If you're naming it after the slipknot song then it should be allowed.

It's considered bad forum etiquette to reply to very old threads.

On topic though, the phrase did not originate with the Slipknot song, it's origins are explained in this Wikipedia article. You don't really think bands make up these cool phrases on their own, do you? ;)

Anyway, as a well-known phrase, I don't see why anyone would take issue with it.

Henry asked the question because Opium was a drug referance, and due to the rules saying something about tasteful naming (or tasteful advertising), he had to ask.

And no-one may comment on my choice of music. Injury is imminent if you do.
