Flashback: Watch Slipknot’s Network Television Debut on Late Night with Conan O’Brien
So Kerrang! dug up this video, which could not be more appropriate given their recent appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live: Slipknot, making their network television debut, playing “Wait and Bleed” on Late Night with Conan O’Brien in 2000. It’s definitely a trip. For one thing, it’s hard to believe anything this heavy ever made it onto network television. For another, it’s hilarious to see the nine-member band struggle with the small amount of stage space. We forget now what a common problem that would have been for them in those days.
