Trivia / Korn

  • Actor Allusion: On "Earache My Eye", 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.
  • Creator Breakdown
  • Enforced Method Acting: 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.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!:
    • Fred Durst and several others appear in the video of "Got The Life".
    • A young Aaron Paul appears in the video of "Thoughtless."
  • Hey, It's That Voice!:
    • Ice Cube on "Children of the Korn", Fred Durst on "All In The Family", and Cheech Marin on "Earache My Eye", all from Follow The Leader.
    • Amy Lee and Robert Smith on the versions of "Freak On A Leash" and "Make Me Bad/In Between Days" in MTV Unplugged.
  • Name's the Same: Korn once did a song with rapper Q-Tip, who was born Jonathan Davis.
  • One-Hit Wonder: 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."
  • Real Life Writes the Plot: The video for "Alone I Break" has to do with the band's internal turmoil at the time of recording the album.
  • Throw It In: Occurs with the most frequency on their Ross Robinson-produced albums.
    • For example, on Korn there's the Studio Chatter noise before "Clown", and the Hidden Track after "Daddy" is a tape that Robinson found in an abandoned house, containing a Cluster F-Bomb-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.
