** '''"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.

* 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).

* 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.

* OlderThanTheyThink: The band decided to cover "Word Up!" for their GreatestHits album because they had been playing it as a sound check for years.

** "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.

* TearJerker: "Daddy". The singer ''himself'' starts crying. The entire song is about child abuse. He comes close to it again in "Kill You", about his step mom.
** On the topic of "Daddy", The song itself is actually about ''child molestation'', as Johnathan based it from being molested by a family friend and telling his parents, only for [[CassandraTruth them not believing him]]. Hearing him breaking down into tears is spine chilling, even more by the fact his band mates did ''not know the lyrics were about him''. The lyrics...man the lyrics..:

** He also cries a little bit at the end of "Holding All These Lies." Of course, considering that Remember Who You Are was all about returning to form, one can't help but question if this bit of crying was genuine or done for the sake of nostalgia.
*** Pretty sure the crying in "Holding All These Lies" is genuine. An interview by ''Revolver'' reveals this is the first time Jon has cried during recording since ''Life is Peachy''.
*** They also made a song called Tearjerker which was the final song for ''See You On The Other Side''.

* BaseBreaker: ''See You On The Other Side'' alienated some of the more "hardcore" Korn fans with its softer sound. The Untitled album was supposed to bring back the fanbase, but it didn't help much...
