    My dad just installed Kazaa or Lime Wire and asked if there was any music I wanted. So assuming MTV played music I turned it on they had their top hits of the week thing and KoRn with Here to Stay was on the charts along with The Vines I believe. I had my dad download both songs. I really liked Here to Stay so my parents and I went to FYE later that week and I had them get me Untouchables. For the first year or so I didn't listen to it that much because Make Believe was too heavy for me at the time and I never got past it. Year later I listened past it and OMG I became hooked. I asked my buddy if he listened to KoRn and he told me to get Follow The Leader, Self Titled and Life is Peachy. Life is Peachy was out and at this time Take A Look in the Mirror was just released so I skipped that as well. I also picked up KoRn Live because I was going to visit my friend and would bring it along to show him. About a week or so after listening to all of that I went back and bough TALITM and Life is Peachy. I have been Day 1 on them since.

    I'm not totally sure about this but I remember watching the Freak On A Leash video a long time ago when MTV actually played good music but before that I think I heard Twist before seeing that video, either way, that video got me fucking HOOKED for life.

    I remember well all this..
    back in 1993...
    I was in a house of a friend for a party with some guys and girls (quite fiestas like Head is talkin' 'bout in his book, ahaha) and a guy comes in, cut off the sound, say "listen to that, that will kick your ass off!!" and put the first demo of Korn, so the first korn song i've heard was "alive"... I really loved the song, the voice, the sound, so insane, black... I was very goth at this time (but REALS goths, new-vawe goth I'm sayin'), and all this musci was mixing all things I liked...

    this guy who put this music was in california days befor that, and I think that he pick the demo at a very firts show of the band... since that I became a huge fan of korn, I tried to stole the demo of that guy, ahaha, I've never meet him again, but I had news of him and he hates korn now... really strange, neh?

    Hmm Mine is a long story, recent but still long.

    I was an intern in the school I attended, sharing with who would make me the KoRn fan I am now. Around that time I managed to grab Skrillex's Bangarang EP, which was all the rage around school, and because I like Kyoto and Summit.

    I'm pretty much someone who will listen to anything, not hating but not liking genres/bands/etc but drifting through phases. A few bands/artists have stuck, such as The Killers, The Script, yadda yadda yadda, but little did I know KoRn was on it's way that year.

    Having heard that The Path of Totality was going to be released soon, my friend decided to bide his time and initiate me to KoRn via the phase I was going through : dubstep (or generally anything electronic)

    We went to study after dinner and, well instead of studying his mother had bought the album, and I had some headphones, so we decided to take the night off and listen to the whole album (With a Walkman, no less :D) I loved every second of it. When Get Up! started playing, me and him were wondering of my headset had gone wonky, because the beginning is quite calm. And then it dropped. The beat and whatever remnants of food we had in our belly... (I sh*t you not... Wait, no pun intended XD)

    It was a great night for something usually so boring, but the fun didn't end with Tension, oh no.

    He also had "Follow The Leader" and "Issues". Come to think of it, I don't think he still has "Follow The Leader"... Ah yes, it mysteriously "disappeared" the same night I injected it into my computers disc drive...

    Since then I have acquired all albums ad live in the hope they come to France. That said I need to look into it a bit more, I haven't had the time while listening to the entire collection time and time again :D

    well back in 90s I was a huge teenie booper and I only listened to pop music. my two best friends loved korn and limp bizkit etc. even tho I liked the music I was too stubborn to listen to it and thought if I listened to other music I would be letting down my teeny booperism. however I grew up and didn't give a shit anymore. I didn't become a huge fan until Here to Stay came out. loved the song I bought the cd and the rest is history when I was a teenager. However I love metal but still listen to pop music. my 2 fav bands are backstreet boys and korn LOL funny how things work out.

    I remember being in the locker room as a freshman in highschool and a friend started scatting Freak On A Leash and I asked her about it because it sounded vaguely familiar. Thinking about it now, I think I had probably heard the song first when I was five or six. I have a cousin who listens to Korn and he probably played Korn in his room all the time.

Get the latest from Korn!
