Nu Metal metal Slipknot heavy metal alternative metal


"Spit It Out" is the second single by American nu metal band Slipknot, released on September 4, 2000. It is the second single from the band's debut album, Slipknot. There was a dispute over the release of this song as the band and album's first single. While deciding which track to release, guitarist Mick Thomson and percussionist Shawn Crahan were reportedly very enthusiastic about releasing "Surfacing" as the next single. However, after weeks of disputing and consideration, "Spit It Out" was chosen to be released instead. The song reached number 28 in the UK Singles Chart. This was written in retaliation to childish mudslinging by a handful of individuals who worked at a local radio station in Des Moines, Iowa, where the band is from. These individuals worked hard to keep Slipknot off the air. This was broadcast in fragments on Mancow's Morning Madhouse after the station threatened to pull Mancow's show from their station. It was also right after Slipknot were pulled from a slot on a live concert in Chicago hosted by Mancow; thanks to same said individuals at the aforementioned radio station. The digi-pak of Slipknot's self-titled release includes a rough mix of this song known as the "hyper version." The video is based on the movie The Shining, directed by Stanley Kubrick, but using the members of Slipknot in the main roles. Kubrick touched on themes of madness and mental breakdowns in a lot of his films, as do many Slipknot songs. Slipknot drummer Chris Fehn (#3) talks about shooting videos: "The video that we did for 'Spit It Out,' Ice-T showed up, so it was rad, dude. We got to meet Ice-T, and he hung out on the video shoot and everything, and took pictures with us. That's the coolest thing. Otherwise, they suck, dude. It's so boring. Like, you play the song a million times, you know, and you can barely hear it through these stupid little monitors they give you. It's just such a long, drawn-out day that it's tough. So videos blow." Whenever Slipknot play "Spit It Out" live, they do what's called the "zero bullshit" at the bridge. Corey tells all the fans in the crowd to get down on their knees and jump up when he says "jump the fuck up," at which point the crowd goes crazy. The line "Jump the fuck up" replaces the line in the recording, "Good enough, had enough."

Gray died on May 24, 2010, and was replaced during 2011–2014 by guitarist Donnie Steele. Show more ...

Spit It Out - Slipknot

Since you never gave a damn in the first place,
Maybe it's time you had the tables turned
'Cause in the interest of all involved I got the problem solved
And the verdict is guilty...

... Man nearly killed me
Steppin' where you fear to tread
Stop, drop and roll
You were dead from the git-go!
Big mother fucker, stupid cocksucker
Are you scared of me now? Then you're dumber than I thought
Always is, and never was
Foundation made of piss and vinegar
Step up to me, I'll smear ya
Think I fear ya? Bullshit!
Just another dumb punk chompin' at this tit
Is there any way to break through the noise?
Was it something that I said that got you bent?
It's gotta be that way if you want it
Sanity, literal profanity hit me!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Maybe it's the way you gotta spread a lotta rumor fodder
Keepin' all your little spies and leaving when you realize
Step up, fairy
I guess it's time to bury your ass with the chrome
Straight to the dome
You heard me right, bitch, I didn't stutter
And if you know what's good, just shut up and beg, brother
Backstab - don't you know who you're dissin'?
Side swipe, we know the ass that your kissin'
Bigity-biggidy bitch boy, halfway hauser
Don't hear shit cuz I keep gettin' louder
Come on, and get a face full 'o tatic
Lipping off hard, going home in a basket
You got no pull, no power, no nothing
Now you start shit?
Well, ain't that something?
Payoffs don't protect, and you can hide if you want
But I'll find you, comin' up behind you!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

'Bout time I set this record straight
Cuz all the needlenose punchin' is making me irate
Sick o' my bitchin' fallin' on deaf ears
Where you gonna be in the next five years?
The crew and all the fools, and all the politics
Get your lips ready, gonna gag, gonna make you sick
You got dick when they passed out the good stuff
Bam! Bam! Bam!
Are you sick of me?
Good enough, had enough!

Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!
Fuck me! I'm all out of enemies!

Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out
Spit it out
All you wanna do is drag me down
All I wanna do is stamp you out

Spit!
Spit!
Spit!
Spit!
Spit... It out!
