Back in 2005, Slipknot appeared on Conan O’Brien’s show to promote their album Vol 3. During the show, they bonded with the nut-themed comedy trio, The Slipnutz.
Conan played a clip of their performance, which involved throwing bags of peanuts on the ground, slipping on them, and proclaiming their band name. Although it was a one-bit joke, it was quite amusing.
Conan then had the idea of putting The Slipnutz on a bigger stage, opening for Slipknot on tour. The clip shows them hanging out backstage, talking about their band and their love of nuts.
When they finally take the stage, the audience is confused by their act. The trio slips on nuts, gets booed, and has peanuts thrown back at them by angry Slipknot fans who flipped the trio lol. Although some fans understood that it was a joke, many were genuinely upset at having to watch a comedy act. It was quite silly check it out!
