Rap-rock was all the rage in the late 1990s as bands like Limp Biskit, Kid Rock and Korn brought the literal rage with their aggressive style, heart-rending screams and crunchy, distortion-filled riffs. Although Korn first reached mainstream success when the 1998 album Follow the Leader hit the Billboard 200, the Bakersfield, Calif., band has been releasing music since 1993. In their heyday, Korn tours drew crowds of teens in baggy pants and spiky necklaces who moshed with abandon as they listened to the growling confessions of dread-locked singer Jonathan Davis. Today, they are one of the only nu metal bands to endure through the new millennium, releasing 13 albums including The Nothing in 2019.
Far Beyond Nu Metal
Despite the much-maligned genre label, Korn's music draws from diverse influence including but not limited to Nine Inch Nails, Primus, Pantera, Cypress Hill and Rage Against the Machine. Davis has stated that he thinks of Korn as a funk band with a musical journey inspired by Faith No More and the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Although the band returned to their nu metal days with 2016's heavy album The Serenity of Suffering, other Korn albums have dabbled in everything from electronic music to drum and bass and dubstep styles.
