SLIPKNOT Frontman Comments On Multi-Platinum Certifications

SLIPKNOT vocalist Corey Taylor has commented on the group's recent Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) certifications — double-platinum (2 million copies shipped) for the group's self-titled 1999 debut, platinum for "Vol. 3 (The Subliminal Verses)", and triple-platinum for the "Disasterpieces" DVD.

"The last six years have taken ten years off of all of our lives, but receiving these awards and feeling the response all over the world has made all of it, every sacrifice, worthwhile," Taylor said during his spirited plaque-acceptance speech backstage at the band's Continental Airlines Arena show on March 6. He concluded with a smile, "This is the ultimate middle-finger to every one of my high school teachers," as he went on his way to take the stage.

SLIPKNOT are currently on tour in the U.S. with SHADOWS FALL and LAMB OF GOD.
