Slipknot is the subject of the latest video from Sock Puppet Parody, which pays tribute to iconic bands and glorifies their undergarments.The latest clip from the troupe is for the band “Socknot,” as it performs “Wait In Bleach,” a takeoff on the Slipknot hit “Wait And Bleed.”


A press release stated, “When socks are used as rags, they’re liable to go insane. These socks have reached their tearing point. Now they’ve snapped and formed the ultimate garage band, Socknot! The band is made up of misfit socks that have been all but used up. Frayed by the constant abuse, they have channeled that insanity into their hit single, ‘Wait And Bleach.’ This mosh pit of insanity hits you like a washboard and doesn’t let up.”

“Wait And Bleed” appeared on Slipknot’s self-titled 1999 debut album and was released as the lead single from the CD in July 1999.

The song was nominated for a Grammy Award in 2001 for “Best Metal Performance.”

Slipknot recently unveiled the details of a massive summer headlining tour dubbed Summer’s Last Stand. The trek kicks off on July 24th in West Palm Beach, Florida, wrapping up six weeks later on September 5th in Dallas.

  • The summer jaunt follows a brief spring run that Slipknot will launch on April 25th in Fort Myers, Florida, ending on May 16th in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
