lmao. i cannot lie though this band really got me through some stuff too
(sic) Boi from Njthis is one of their heaviest songs too although three nil is also really good and I suggest you guys check it out it is one of their most underrated songs to be honest but I think it's one of their best definitely a highlight of volume three
Rings Of Saturn from NjI definitely think that this song is mostly about how no one really wanted Corey and also how he is in a metal band that wears insane masks instead of being some popstar I think the lyrics mean if your 555(if your normal and bland) that makes 666(unique and interesting). I have always seen this song as 555 representing really basic, bland people who have horrible taste in music and just in general, and 666 is everyone who is unique and doesn't conform. As for the Corey part there is a lyrics in this song that really shows how nobody wants him, "nobody wants anything I've got Which is fine because your made of Everything-I'm-not" this shows that no one really likes his unique style at least on a mainstream level. I'd love to hear your opinion though I'll check back and respond to peoples comments and stuff lets keep this conversation going.
Zack from Noblesville, InDamn Straight BE your own person!
Trent from Chatsworth, OnFavourite Slipknot song. Its a bout the music biz and how Slipknot is different from the mainstream
Gabe from New York, NyActually, 777 has no association with biblical meaning whatsoever. 555 is the first page on which man is mentioned by their species name and page 666 marks the page number at which Satan is first mentioned by name. The chorus separates the people of Slipknot from the rest of the people in the world.It then proceeds to call the rest of the world heretics, which means that they believe that human life, the music business in particular, is not what it used to be about.
Xavier from Santa Fe, NmThis song is about the music industry and how plastic most pop stars are
Jon from Baltimore, Mdthe line, "if your 555, then im 666" are the numbers that represent humans and satan. in the song, slipknots saying they are above humans but still below god, whose number is 777. still a f*cking awesome song. one of their best.
Kevin from Lowell, Ma8,7, 666, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1! f--k yeah!
Jerimias from Nuuk, GreenlandGreat F*cking song! One of my favourites! "I'm a popstar threat and I'm not dead yet!" F*cking awesome! Stay sic!
Taylor Swift's “Shake It Off” was inspired by how she'd learned to deal with all the false rumors that circulated about her. "The only thing we can control is our reaction to that ,” said Swift. "You can either let it get to you … [or] you just shake it off."
