* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The entire ''Untouchables'' album.
** The [[SelfTitledAlbum self-titled debut]] deserves special mention, as it was the beginning of the NuMetal era in earnest. It cannot be overstated just how ''fresh'' the album sounded at the time.
** For both Korn and Music/PinkFloyd, whenever the former plays their cover of "Another Brick In The Wall" live, expect everyone present, many of whom are more likely to have been too young to remember the latter in their heyday, singing, with the strength of every fiber of their being, "HEY! TEACHER! Leave those kids alone!!" It really proves that song's staying power.
* BrokenBase:
** ''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...
** Korn III seems to be doing the trick.
** [[GenreShift The Path of Totality]] has started this up again, with reactions the the bands new {{Dubstep}} sound being .... mixed, to say the least.
** This continued to occur for their single Never Never, and many fans wondered if the new album would be any good. However, the new album seems to have received praise from many fans for returning to their NuMetal roots.
** The return of Head has helped immensely.
*** Speaking of which, his departure from Korn in 2005 caused quite a stir among fans. Not just because of the departure itself but also because of the ''reasoning'' behind it (his conversion to Christianity). A matter not helped by the fact that, for a short while afterwards, he was publicly denouncing the band (especially Jonathan Davis) and its music. While he remains a dedicated Christian to this day, his views of the band and its music have softened up considerably.
* CoveredUp:
** Cameo's "Word Up".
** Also inverted: not by them; but the artists covering Davis' songs in ''Film/QueenOfTheDamned''.
* EarWorm: "Fear is a place to liiiiive..."
** "WAAAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIT! I AM COMING UNDONE!"
** "Feelin' like a freak on a leash!"
** "Love sooong for the dear departed..."
** "SHUT THE FUCK UP! GET UP!!!"
** "You're so cynical, narcissistic cannibal. Not to bring myself back from the DEEAAAAADDDD!!!!"
** *[[{{Dubstep}} Wub wub wub wub]]*
* SugarWiki/FunnyMoments: From the Korn WesternAnimation/SouthPark episode.
--> '''Jonathan Davis:''' "Korn! Form of...corn!"
** The video for "Twisted Transistor", where the band is portrayed by the likes of Snoop Dogg, Lil' Jon, Xzibit and David Banner.
* [[GatewaySeries Gateway Music]]: The majority of metalheads in the 2000s became fans through Korn. This is a quality of all nu-metal.
* MemeticMutation: ''ARE YOU READY?!?'' from "Blind".
* MisattributedSong: Pick a famous nu-metal song. Chances are at least someone out there thinks it's by them.
* NauseaFuel[=/=][[NightmareFuel/MusicVideos Nightmare Fuel]]:
** The video for "Right Now". It contains a disturbingly [[DerangedAnimation animated man]] mutilating himself in [[{{Fingore}} various]] [[EyeScream horrific]] [[BodyHorror ways]]. The "highlight"? When he ''pulls his entire skull out of his mouth!''
** Then there's the video for their cover of "Word Up!", where [[UncannyValley the band member's faces are digitally superimposed onto dogs]].
** The dogs are less disturbing than watching "Lloyd's Lunchbox" (name of the animation) set to Korn.
** The song "Pretty" is unnerving enough, but when you learn the truly horrifying story behind the lyrics, it goes to a whole other level.
** "Daddy" is this ''in spades'', not only because it has AdultFear written all over it, but because it's based on something that actually happened to Jonathan Davis. The lyrics are unsettling, but Davis's primal, genuine mental breakdown at the end is a horrifying, showing just how psychologically damaging sexual abuse can be.
* OlderThanTheyThink: The band decided to cover "Word Up!" for their GreatestHits album because they had been playing it as a sound check for years.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: Considering how many metal bands ripped off the sound of the band's SelfTitledAlbum, it can be hard to believe that at one time it sounded original.
* SignatureSong: "Freak on a Leash", "Narcissistic Cannibal and "Word Up!"
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''The Path of Totality'', which was mostly dubstep, drum 'n' bass and [[HarshNoise noise]] [[HeavyMetal metal]]. See BaseBreaker above.
* TearJerker: Davis comes close to it in "Kill You", about his step mom.
** '''"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, although they ''did'' play it live for the twentieth anniversary of the self titled, and even ''still'', despite Davis's insistence he was okay performing the song, you could tell it was still hard for him.
--> ''No one hears me''
-->''It hurt!''
-->''I'm not a liar''
-->''My God!''
-->''Saw you watching''
-->''Mommy why?!''
-->''Your own child''
** He also cries a little bit at the end of "Holding All These Lies." This was also completely sincere.
** "Tearjerker" is also the final song for ''See You On The Other Side''.
* UglyCute: The weird little baby thing from the "A different world" music video and the sado-masochistic man from "Right now!".
* 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.
