Contest suggestions

Ok so I'm going out on a limb here. What would be the ultimate contest for the band to post for the fans?
I was thinking, a fan could go on stage and sing their favorite song. Even if it was just a verse. Or play a bit on whatever instrument they chose. Don't throw tomatoes at me....it was just a suggestion :)

    Hey Tammie,

    no tomatoes shall be thrown from here! ;)

    I've always thought it would be a great idea to fit something fan-driven into the whole Korn Kovers idea by having a fan contest where like you say a fan sings a korn track cover, and the winning trasck gets featured on a korn release as a B-side or secret track. That would be awesome, and I for one, would most definitely enter.

    Oz =)

    I think it'd be badass for KoRn to actually have the winner of a contest pick a song they want KoRn to cover, and KoRn does it.

    Personally, I think the coolest contest would be for fans to write a song for Korn that would go on the next album. Fans could submit cool guitar riffs, drum beats, lyrics that, etc.. could all be used to compile one song. The people who wrote the winning parts could get an instrument of their choice. I know that as a poor songwriter, I'm very limited because all I have is an acoustic guitar and an iPad. I'm sure there are a lot of fans who could help write an awesome Korn song and could use help in getting started as an artist themselves. People who are artists could also submit art for the cover of the single.
    I can't think of a cooler contest than that. I think the whole site would catch on fire. How would you feel if a line you wrote ended up on a Korn song?
    One last thing, the contest needs to apply to fans outside the US too. I have been reading some posts and I guess these guys get shafted most the time.

    I don't think i'd enter a competition to sing... not that it isn't a great idea, but just out of respect for fellow korn fans who I'm sure wouldn't want to suffer listening to me!!

    Neat idea on the korn cover!

    Neat idea on the compiling of fan written materials. And thank you for the vote of making it available to us outside the US

    I am not sure what factors into where a thread is placed (as in whether it is on the top or bottom), but I am pretty sure that if this one wasn't so close to the bottom more people would comment on it.

    I like when they put fan pix in their Untouchables (special) CD not just saying that cause mine is in there. lol HIDEOUS pic they need to do another one so I can submit a better one. lmao I had them all sign it so it's probably my favorite Korn memorabilia.

    Oh Shawshank I don't care if it gets alot of comments lol. It just popped in my head the other night and I thought, why not? ;-) Misty.................have I seen this picture? And get it the hell in here!!!! Cool idea with the fan pics. Maybe take fans art and do the same? And not for an album cover, actually take the fans art they've made, whether it a painting, drawing or whatever.

    Lol well Tammie you seem to be the laid back type. I just want more people to see it so more ideas can spread around. You have some good ideas and more people should know so they can happen!

    okay, y'all got some great ideas. i know alot of fans out there are way talented artists,(painters, drawers, sketchers, even musically talented) I love that the fan base is so diverse, and that that same base is worldly. i see a different point of view, in that all those talents are great and all, but what of us that don't(can't) sing, or draw, or paint. my point is, even i have a talent(aint much), but i build, in that, what about an all around contest, a contest that draws more folks in by asking for drawings, paintings, or even pics of the gruntz tour bus i built for my wife, just adding to the idea

    I actually imagine myself on stage with KoRn when i sing (when i'm alone). I think it'd be cool for the band to do what you think. I thought it would be a cool idea. I dream of getting singing lessons from JD or learning to do some of Fieldy's bass riffs

    I've always thought it would be cool for Korn to do a remix album, with fan-submitted remixes.

    I think writting a song for the band and realizin' it with us could be cool !
