In the past eight-years, the face of popular culture has changed radically and with it, the music that will define the decade. Gone are the pop saturated songs of the 70's and 80's. Today's sound is a fusion of grunge, hip-hop, metal, hardcore and funk. Disparate sounds that together create something thoroughly modern and unlike anything we've heard before. No band embodies this musical melting pot more than Korn. With their frantic, no-holds-barred image and sound, Korn has jumped musical boundaries to be both Billboard chart toppers and a band with a loyal, obsessive following.

--Their debut album, "Korn" went platinum and has sold millions
--"Life is Peachy" debuted at number three on the Billboard charts
--Korn's latest album, "Follow the Leader" has sold over two million copies and remained on the Billboard charts for over twenty-eight weeks.

Elina Furman's in-depth look at the band's meager beginings to their breakthrough success with "Follow the Leader," their current multi-platinum album is a fan's ultimate guide.

Praise for Korn

"In attack and distemper, Korn have the . . . hip-hop, amp-death aesthetic down to perfection. Prepare to eat shrapnel--whether you like it or not."--Rolling Stone
