Korn partied at Ground Zero for Generation Nu. Jonathan Davis provided the requisite angst for the Juggalo Nation. They became Metallica for a generation to whom Rage Against the Machine was Led Zeppelin, and Dr. Dre's The Chronic was a cultural touchstone. The band itself plumbed the depths of the seriously downtuned and dissonant like nobody's business. and created a genre in the process. Two records later they pimped it all out with the thumping disco beat of Follow the Leader and gave Fred Durst a career in the process. And yes, Korn has spawned a ton of shitty music: on the other hand, they also inspired the likes of Slipknot and Deftones. Now Korn don't suck. They've just become culturally uncool. And their recent remix platter certainly beats the pants off lowbrow beat-slingers like Methods of Mayhem. Then again bassist Fieldy did think his rap solo project Fieldy"s Dream was a good idea. Not so much Reginald.
