* 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.
* HitlessHitAlbum: Korn has sold over 40 million albums worldwide, yet they barely scored a Top 40 hit in 2003 with [[ChartDisplacement a song that isn't close to being their signature]].
* NamesTheSame: Korn once did a song with rapper [[Music/ATribeCalledQuest Q-Tip]], who was born Jonathan Davis.
* 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 90's. Not to mention, "Did My Time" is certainly not their most famous song--that would probably be "Freak on a Leash."
* PromotedFanboy: [[Music/{{Slipknot}} Corey Taylor]] stated in an [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t4ZCtkIhw2A interview]] that he was "blown away" by Korn in 1995 after seeing the music video for "Clown" on Creator/{{MTV}} and then seeing them live as an opening act for Music/{{Megadeth}}. Since then, they've done shows together, became real-life friends, and over twenty years later, Taylor would be a guest feature in their song "A Different World".
* 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.
** 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 repressed memories came out in the 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.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: A CoverAlbum, entitled ''Korn Kovers'', was in development in the late 2000s, but David Silveria's departure and other obstacles led to it getting shelved in 2010. While promoting ''The Serenity of Suffering'', the band stated that they're planning to revisit the project [[RealSoonNow sometime soon]].
