** 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."

* ActorAllusion: On "Earache My Eye", [[Creator/CheechAndChong Cheech Marin]] sings "gonna tie my pecker to a tree, to a tree" at one point, a reference to another Cheech & Chong character, Red Neck.
* CreatorBreakdown
* 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, but ultimately all involved seem to have been pleased with the results.

* NamesTheSame: Korn once did a song with rapper [[Music/ATribeCalledQuest Q-Tip]], who was born Jonathan Davis.

* RealLifeWritesThePlot: The video for "Alone I Break" has to do with the band's internal turmoil at the time of recording the album.
* ThrowItIn: Occurs with the most frequency on their Ross Robinson-produced albums.
** For example, on ''Korn'' there's the StudioChatter noise before "Clown", and the HiddenTrack after "Daddy" is a tape that Robinson found in an abandoned house, containing a ClusterFBomb-laden argument about installing an exhaust manifold on a Dodge Dart between a husband and wife.
** A darker example with "Daddy": Davis actually broke down crying at the end of the song, and Robinson continued to roll the tape.
