KoRn Discrimination

Sun, Oct 30, 2011 at 3:27 PM

How do you feel when people criticize your taste in Listening to Korn? It seems Korn (band) gets bashed frequently for some of these reasons:

- Metal fans dislike them cause they're not Metal enough
- Hip-Hop fans dislike them cause they're not Hip-hop enough
- The term Mallcore freqently used..
- or they use the excuse that they are for teenagers to listen to..!?

its fucking annoying. Korn is here to stay, I don't see myself not stopping anytime soon from listening to them (im 23)

What are your feelings on Korn bashing?? and where do you think all the hate came from..?
It feels like something...no, it's nothing

    Had an arguement yesterday over this. Metal concerts= can't hear anything the singer sings, just a bunch of load, crap. Had to walk out. Hip-hop concert=Everyone on stage raps. Can hardly tell who the realy guy is. Too many people out there just yelling.

    Now a Korn experience (not a concert, an experience cuz its mind blowing) is best of both worlds and an experience without the crap of both Metal and Hip-Hop.

    After watching and showing others JD's interview about the Path of Totality album, it changes minds on why and how Korn went about separating themselves from the rest of the pack. Again others need to recognize artists at work.

    I could careless who criticizes what bands I like. I'm not bothered by other people and their (mostly ignorant and judgmental) opinions.

    I don't think anyone else should either. The people who come on these Korn forums (where fans should be) to talk shit about a band they don't even like are much more annoying and pretty amusing I might say.

    Fuck people who judge you by what music you listen to. Thats just shallow and retarded. In the end, every band is going to have haters anyways, and haters are just pure stupid.

    Take for example, Limp Bizkit. Their hated like fuck. Why? because metal fans don't like the rapping element and rap fans don't like the heavy element. Fuck the haters.

    People love to trash what they don't get or understand, unfortunately it is a part of human nature, when really we should embrace our differences cause if everyone liked all the same stuff and did the same things the world would be a pretty boring place. I'm almost 36 and love Korn (always will even when I'm 80), their level of creativity and talent is truely both amazing and genius!

    Its louder and more difficult to understand. If you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't understand what it does for those who do.

    I hate to break it but a lot of what got associated with nu-metal gave korn a bad rep when they didn't even deserve it or really associate come from the same place or act like the majority of bands that fit that genre.

    You are always gonna have people who can't stand anything after peachy labeling them sellouts who are no longer genuine,

    Back in the mid 90's korn was never labeled mallcore etc... What can you do a lot of 12 year emo kids (which is dying breed now) will download away, shop at hot topicand relate to korn . You can't really change it and it's been going on for a while.

    And it's true to extent korn were never a metal band. Infact most of the members previous bands were metal bands and when they were on MTV a decade ago like every other day it would piss off a lot people who play or are a fan of metal genres of music only because it was wrongly labeled metal music and korn will agree to this.

    So comments should be taken with a grain of salt and not personal.

    It really pisses me off when people talk badly about KoRn. They are so much more than just a band to me.. Their music speaks to me.. It has helped me get through so much shit. I couldn't even thank them enough for all that they have done for me!

    I don't think the haters antagonise Korn because of any sense of directed animosity. I imagine they do it because they enjoy it. Personally, I enjoy engaging them on the subject. They can be funny, and they add variety. Besides, If there weren't any haters out there, who would we antagonise?

    But enough about the haters, let's talk about us. A lot of Korn fans seem very quick to take any anti-Korn sentiment as personal attacks. I've seen a few Korn fans vs. haters threads over the years, and they've all looked more like crankfests than anything productive. Also, while the community here is relaxed enough, elsewhere I've had a few discussions with other Korn fans over the years where people almost go out of their way to be hostile and competitive, even though there were no actual haters present. It feels like it's very easy to set some people off, and sometimes it's seemed impossible to avoid stepping on their landmines, in a manner of speaking.

    I hardly think the haters really know Korn or us well enough to hit the target. Giving the issue any more attention than it deserves tends to get in the way of the things we enjoy in life or wish we were doing. Enjoy the music.

    Korn is Korn and too much people are just too obsessed with categorizing bands and their music.
    People hate Korn because they can't necessarily categorize Korn and they fill helpless about it.

    For You, for me and for other "KoRn kids" KoRn is lifestyle. It's almost 20 years of following for most and 17 for me. Only family and own habits are closer. For others KoRn means just a band. I think it's normal.
    But what is really fckn' bllsht is to impose their views n' write n' tell everywhere some bad things. Even worse if you're a music critic and actually you just think you are. Don't like - So What! Don't tell anybody bout it!
