|Korn is a nu metal band from Bakersfield, California, United States. They originally formed as LAPD (which stood for Love And Peace Dude), which consisted of all five members apart from singer Jonathan Davis. They later changed their name to Creep. When Davis joined the band in 1993, they began styling their name as KoЯn (with a backwards letter "R"), releasing their debut album Korn through Epic/Immortal Records in October 1994. Other alternate spellings include KORN and KoRn.
Korn is often credited with inspiring the wave of nu metal bands in the late 1990s and early 2000s and in particular with assisting the careers of Limp Bizkit and Deftones.
Davis' distinctive singing — often a series of grunts, whines and bizarre scats (somewhat reminiscent of those used by Mike Patton) — and his lyrics, are inspired in part by his alleged child abuse by an unnamed party. The group's music is a blend of pounding, tribal drums and loud, distorted seven-string guitars (a standard guitar has only six), and has gained the band popularity throughout the years. The band is also notable for their collaborations with hip hop artists such as Ice Cube and Nas.
As of 2004, the group remained successful; Korn recently released a greatest hits album, with two cover versions as singles. The first single is a cover of Cameo's 1980s hit, Word Up. The other is a cover of the three parts of Pink Floyd's Another Brick in the Wall.
The band completed their record deal with Sony Records and now plans to release their future albums themselves, setting a new precedent for big name artists. They are releasing an album hopefully early Fall.
Brian "Head" Welch, citing religious/moral objections to the band's music, left Korn on February 22, 2005. He has turned highly religious, even being baptized in the Jordan River. This was the band's first line up change.
