Awesome Nu-Metal band that originally formed in 1993 and released their first album titled "Korn" in 1994 since then they have released Issues, Life Is Peachy, Take A Look In The Mirror, Follow The Leader, The Untouchables and See You On The Other Side. Before Korn was formed, Frontman Jonathan Davies was in Sexart, who only ever released one song called Seven, which i recommend you listen to. Also, before Jonathan joined, Munky, Fieldy and Head were in a band called LAPD, which stands for Love And Peace Dude. Korn like to present themselves and their fans as "freaks" and as such merchandise is available with the tagline "Still a F**king Freak" and their album covers and clothing usually features images which some people may call strange or disturbing. As for me, Korn are my favourite band and if people want to make fun of them and say that they are a band for little 13 year olds to listen to and say it relates to their life, then thats their business, but i would just like to say that i am 20 years old and i love their music. They are a very talented band and leaders for other bands to follow
Most famous Korn songs include
Freak on a leash
Got The Life
Right Now
Another Brick In The Wall (very good pink floyd cover)
Falling Away From Me

The Godfathers of Nu-Metal. Inspired by 80's metal. Now copied by a bunch of poser bands. WTF. Even Metallica tried to copy their sound in St.Anger with sucked horribly but Metallica is still the greatest band. Korn is one of the few bands were are not completely controlled by the record producers.
And fuck, what the hell are u guys talking about.... Only goths listen to Korn? sTfu.
Quote They use "studio magic" to make it sound good at all. Have you been to a live show. The effects and vocals are all done themselves and sound exactly like the CD's
They were the first band to come out with that sound and were copied by crappy bands and put in a bunch of dumb catagories and had lots of good songs and albums and are now bashed by a bunch of fagots.
They have lots of respect from bands in the metal scene and u guys should f off
Lars Ulrich:I have so much respect for those guys, to them we are their peers(mtv icon metallica)

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.

Or:

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

Innovators of the heavy metal subgenre we now know as nu-metal or aggro-rock. Korn currently consist of 4 members now that rhythm guitarist Head has departed the band; Jonathan Davis, a great frontman and talented vocalist, Munky, a rather average guitarist (along with Head), Fieldy, a pretty slick bassist who greatly defines the band's sound, and Dave Silveria, an underrated and highly talented drummer. KoRn is known for their heavy sound, low-tuned guitars and dark themes and humour.

KoRn has many devoted fans around the world who love them for the music, not because of some poseur teen-angst image complex. It is because of these poseurs that many people hate KoRn, basing their opinion on the fact that many people who like the band shop at Hot Topic and suck at life, so the band must suck too. In reality, KoRn are respected by musicians as innovators, and famous because their sound simply kicks ass. KoRn acknowledges the fact that their recent albums have been sub-par due to wiggerism and promises to return to their roots in their next album. Hey, at least they admit it and learn from it, unlike some bands who use the phrase "people don't like it just because it's different" as an excuse for their crapiness.

In conclusion, you don't have to like KoRn... just don't hate on them for stupid reasons. A lot of people think "real" metal bands like Iron Maiden and Lamb of God suck too, so keep that in mind when you bash them.
KoRn may not be the most technical band out there, but they are original and talented.

A hard rock band that formed in the early-mid nineties. They started becoming successful with hits such as Freak on a Leash, Got the life, and Falling Away from me. They became a huge success in the late nineties. Personally im a huge fan. Ill probably get a bunch of thumbs down from people who dislike korn or who just feel like it. Oh well.
DUDEWHOHATESKORN: WOW this kid likes korn. Thumbs down .
