Controversy with masks

The band's image has started controversy over the years. .A portion of the controversy comes from the band Mushroomhead, who, along with their fans, claimed that Slipknot stole their image.^ In the same year, the BBC said that Slipknot stole the show and proved entertaining after the band performed at Reading Festival in England.

[112] In 2009, Mushroomhead vocalist Waylon Reavis stated that the feud had ended.[113] .Another source of controversy was the band's 2005 lawsuit against Burger King, claiming that company created the advertising based band Coq Roq to capitalize on Slipknot's image.^ In early 1998, the band created another small demo, which included "Spit It Out".

[114] The band's lawyer claimed that Burger King had contacted the band's label to get Slipknot to take part in an "advertising campaign designed to motivate young people to vote".[115] Burger King responded to the suit with a countersuit, and in that suit pointed out that many other bands, such as Mr. Bungle, Mushroomhead, Mudvayne, Kiss, Insane Clown Posse and Gwar have used masks as part of their image, although after private discussions the advertising campaign was dropped.[114][115]
