Rumours have been circling the internet that street wear and hype-beast brand Supreme will be collaborating with the metal band Slipknot. Yes, Slipknot.

Slipknot recently released the music video for their new song, ‘All Out Life’.
Frontman Corey Taylor spoke to esteemed radio DJ Zane Lowe on his radio show Beats 1, saying: “Everybody talks about toxic masculinity and toxic fandom these days, but for me it’s more about this toxic idea that unless something came out ten minutes ago then it’s not any good – and that bothers me.”
Commentary fan account, DropsByJay, tweeted: “Supreme x Slipknot collaboration coming this Spring/Summer 19 Season. Tees, outerwear, accessory, stickers & More. Official Images to come soon. This collaboration has been awhile in the making who’s excited?” on the 7th of January.

The collaboration has received mixed reviews, however, with some Twitter users expressing less enthusiasm.
