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 play-thing 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.


LyricsEdit

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 spawne

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

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 featured in the movie Rollerball.
