"Left Behind" is a song by American metal band Slipknot. The song was released as the lead single from their second album Iowa. It was one of two Slipknot tracks included on Clear Channel's 2001 memorandum of songs they considered offensive in the aftermath of 9/11 (the other was "Wait and Bleed".)
The music video for "Left Behind", directed by Dave Meyers, focuses on a young boy. First, he goes to a meat market to cut meat. He then goes to his dirty, rundown home where bullies throw stones through his windows. The boy pours filthy water on his Froot Loops and watches an old television set which faintly bears the word "Slipknot" in static. The band is shown performing the song in a dry, dead forest which, toward the climactic end of the video, turns to night and is heavily rained on. As the lead single, "Left Behind" also marked the video debut of Slipknot's new costumes in promotion of Iowa.
There are two versions of the video, a slightly edited version (for airing on TV) and an unedited version for the DVD.
