    In highschool music we were allowed to choose a song each that we like for the class to analyse, I chose this and was informed that it wasn't music. Watch this video Mrs Fletcher!!

    That "GO" followed by the guitar and second part of the bridge will always be one of my favorite moments in any song ever.

    People always complain about Fieldy's "sub slap" bass tone but i think its incredible. That huge room filling low end, mixed with rhythmic percussion that even though you might not realise it, you're grooving along to, creates this HUGE sound that's instantly recognizable. Honestly he's a great bassist who doesn't get the respect he deserves.

    Good to see Fieldy getting some props. He gets crapped on A LOT, but his signature sound is undeniably his and a pillar of Korn’s sound.

    Has anybody noticed how CRISP and ON POINT Rick's guitar tones are when he does these videos? It's INSANE!!!!!

    The fact that Rick breaks down such an incredible span of rock songs for us, explains the musical components and production behind all of the parts, yet probably gets no money at all from UA-cam because of demonitization, is really incredible. I love this series Rick, as an aspiring musician and a huge fanboy myself, I always look forward to these. Thank you!

    Nu-metal had some of the best acoustic, actually recorded, drums

    If you don't lose your damn mind when you hear GO...then you haven't lived lol. Glad he showed this song such a classic

    There’s a larger sense of appreciation for the music when it’s broken down like this. And I must agree, Jonathan’s vocal style is definitely what makes Korn.

    this band gets a lot of hate but going back and listening to this...they were really innovative. super talented. maybe these guys didn't go to Juilliard but they were super creative and 100% talented.

    Korn's first couple albums were pretty genius moments of song writing. I remember having the hardest time with their first album. I was trying to hard to get my head around it. But once I stopped trying to analyze what they were and started hearing what they were doing. I was freaking out how good they were.

    One of the things that I really love about this series is the lack of musical snobbery about genres. Rick recognises a great song regardless.

    So many people hating Korn, I just love it. The drums, the base, guitars and Jonathan on top. Just brilliant.

    I remember rushing home from school the day this song debuted on MTV because I was so pumped about it. I miss the days when you had to wait to get music, pay for music, and artists were heavily involved in when and how it was released. Nowadays, everything is instant, can be found for free, and it really takes away from the excitement of it all.

    I want to see you break down some Gojira so badly! I would recommend "The art of dying" or "The heaviest matter in the universe."

    I was a huge Korn fan in my teens. Sometime in my adulthood my mum told me about this time she came into my room to check on me late at night. It was 1998 and i was 15 years old. She said she opened the door and I was having a full on demonic fit. Now don't get me wrong, if I was wanking or having a seizure she would have intervened to stop either. But so fucked up, she said, were my movements and facial expressions that she just backed out of the room and hoped for the best.

    I've never been a big metalhead, but I can really appreciate good songs and when this came out I was immediately hooked. There's so much groove and rhythm that just makes you want to move. The sound of Davis' voice, the grunting and that dark, eery vibe still gets me. Thnx Rick for another great breakdown of a great song. And what a beautiful Gibson you have there!
