Fans of Korn are often categorized as stupid mallcore teens who don't know metal for shit. I disagree with this. While a few fans of Korn might be, I think the majority of them like metal in all its forms, myself included. I never understood what metalheads are trying to accomplish by saying Korn sucks. If they're hoping Korn will stop because of it, all I have to say is "HAHA...no..." If they're hoping that the fans will stop listening, then that's stupid, why do you care what we listen to? It appeals to us musically, does that mean we are forbidden to listen to the gods of metal like "Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Pantera, Black Label Society, etc."? No, it shouldn't
Korn Fan: Korn rocks man.
Metalhead: Dude why do you listen to nu metal? It sucks.
Korn Fan: Because it sounds good. Why do you hate it so much?
Metalhead: It makes legends like Dimebag look bad.
Korn Fan: But it sounds good.
Metalhead: Whatever...I shouldn't care what you listen to.
