The band who pioneered the genre known as nu-metal. Like other musical pioneeres, such as Sex Pistols or Nirvana, they started out as a small garage band until their original, unique sound was discovered. Hated by poptarts and thrashers alike (Too heavy for poptarts, too prog for thrashers), 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.
Fieldy - An unfortunately poor bass player.
Munky - A quite impressive lead guitarist.
Head - The rhythm guitarist. He has now, to the dismay of fans, left the band to use his music to propagate Christianity. (If you ask me, Christianity is doing just fine, but to each his own.)
David Silveria - The drummer, and a very talented one at that. When he auditioned to Head, Munky and Fieldy, he was mocked because he was so young; his skill impressed them to the extent that he was immediately accepted.

Korn have sold out more than once, and the result has been some godawful albums. They have, in the past, realised the error in their ways and returned to their roots.
Korn fan: It's a pity Head left Korn, isn't it?
Thrasher/Poptart: No. They suck.


I am avoiding the argument about Korn's musical quality.

one of the few nu metal bands that are actually good. when they first started out , they made a unique sound that many shitty nu metal bands tried to copy, gave a big " fuck you " to the music industry , and put lots of energy and emotion into their work . but now ,they're complete sellouts. why ? because now they're the exact opposite of what they once were. now they sound like some kind of shitty pop music band and practically suck the music industry's cock. oh well ....
nu metal sucks, the only good bands are korn , slipknot , and disturbed.

KoRn is a band that pioneered the Nu-Metal genre. This of course means that it spawned a bunch of other shitty bands that are even worse than it, although that's pretty hard to imagine. KoRn's fan base consists of whining bitches who think their life is horrible, when in reality, there is nothing wrong. The KoRn fan base will also argue that the band is hated among metal heads do to it's different sound. In reality, different is a poor word to use, more like shitty. KoRn has ruined the Metal genre and spawned countless posers who are just in it for the money (Just like KoRn is).
