A band that was formed in 1993 in Bakersfield, California, and emerged with their first album "KoRn" in 1994. The album was a hit in the metal world, as no one had heard anything like it ever before. They have since realised 7 other studio albu,s : Life is Peachy, Follow the Leader, Issues, Untouchables, Take a Look in the Mirror, See You on the Other Side, and an Untitled album. Unfortunately for KoRn, several other trash bands like Slipknot and Limp Bizkit tried to copy their sound, and gave KoRn a band Nu-Metal rep.

Line Up:
Jonathan Davis - Lead Vocals - A really unique singer with the ability to reach many different vocal ranges. He can also scream/scat, as well as play the bagpipes.

Munky - Ex-rythm/Present lead guitarist - Munky is a guitarist that tries, and tries very very hard. Although not containing the best technical skill, he does his best with what talent he has and creates some really catchy riffs (aka evolution).

Fieldy - Bassist - Although at one time probably the worst bassist in the music industry, Fieldy has really matured his sound and style and pioneered the slap-bass technique. You can really hear his skill in songs like "Here to Stay" and "Got the Life".

I am not going to both mentioning Head and David as they are no longer a part of KoRn...

Now for a more personal note. I love KoRn.
No, I am not some 12 year old kid with an attitude problem, No, I do not like Slipknot. KoRn is a band, whether or not you think they are metal, is your opinion, but like it or not, they are huge, and sell out concerts all over the world. The common misconception is that KoRn is pussy metal, or whatever the fuck you want to call it. These statements are made by ignorant people who have a) never listened to them - and - b) followed the crowd with the rest of their "true-metal" friends. My question to them is, what is "True Metal"? Metallica, Slayer? I listen to all of that, and if "True-metal" is heavy stuff like that, then black sabbath and led zeppelin arent true metal...and they are the reason metal is alive today...
Case and point, dont judge a band you dont know anything about, because your bands get trashed by people too, and dont tell me it doesnt annoy you. Accept the fact that other people like other music, and dont act the badass because you like death metal or hardcore....

Yes urban dictionary, this was mainly made to silence the shitheads who have nothing better to do than dis my music.

"True" metal head : Dude KoRn sucks why do you listen to them, only little kids like that trash.

Me: obviously not...have you ever even listened to their music...?

"True" metal head : I dont have to, I just know they suck.

Me: Thats kind of ignorant...no?

Music for the simple-minded,teen-angst ridden teenagers who have no clue what metal is,let alone musicianship.They think that tuning you guitar so it sounds like distorted rubberbands makes it ''heavier''... and playing slow power chords with no solos....(holding an open note for 5 minutes is NOT a solo)Yes,these morons think they guitar solos are ''boring'',yet they only say that because they CAN'T solo.These kids don't even know basic metal for God's sake...Mention Chuck Billy or Chuck Shuldiner and they will just get a confused look on their face.

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.

a band that is hated by "true metal heads" and loved by fans. a good band, but the arguments around it whether it's "heavy metal" or "pussy nu-metal crap" are pathetic. a true metal-head listens to anything in the metal genre. besides, korn was pretty heavy in their early days so enjoy em.
ignorant thrasher: ur a fuckin pussy korn is teh suckz!!!!!11!!!!
ignorant nu fan: omggg they r so hardcoree go die!!!!1111!!!shift!!1
me: shut up and listen to it for gods sake

Absolute shit.

A talentless, worthless band that doesn't know when to quit, and does not deserve the success and popularity that they obtained.

They also decide to rape some of the best songs ever written, including "One" by Metallica and "Another Brick in the Wall, Pt. 2" by Pink Floyd.
"KoRn fucking suck."

"d00d KoRn is aw3sum!"

"No, I'm sticking with the whole 'KoRn fucking suck' thing."
