Thing is, they took what Venom were doing as real instead of fun as it was intended and it spawned this whole sub-culture trying to be more 'evil' than the last band.
It would have been funnier if they'd have taken everything the Geordies did and instead of titles like "Hvis Lyssett Tsar Oss" or whatever, they'd had "Haddaway Man, Preese Seyrtan Like?"
Anyway, back to Joey, I think he's a good, solid drummer. Not the best evar, but his stuff fits what Slipknot are doing, and the last 2 albums have some good powerful songs.
