The band who pioneered the genre known as nu-metal
. Like other musical pioneeres, such as Sex Pistols
, they started out as a small garage band until their original, unique sound was discovered. Hated by poptarts
alike (Too heavy for poptarts
, too prog
), they have nonetheless become quite popular. Most nu-metal
bands are trying to emulate their sound, for example, Slipknot
, and some were even originally signed by Korn, for example, Limp Bizkit
Korn have a unique guitar sound caused by almost alarmingly loose strings. They fuse elements of grunge, punk, heavy metal, speed metal, folk music and hip-hop into their numbers. The band had 5 founding members:
Jonathan Davis - The frontman
, singer and bagpiper. An American Scot whose heritage has led to use of bagpipes in the music and wearing of a kilt.

. They have been accused of using their popularity to promote a liberal agenda among fans; to those people I merely say: THAT'S THE POINT OF THE BAND, YOU FUCKWIT
The band was composed of driving force, frontman
and rapper Zack de la Rocha
, fantastic bass player Timmy C, guitarist extraordinaire Tom Morello and the incomparable drummer Brad Wilk. Timmy, Tom and Brad have since joined with the former lead singer of Soundgarden
and become Audioslave
Rage Against the Machine have a completely unique sound. Rapped lyrics accompany guitar...

When the effects of alcohol far exceed that of the standard beer goggles. Usually the 10 to 15 minutes before you pass out when you'll shamelessly hit on anything.
Get away from me you ugly hag... I'm wearing beer goggles, not a beer blindfold.
Roofing, or, 'to roof' is to throw an object onto the roof of a building, usually to get rid of it but at the same time put it somewhere everyone can see it, people also throw other people's stuff onto a roof to get at them, you can also throw a ball onto a sloped roof and try to catch it as it comes back down.
Legend has it this was first done onto the roof of a Tech block facing a school field.
"What am I going to do with this?"
"Hey *someone* just roofed *something*"
