Seperti yang dimuat dalam press release Warner Musik Indonesia kepada Liputan6.com baru-baru ini, tercatat setidaknya 32 media online musik Amerika Serikat mengulas karya terbaru Slipknot ini serentak.

Single `Killpop` sendiri adalah ekspresi rasa benci sekaligus cinta sang vokalisnya, Corey Taylor terhadap industri rekaman, khususnya para bos. Seperti kita tahu, bukan rahasia lagi kalau musisi idealis terutama di genre musik rock, seringkali berbeda arah dengan kebijakan perusahaan rekaman yang menaungi mereka.

"Lagu tersebut tentang betapa saya masih mencintai bermusik - tapi juga betapa saya membenci sisi bisnisnya.. Merupakan refleksi hubungan saya dengan musik, itulah sosok `she' (dalam lirik). Bukan hanya musik, tapi industri musik," ujarnya.

Killpop juga merupakan lagu paling easy listening dari album terbaru mereka; 5: The Gray Chapter. Memang, lagu ini dibuka dengan nyanyian santai Corey, baru kemudian ada sedikit growl ditengah yang lalu dilanjutkan dengan chorus yang tidak terlalu agresif.

Lirik:

She's sticking needles in her skin
I turn with an ugly grin
Her canvas doesn't leave a lot, to fantasy
But her peace of mind, can't stay inside the lines
It's so, confusing, the methods that she's using
She knows she shouldn't leave a mark, that I can see
Will she ever find one million of a kind?
It's cold and lonely but that's because she told me
Lost inside her dirty world
No one hurts this pretty girl but her...

Oh, she's beautiful
A little better than a man deserves
You are not insane
Please tell me she won't change

[Chorus:]
Maybe I should let her go
But only when she loves me (she loves me)
How can I just let her go?
Not until she loves me (she loves me)

She's drowning in herself again
My god what a lovely sin
I guess there's nothing left to do, but have my way
She can feel it's right, so she doesn't close her eyes
She smiles and answers, it doesn't seem to matter
Lost inside my dirty head
Something tells me I'm the one who's kept

Oh, so volatile
A little better than a man defiled
Oh I need the pain
Please tell me she won't change

[Chorus]

We were meant to be together
Now die and fucking love me
We were meant to hurt each other
Now die and fucking love me
Die and f****** love me
Die and f****** love me
Die and f****** love me
