Until San Bernadino fire officials raised a stink, the “official aroma” at Knotfest—a three-day music fest headlined by Slipknot—was set to be the smell of burning camel dung, brought to you courtesy of countless 55-gallon drums filled to the brim with oil and dromedary dookie. All this despite the fact, as percussionist Shawn “Clown” Crahan told Rolling Stone: “You can’t huff it.” Clearly the perfect soundtrack for being gone off that hump dump is Slipknot’s latest (key lyric: “I know why Judas wept, motherfucker!”), and if it’s possible to mean that as a compliment, we do.

Price: $42.50-$62.50
