This is from a flyer sent to fans of KoRn back in 1996 or 1997. That was a pretty god damn long ass time ago, and I am afraid that my memory isn't quit what it used to be. Back in those days there really was not a constant way to keep up with the boys from Bako, so it these flyers were always met with excitment when they arrived. This one had info about a Lalapalooza tour that they were going to go on, with Tool being the other headliner. Unfourtunately, Munk got really sick and KoRn had to drop out of the tour. Anyhoo, what makes this merch section of the flyer really stand out to me is that they were actually selling Bongs and Pipes. Look in the bottom right hand side of the image. Crazy, huh? I am not a really big smoker like I used to be in those days, but I always regret not getting the "water pipe" from this flyer. I have looked everywhere to find one now but it seems like an impossibility.

Next up just might be the most rare of all the KoRn shirts in my collection. This is not my original one, either. That was stolen by some punk ass years ago. After years of searching to find a replacement, I found one on ebay and won a furious battle for it. The seller was sad to see it go, but I made an arrangement that if he ever wanted it back, then all he would have to do is let me know. I do not know if this shirt is a bootleg or not, because it is not made by Giant, who was the company typically making KoRn shirts is those day, but the image at least is an actual KoRn design because they sold a patch of it for years at shows and online.

    What's funny about that shirt is that is used to be all over the place. It was the black KoRn logo shirt with the scarcrow on the back and this one for years and years, but now it is impossible to find.
