A band out of Bakersfield that created Nu-Metal.
John Davis - lead vocalist and bagpipe player. He can scream, sing, and he occasioanally does scat singing, too. His vocal styles vary quite a bit on each album.
Fieldy - Contrary to the post by Switch (dumbass).. a pretty awesome bass player. Capable of slapping, double slapping, double popping, and standard finger plucking.
Munky - The RHYTHYM guitarist for KoRn. Munky does NOT play lead, as some tards may think.. just watch any live video. It is pretty easy to distinguish what he is playing compared to Head on the recordings. Munky plays all of the droning chords (sometimes accompanied by Head), and most (if not all)of the parts that use a wah pedal. He also created the Ibanez K7 with Head.
Head - The lead guitarist of the band.. or at least he used to be. He left because he was so strung out on drugs that he turned to christianity. Plays all of higher-pitched guitar parts choruses (ie: Here to Stay, Trash, Hey Daddy, Got the Life, etc.), and generally uses less guitar effects than Munky during the verse part of the song.
David Silveria - Drummer for KoRn. Started playing with Fieldy, Head, and Munky when he was only 13; having to get permission from his mom. Uses Tama drums and hi-hat along with Paiste cymbals.
KoRn is respected by many rappers and rockers alike. They were also the second white group ever to play at the Apollo in Harlem; preceeded by Buddy Holly in the late 1950's.. quite an accomplishment. Every single ablum they have ever released has gone platinum at least once.
KoRn is the father band of the nu-metal movement.
