Joey Jordison will be forever remembered as the iconic masked drummer of Slipknot. But he was also one of the most prolific and influential heavy-music songwriters of his generation. With the 'Knot, he wrote game-changing heretic anthems. With bands such as Murderdolls, Scar the Martyr, Vimic and Sinsaenum and projects like Roadrunner United, he showed his range, dipping into horror-punk, black metal and more. In remembrance of the late, great musician, who passed away in his sleep on July 26th, we present the career-spanning playlist below.
