Korn is going to be in Springfield on May 29th. I have a friend who is practically bagging me to go with her, as it's one of her favorite bands and no one else is able to go. She would go by herself, but what fun is that? Also, her ex-husband might be there, and she doesn't want to run into him alone. I'm not exactly a fan, but that's more because I just haven't listened to much of their music. I told her I'd let her know. I want to because I don't want her to go alone, but what fun would I be if I didn't know any of their songs? Going to look up some songs to listen too. Can any of you possible Korn fans tell me which songs would be good to listen to that they would likely play in concert? Thanks in advance.

I liked that breakdown in Freak on a Leash. 2:30 or so (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K27d7Ut5bXo), cool video too.

Also, they caused a riot at the Mid-South Coliseum once.

Cool. I like that song, but I didn't know it was Korn.

I kicked the idea of going to that show for a while, but I'd have to get off of work and rearrange shifts. not really worth it for a band that has lost two members and put out exactly 2-3 good songs in the last five years. they were GODS when I was in high school, though.

hmmmm....korn songs of interest... the list follows

freak on a leash
got the life
pretty much EVERYTHING from their debut album 'korn.'
(clown, blind, faget, daddy, shoots and ladders)
twisted transister
falling away from me
somebody someone
make me bad
wake up
trash
a.d.i.d.a.s.
wicked
it's on
dead bodies everywhere
children of the korn
coming undone
liar

there's a not-so-comprehensive list, but it's a great start. happy hunting.

Awesome! Thanks. Currently listening to Falling Away From Me.

They're a little heavier than I typically like, but I like it enough to be able to endure it for a few hours for a friend.

This is pretty much me. I've often wondered if the first album really is that much better or rather is it just that it came out when I was 17 and my tastes changed? I recently picked up their debut again after not having it for years and I find I still love it.

I am not sure if we they are on their downside, it's just rap metal and their sound era is over.

I've always liked KoRn. Yes, me, the music snob. I haven't heard a single song from their post-Brian "Head" Welch era, though.

Thats still mainly what they play in concert. They put on a great show, I can't wait for Rockfest. Korn is still my favorite band.

I haven't really followed a particular band since Pearl Jam but Korn has some decent music:

Here to Stay - my favorite
Thoughtless
Shoots and Ladders

And some remakes that turned out decent. I'm not a big fan of doing anyone elses work over although.

Most of it is heavy metal, head banging music. Be prepared to see lots of tattoos, piercings and neo-grunge wear at the concert. Don't get seats in "the pit' unless your ready to be bounced around like a $2 hooker in Vegas.

My advice: go, smoke a doobie and enjoy the show. Should be a good people watching experience. The chances of your friend running into her ex at a Korn concert are pretty minimal, you'll be luck if you don't lose each other.

I'm thinking my vice will be alcohol. I'll leave the doobie smoking to her, and she knows that. I'm going because she asked, so I'm going to see if she minds driving. I will probably stick near the exits. And, with her luck, if her ex is there, she'll run into him. The dude is a violently alcoholic asshole.

Didn't found out Korn was playing at rockfest until last month this will be the first time I will miss Korn in a long time was hoping to see them for the 6th time.

Heh. Its just that most bands usually have a core time window of 5-10 years at the height of their popularity.


By that time, alot of the fans have grown up, moved on, music scene has changed, band declined, etc.....

Korn broke what? Mid 1990's? Id say they had a good run and have lasted longer than most.

I seen them 2 times back in the 90's their first 2 Family Values tour's. The only thing i regret is being up front while Rammstien was playing. Little to gay of a set for me to watch. lol I seen alot of shit i didnt ever want to see. lol I have no problem if people are gay, but i dont want to watch a live sex act of 2 gay dudes on stage. lol

I don't go to many concerts anymore, but one thing I've started doing when I do go to one is I try to find out what setlist the band is touring with that season and I "prepare" by familiarizing myself with it before I go to see the show. That improves my experience IMO, although your mileage may vary. Of course, bands don't always stick to the same setlist throughout their tour so you never know. Here is a recent setlist from Korn's current tour:

Korn Concert Set List Denver, Fillmore Auditorium, 2009
Korn are back touring, with Johnathan Davis in fine form. Korn opened the set with Right Now. What would a Korn cover of Van Halen's Right Now sound like?
Korn's Denver Set List:
Right Now Chi
Good God
Did My Time
Thoughtless
Falling Away From Me
Fake
Clown
Ball Tongue
Bagpipes
Helmet In The Brush
Twist
Y'All Want A Single
pillowbiteret
Freak On A Leash
Blind
Here To Stay
Got The Life

Personally, I've never been a Korn fan, but if you're with a friend who's really getting into them it might be fun. You'll definitely see some freaks there (no offense to our local Korn fans intended) so if you're into people watching you'll be in a good spot for that.

I had their greatest hits album in 1998. It's called Follow the Leader.

My favorite is Issues. That was their darkest album, not their heaviest though. My 2nd would probably be Korn their debut album. And then Follow The Leader.

Korn pretty much always rocks. I have, and love, all their stuff, but it is hard to beat that first album. Who all do they have playing now? I know awhile ago that the were even playing some shows without Munky. He is probably back for sure, but that is why the first few were best when they were all together with David and Head. Glad you had fun. I think Fieldy and Jon can make that sound with three guys of the street like Haley would.

Then dont ever go to a rock concert. When you have 10,000 fucking people smashing into your back, there isnt a fucking thing you can do. You just have to ride the damned wave. I went to Korn way back in 1998 on their first family values tour in San Fran, Cow Palace baby and never ever ever again would i attempt to get in the front of a concert, shit is so not worth it. I just remember after the only thing i could think of was i need af ucking drink of water. I started to panic i was so dehydrated haha. I ran to the van we went in and chugged hell of water we had in the ice chests.

Its crazy being in the crowd, people that surf kick you in the face, shoes being thrown and hitting you in the head and having no fucking idea who it was that threw it, because you cant turn around. lol

After that, i told myself, never again, will i attempt to be cool and get up front.

I went and saw them about 9 years ago when Staind opened for them. This was the Mud Shovel days for Staind (in other words, when they were good) and it was a damn good show. It wasn't T00l or Rush quality, but it was pretty bad ass.

Staind could have been one of my all time favorite bands, but they went pussy after break the cycle. I was so dissapointed after that album. They have some really really good songs on their first 3 albums, even then 2 are basically the same.
