First time you've heard of Korn, and what song was it?
I'm a long time fan, for 17-18 years now, and counting. They've always been my musical obsession, my most favorite and influential band since I was a kid, and they still are! The first time I've ever heard Korn was on the radio, back in 1996 (I was about 7 or 8 at the time), and the song "Blind" came on. I was hearing a lot of metal and rock music when I was little, getting into it more and more, and I loved a lot of what I was hearing, but never was there a band that actually blew my fucking MIND the way Korn has! From what I was hearing on the radio, which, mind you, this was back in the day when I only had radio to entertain me and I didn't have a computer nor did I have cable, just regular TV, from all of the bands I was listening to, their sound was different and unique - no band sounded like them (Head's band, Love and Death, doesn't really count lol), even to this day, and I loved it! As soon as I heard them, I was in LOVE! I knew I needed to buy their album as soon as possible. On top of that, not only did I want to go see them live so badly, but I WANTED TO MEET THEM! I remember they didn't release their second album "Life Is Peachy" yet, at the time, because I recall only buying/seeing their first album in stores. So I got to enjoy their self-titled album as I somewhat patiently awaited their second album to be released. From that day that I first heard them, my love for Korn grew and grew as time went by, and it hasn't stopped. ♥ I don't think a 8-year-old should have been obsessed with a band like I was, or am I mistaken? Lol. I still am, though, very much, and I'm proud of it. =]
In case anyone cares to read more about my heroes, my idols. =] http://www.korn.com/users/xpandora88x/blogs/5501201
So, what's your Korn story? When was the first time you ever heard of Korn, and what was the song you first heard?
