- Shawn #6
Town's average population = 450 000.
What is wrong with Des Moines? so wrong that a band such as Slipknot was formed?
Joey: "We were raised in an environment where you had to develop your own sense of individuality. I had 16000 imaginary friends, I had my own fucking army!"
Corey: "When your growing up, there is nothing for kids to do, You develop destructive behaviour, just from the fact that the only thing to do is break shit."
Shawn: "There's a lot of love in this town" - the city has good morals and educational system and the band do not hate the town. "However, there's a lot of hate and fucked up emotions too. Our detractors told us we were diseased from a very young age. Instead of dying we created our own vaccine in the form of Slipknot."
