The Best Bands Like Slipknot

List RulesVote up the bands that people who like Slipknot need to check out ASAP.

Looking for more metal bands like Slipknot? You've come to the right place. Thanks to classic hit songs like "Psychosocial," Slipknot is one of the best-known metal groups from the late '90s and 2000s, but there are many other great bands who share a similar sound and are just (or almost) as good. 

Disturbed, KoRn, and Mudvayne are among the top bands that are regularly considered to be related artists to the metal collective, but they are perhaps most often compared with Mushroomhead, another group from their heyday that not only sounds remarkably similar, but also wears masks like Slipknot.

Undeniably, Slipknot has had a massive influence on modern heavy metal (as well as the nu metal and alternative metal sub-genres), and new bands continue to be inspired by them to this day. While there are a lot of awesome groups and artists that sound like the legends behind "Duality," it's up to you to decide which are the best of the best. Vote up the bands you'd be most likely to recommend to people who are fans of Slipknot, and be sure to add any that you feel we might have missed.
