If you were to pick any song to have played while accepting your high school diploma, what would it be? Okay, think back to when you were actually in high school, and that songs might be different.

Case in point: A teen recently received his high school diploma to Slipknot’s “People = S***.” Woah!

“Graduated from high school yesterday, had to make one last impression,” the kid stated on a Reddit thread. The Reddit post also features a video of him receiving the honor.

Who would have thought, right? The audience was so amused that even the camera man gave out a little laugh while filming.

Watch the video below.

In other news, Slipknot are slated to take their Knotfest Roadshow on tour later this year.
