No band was more instrumental to the ‘90s ascendancy of nu metal than Korn. Credited with inventing the genre through their unique fusion of metal and hip hop, Korn catapulted nu metal to mainstream success with their chart-topping 1998 album Follow the Leader. Peaking at No. 1 and earning them a Best Music Video Grammy for then-ubiquitous hit “Follow the Leader,” the album marked a watershed moment for the genre, paving the way for the future success of acts like Limp Bizkit and Slipknot. In 2013 Korn released their 11th studio album to positive reviews and a No. 1 spot on the Mainstream Rock chart with single “Never Never.” On tour in 2013 with metal icon Rob Zombie, Korn have been regaling ticket buyers with extended sets of their greatest hits, earning rave reviews for their in-your-face live concerts.
