* EnforcedMethodActing: Reportedly, producer Ross Robinson went to great lengths to get Korn to "remember who they were" when recording their 9th album. This included measures ranging from aggressively taunting/berating the new drummer to make him play more passionately to bringing Jonathan Davis's wife and son into the studio and making them sit across from him while he recorded vocals. Even Davis's therapist got on Ross's case about this. While all involved parties were pleased with the results at the time, Davis went on record years later as having come to regret it; to paraphrase Davis, Robinson did Robinson stuff to the point where it sucked all the fun out of making the album/

* CreatorBacklash: Davis has grown to dislike the third self-titled due to their experiences with Ross Robinson. While he still has a tremendous amount of respect for Robinson, his "warts and all" approach led to him doing things that outright pissed the band off that Davis felt weren't really necessary, namely making Davis' wife sit across from him while he tracked vocals for a song that was about her substance issues. It was that, coupled with various other things that sucked every last ounce of fun out of the recording process, that made Davis eventually come to view the album as a mistake. While Robinson's approach may have been the best thing for them in 1994, Davis concluded that by 2009, revisiting the past was not what they needed as a band.

** A darker example with "Daddy": Davis actually broke down crying at the end of the song, and Robinson continued to roll the tape.

to:

** A darker example with "Daddy": Davis actually broke down crying Davis's BerserkerTears and primal screaming at the end of "Daddy" was completely real. The song is about how he was molested as a child, and the song, and Robinson continued to roll repressed memories came out in the tape.recording, causing him to have a melt down. The rest of the band can be heard trying to keep up with him at the end, unaware that he wasn't just acting.

* OneHitWonder: Technically, "Did My Time" was their only top 40 hit on the Hot 100, but they are one of the most well known rock bands of the past 15 years. Not to mention, "Did My Time" is certainly not their most famous song--that would probably be "Freak on a Leash."
