During approximately 28 years of work, of course, there are many things that have colored Korn’s musical career journey, both those that are known to the public or those that are still a secret and only known by loyal fans. To know more about Korn, here are some interesting facts about Korn as one of the veterans in the international nu-metal music scene.
The history of Korn’s song, written by Matt Karpe, will also tell about their dynamics as a band. One of them is Munky’s role in finding the name Korn. Munky Korn was the first to propose the idea for the name of the band he formed. Initially, Munky suggested the name “Corn” but the other members did not agree with the choice. Persistent enough to defend his argument, Munky Korn finally modified the name “Corn” to “Korn” with the letter “R” pointing opposite to the logo.
As all Korn connoisseurs know, this nu-metal band was left by one of their guitarists for religious reasons. In 2005, at a time when Korn’s career was taking its toll, surprisingly guitarist Brian “Head” Welch decided to leave the band that made his name. His decision to resign from Korn did not only surprise his fans, but his bandmates also felt the same way.
All the remaining members of Korn at that time did not believe the reason given by Head. The guitarist chose to leave the band because he wanted to learn more about the religion he believed in. Head feels that a career in music keeps him away from God. At the same time, Head also has problems with dependence on alcohol and sedatives. He felt it was the right time to quit Korn. After the problems had subsided and he felt closer to the creator, Head finally agreed to fill the void in the nu-metal band again in 2013.
In addition, at the beginning of Korn’s formation, a young nu-metal band at that time had the courage to show off in front of the already famous Red Hot Chili Peppers. This incident began when Korn was about to do band practice, Fieldy saw Anthony Kiedis and Chad Smith across the street. Taking advantage of the momentum, the bassist finally tried to convince the two members of the Red Hot Chili Peppers to see Korn play in the studio and the offer was accepted by both of them. But unexpectedly, Anthony Kiedis and Chad Smith felt normal with Korn’s music playing at that time. It is known that at that time, Korn was training under the influence of alcohol and they realized that their playing music at that time was bad enough to be exhibited in public, let alone in front of famous people.
