"Custer" is a Grammy Award-nominated single by American heavy metal band Slipknot. Released on October 10, 2014, it is the third single[1] from their fifth studio album .5: The Gray Chapter.

Composition

The song begins with percussionist Shawn Crahan describing what the tempo of the song should be.[2] The track then quickly transgresses into one that is much more deep and forceful, opening the composition. The song contains lead vocalist Corey Taylor speaking in the manner of a radio announcer, and the line "Cut, cut, cut me up and fuck, fuck, fuck me up".[3] During concerts, percussionist Chris Fehn would usually sing the chorus with Corey.
