      He should feel honoured to have been selected for decapitation by GWAR. I wouldn’t say he deserved that honour, as others with far more impressive profiles have. He’s a right nobody on the global political scene.

      SlipKnoT originally started wearing masks back when they were playing in clubs. They had a thing where they would perform in the masks, leave the club, then come back without the masks and casually ask people what they thought of the band who just played. They figured that that was the best way to get an honest opinion of what people really thought of them if they didn’t realize that they were actually talking TO the band that they were talking about. After getting signed, they kept the masks, added jumpsuits with barcodes on them and originally went by numbers as kind of a statement against the music industry that treats musicians like products rather than human beings, basically having their identities taken away. For vocalist, Corey Taylor, it seems to take on a much deeper meaning, though. If you compare the music of SlipKnoT with the music that he does with his maskless band Stone Sour, you see almost a split-personality, like the masked #8 in SlipKnoT is his dark side (Stone Sour’s “Bother” has the line “A zombie hides my face”, which referred to Corey’s SlipKnoT mask at that time). Corey had a horrible past (abuse, molestation, homelessness, addiction, etc), but now he has a successful career, a wife and kids, so comparing the angry music of SlipKnoT with the more positive music of Stone Sour, it’s like #8 represents the part of him that still carries the demons of his past, while the Stone Sour Corey Taylor wants to learn to let them go (Stone Sour’s last albums House Of Gold And Bones, pts. 1&2 deal with coming to a crossroad in your life where you have to choose if you’re going to give in to your demons and let them consume you and make you a monster or if you’re going to confront them and rise above adversity to become a stronger, better person). Basically, I guess it’s pretty much the same idea as the Eminem/Slim Shady thing, except, with Corey, you get to see both sides of his personality as two separate entities.

      With Mushroomhead, they started off as a side project made up of members of different local bands, so the masks were so people wouldn’t recognize them, again, to get objective opinions of what people thought of THAT band, without bias from those who liked or didn’t like their other bands.

      For Alice Cooper, KISS, GWAR, Marilyn Manson, Lady Gaga, etc. who become characters on stage, I don’t know, though. Some may do it just to add some drama, to give the crowd a visual to go with the audio. Some may have other personal reasons, like maybe they’re shy or have self-image issues, so they create alter-egos who don’t have their insecurities, which makes it easier for them to put themselves out there (like how it’s easy for people to talk big on the internet, especially on here, when they’re hiding behind a screen name :p). It could also be a good defense against scathing reviews or nasty comments from haters because they’re talking about the alter-ego, not the actual person, so it can’t be taken quite as personally. It really depends on the particular artist/band.

      EDIT cnewshadow brought up a good point too. Corey obviously loves the attention because he’s everywhere, mask or not, but the other guys are much more private. I actually remember percussionist Chris Fehn saying in an interview that he liked the anonymity that the mask gave him because he got to do the Rock Star thing when he was on tour, but then after the tour, he got to take off the mask, go home and just be Chris. For some, it’s a way to separate their public life from their private life. It’s a good way for musicians to keep fame from getting to their heads because their alter egos are the celebrities, while they manage to stay the same people that they’ve always been. So the reason that each particular artist/band chooses to wear masks, or whatever, varies, but I’m sure that they all have their reasons.

    What Are Your Thoughts On Meat Is Murder By The Smiths? What do you guys at Rock & Pop think about Meat Is Murder by the Smiths? I think that Meat Is Murder is an amazing album. I love the guitar work on it; it’s so complex, interesting and diverse. I also love the basslines on Meat Is Murder, as they’re so funky and prominent in the songs. I also like how Meat Is Murder is probably the Smiths’ most rebellious album, as well as its great lurics. Overall, Meat Is Murder is a masterpiece.
