The real Korn fans know what I'm talking about.
I don't believe that showing a video on MTV classifies a band as pop.
You guys can say what you want, but I'm right. lol Put it this way. . if you go see Korn, how many people show up? It's not exactly and underground band. It's a radio-play/video-play band where people will hear one song, and then they get their following.
Well, you don't have much else to reference it to that's not pop punk/metal rock. It's by no stretch Creed or Oasis, that's not what I'm saying. Linkin Park, Limp Biskit, Korn, POD, System of a Down, etc. . I do like some of the music, but it is most certainly a pop hardcore music. Even the Deftones softened up their music, which sucks. Hell, I like Tool, but they're in the same category. Just b/c it doesn't sound like Air Supply doesn't mean it's not pop rock.
If you like that sound, check out the Melvins.
I could give you 10 bands I think you'd love, but you probably wouldn't listen to them b/c you've never heard them.
And yes, being on MTV definitely knocks a band down a few notches, which is why I don't listen to any newer Rancid, Bosstones, Butthole Surfers, etc.
