I Am Hated is the tenth song from Slipknot's second album, Iowa. It was mixed by Sid Wilson.

Songs MeaningEdit

"Well, I think the whole point of this song is saying that Slipknot is the cure for the human race. They are the "anti-cancer" of this planet. He is saying that all the people that hate Slipknot don't understand them, so they reject them, and think they are "two times the devil" meaning they think they are worse than the devil. He is also pissed off about all the complaining going on. Then he goes on to talk about how he doesn't care what everyone thinks he can be who he is and be happy, so fuck everyone that hates on him. We are not sorry for what we do because we started this shit in the first place." Corey's basis is that he hates the people who jump from band to band, followers, teenyboppers, and they hate him. It's a tic for tac situation. He states that he will never become like them and try to become someone they are not and that he is proud to be himself. Even if that means being fat, ugly, and not popular. He is proud even with all those things holding him back and isn't going to let it hold him down and will fight it and become more popular as time goes on. He states that boy bands and such are just 'dragged and raped for the love of a mob' which means that they will become the fans plaything as long as they keep buying their records. They only care about the money and not about the image they give out to their young fans about society and self-esteem. They let themselves get pushed around, but no, Slipknot is showing them the exact opposite. They are showing themselves to stand their ground, to prove a point, to get a message across, to reach in to grab the souls of the festering society of today's world, and show them the true reality of their world.

Slipknot - I Am Hated (Audio)02:39

Slipknot - I Am Hated (Audio)

The whole world is my enemy, and I'm a walking target
Two times the devil with all the significance
Dragged and raped for the love of a mob
I can't stay because I can't be stopped
Eat motherfuckers alive who cross us
I know you're all tired of the same ol' bosses
Let me tell you how it's gonna be
I'm gonna kill anyone who steps up in front of me
Welcome to the same ol' fucking scam
Same ol' shit in a dead fad
Everybody wants to be so hard
Are you real or a second rate sports card?
They all lost their dad or their wife just died
They never got to go outside, shut up
Nobody gives a fuck
It doesn't change the fact that you suck

We are the anti-cancer
We are the only answer
Stripped down, we want you dead
But what's inside of me, you'll never know
We are bipolar gods
We are, you know what we are
My life was always shit
And I don't think I need this anymore

Now I'm not pretty, and I'm not cool
But I'm fat, and I'm ugly and proud so fuck you
Standing out is the new pretension
Streamline the (sic)ness, half-assed aggression
You gotta see it to believe it, we all got conned
All the mediocre sacred cows we spawn
Put your trust in the mission
We will not repent, this is our religion

We are the anti-cancer
We are the only answer
Stripped down, we want you dead
But what's inside of me, you'll never know
We are bipolar gods
We are, you know what we are
My life was always shit
And I don't think I need this anymore

I am hated!
You are hated!
We are hated!
I am hated!

Everything sucks, and I can prove it
Everybody dies, shuffle on, remove it
Individuals, indispensable
I'm the paradox deity vessel
The other side holds no secret
But this side is done, I don't need it
Before you go, you should know you're breaking down
You'll be rotten by the time you're underground

We are the anti-cancer
We are the only answer
Stripped down, we want you dead
But what's inside of me, you'll never know
We are bipolar gods
We are, you know what we are
My life was always shit
And I don't think I need this anymore

We are the source of conscience
We are distorted sentients
There's only one thing left
And I can't leave until it's sated
We are the absolute
We are controlling you
They're closing in, I can't escape
I am hated!

TriviaEdit

By default on Windows Media Player, the song is called "Am Hated". This is an error and should be changed to "I Am Hated".

I Am Hated was first played live January 18th, 2016 in Helsinki as they kicked off their 2016 European tour with a new set list.

I Am Hated was featured in the movie Rollerball.
