"My Plague" is the third single off American metal band Slipknot's second studio album Iowa. The song was released on July 8, 2002.

Overview[change | change source]

There was a remix for the song called "New Abuse Mix" that was featured on the soundtrack to the 2002 movie Resident Evil. the remix cut a screamed layer of vocals and replaced it with a more monotone, drone-like sounding layer.

Versions[change | change source]

The new version was cut by approximately 00:37 seconds by removing the transitional "Kill you, fuck you, I will never be you" section. Some of the profanities were also replaced with less offensive phrases; like the phrase "...the everyday bullshit things that you have done" was changed to, "...the everyday abusive things that you have done" and "You fucking touch me, I will rip you apart..." was replaced with "...and if you touch me, I will rip you apart...". The whole second verse of the chorus was removed.

In 2003, the song was nominated for a Grammy Award in the Best Metal Performance category but it lost to Korn's "Here to Stay".[1]
