Watch Gen Z’s hilarious reaction to watching Slipknot music videos

They say rock is dead and that the new generation of music loves don’t feel the heavy stuff. But, what kind of reaction would Gen-Z give to hearing some Slipknot jams?

The “REACT” YouTube channel is famous for showing clips of young people reacting to songs that the rest of us know and love. A new video on the channel has people from Generation Z reacting to watching Slipknot music video.

Generation Z, also called Gen Z, consists of people born from 1997 through 2012, meaning they fall in the 10 to 25 age range. That means many of Gen Z were babies or not even alive when Slipknot got their start in 1995. Watch the clips below.

In the reaction video, the kids and young adults were played a variety of Slipknot music videos from their entire discography, including their most recent single, “The Dying Song (Time to Sing)” from Slipknot’s latest album, “THE END, SO FAR.” As expected, these kids have some very funny reactions to the Slipknot tunes, both the older and newer cuts.

“I’m OK with metal, but heavy metal is like a bit much for me!” says one viewer, little Jaxon. “Not my cup of tea but it seems so lit! I’m not gonna lie, everybody here seems to be having a good time,” adds a young girl named Jayka while watching the “Wait and Bleed” video. Jayka goes on to say, “If I was 8 years old and I saw this on TV, I would probably pee my pants,” while watching “Left Behind.” She keeps it real.

In other news, Slipknot recently closed out a North American leg on their “Knotfest Roadshow” tour. The group is slated to perform at a handful of festivals in 2023, as well play some international shows.
