* ValuesDissonance: In "Children of the Korn" and "Faget", Jonathan Davis grapples with childhood memories of bullies that accused him of being "gay". While those are harmless, cathartic {{CreatorBreakdown|s}}, it's not far-fetched to hear them as implying homophobia, considering Davis and [[Music/LimpBizkit Fred Durst]] toss such slurs at one another in "All in the Family". Or maybe Davis was just tactless about it; the video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K67veEPOYM "Hater"]] is dedicated to fans who sent the band accounts of their experiences of bullying, including a lesbian fan who briefly discusses her own gay-bashing.

* ValuesDissonance: Frontman Jonathan Davis grapples with his childhood experience of being accused of homosexuality by bullies on "Faget" and "Children of the Korn" and, although these songs are simply cathartic in nature, it isn't far-fetched to read an implied ''disapproval'' toward homosexuality into them, which isn't helped by the fact that Davis and [[LimpBizkit Fred Durst]] toss homophobic slurs at one another wholesale on "All in the Family." However, this is clearly the product of a mere lack of tact rather than actual intent to convey a homophobic sentiment, which would simply be uncharacteristic of the band (the video for Korn's recent single [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0K67veEPOYM "Hater"]] is dedicated to fans who sent the band accounts of their experiences of bullying, which includes a lesbian fan who briefly discusses being picked on due to her homosexuality).

* SoOkayItsAverage: Those who were not completely turned off by ''The Path of Totality'' generally feel that whatever value it has is largely the novelty of dubstep metal. One critic referred to it as sounding like "a remix album for which no original version exists."

** '''"Daddy"'''! It's about how Davis was molested by his [[DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale (female)]] babysitter as a child and how his family [[CassandraTruth didn't believe him when he told them]]. On the album, he doesn't just start crying, he has [[BerserkerTears a full-blown, screaming and completely real mental breakdown]]! The rest of the band, who had no idea that the song was about him, seem to be awkwardly trying to keep up as they hear just how overwhelmed he eventually becomes. Not surprisingly, they don't play it live.

* WinBackTheCrowd: ''The Serenity of Suffering'' surprised a lot of people, and while not a full return or praise of that of ''Untouchables'', ''Life is Peachy'' or even the self-titled, it still garnered some impressed reactions, especially to those who were disappointed with past Korn albums.

** "Daddy" is this ''in spades'', not only because of what really happened to Davis, but the fact it has ''AdultFear'' written '''all over it'''. Davis's full-blown mental breakdown at the end doesn't help.

** "Daddy" is this ''in spades'', not only because of what really it has AdultFear written all over it, but because it's based on something that actually happened to Davis, Jonathan Davis. The lyrics are unsettling, but the fact it has ''AdultFear'' written '''all over it'''. Davis's full-blown primal, genuine mental breakdown at the end doesn't help.is a horrifying, showing just how psychologically damaging sexual abuse can be.
