Slipknot is a metal band from Des Moines, Iowa, formed by vocalist Anders Colsefni, percussionist Shawn Crahan and bassist Paul Gray in September 1995. At first, they called themselves "The Pale Ones," then debuted as "Meld" on November 5, 1995, and finally settled on "Slipknot," a suggestion by Jordison. They also performed at least two shows in June 1996 under the moniker "Pygsystem."
