"I'm still waiting to write the ultimate song," explains Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor, a bold statement for a musician who fronts two successful bands, appeals to a wide range of music fans, and, in the age of technical shortcuts, insists on doing all his writing with just a pen, paper and pack of occasional cigarettes.

But maybe that's why Meat Loaf recently called Grammy Award-winning Slipknot a "metal Beethoven," and the band's support system consists of millions of devoted fans that form one, big, head-banging family.
