"Head" leaves Korn, finds God

This blows for anyone who likes Korn. I wish him well, but the band won't be the same without him.

Scott Stapp (former Creed crooner) would disagree, thought Creed was more mainstream rock than heavy metal.

Odd, very odd... when religion makes you quit doing the things you love, it seems more like fanaticism to me. Wonder if it was a drug induced light seeing?

Stryper would also disagree. :jester


The only religious band I've ever heard that legimately rocks the f' out is Bad Brains. However, they're rasta, so it's a little different.



Anyway, Korn's alright I guess, better than Limp Biskit. Really, though, the only nu metal I ever liked was the older Deftones.

Yeah that sucks.. Korn f'ing rocks.. Pop Music sucks.. Glad that some good band was able to put out a message like that and maybe open the eyes of the misguided youth wasting their money on that bubble gum no substance wanna be music crap that I would rather shove a 2 x 4 with rusty aids infected nails up my arse than listen to.. I have liked Korn from day 1.. Saw them on Ozzfest a couple of years ago and they rocked! I am sure they will find a new guitarist but it will never be the same..

Didn't see anyone mention Blink 182 broke up - looks like everyone is on the same page as me - WHO CARES? THEY SUCK.. lol..

KORN is MTV rock, and therefore, pop. It all depends on perspective, though, I guess.

Mmmmmmm, ok. Sure, Korn has there fair share of radio-play tunes, but there are just as many or more that are not popular or radio-friendly.
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.
