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 award-winning Grammy 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 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 kind of comes into view. There's the 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 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 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 arguably the poppiest song on their new album. The song is also included in the band's 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!
Oh, I'm not insane!
Please tell me she won't change!

Maybe I should let her go
But only when she loves me
How can I just let her go?
Not until 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!

Maybe I should let her go
But only when she loves me
How can I just let her go?
Not until she loves me

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!
