Killpop is the 4th single from Slipknot's number one album .5 The Gray Chapter and the 5th song on the album. The music video was released June 8th, 2015 and was directed by Shawn (Clown) Crahan, a custom percussionist for the grammy award-winning band. When interviewed about the song, lead vocalist of Slipknot Corey Taylor stated:

"You know, what’s funny is over the last few weeks, I’ve really gotten everyone’s interpretation of what that song means to them, and it’s nowhere near what I wrote about. So it’s kind of interesting to hear people’s interpretations of what I’m singing about. And I’ll be honest with you: the song is my reflection on my relationship with music. That’s who the ‘she’ is. And not just music, but the music industry in general. So there’s a love-hate relationship there that really kind of comes into view. There's the old adage, 'Be careful what you wish for,' and, 'Be careful doing what you love, because sometimes it will turn on you.' And, you know, anytime you mix something that you love and business, you're gonna find the rusty cracks in there that piss you off. So that song, really, is about how much I still love making music, but also how much I just hate the business side, the numbers side, the people in the suits who try to run stuff, and having to deal with them and having to learn how to talk to them. And, you know, it's frustrating sometimes, but it is what it is. And luckily, we got a great song out of it, and we were able to really paint something really cool with it and just be able to put it out there for people to dig."
Taylor also once stated that Killpop is argubly the poppiest song on their new album. The song is also included in the bands setlist during their tour cycle on their 5th album.

Slipknot - Killpop -OFFICIAL VIDEO-

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


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


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 fucking love me

Die and fucking love me

Die and fucking love me
