Here’s how The Only Person in Metal Who Matters™ answered:

“My favorite by far is ‘Scissors.’ To this day it’s my favorite Slipknot song. I love it because every time we would play it, the whole second half was improvised. We played at each other, free form, free prose, everything. It was violent and gorgeous. Nothing will ever replace it for me; when we stopped playing it live, I had a hard time enjoying our sets for a very long time.”

According to Setlist.fm, Slipknot last played “Scissors” back in the year 2000. You can check out some footage of the band performing the song live that year below.
