Here's a swing version of Korn's Freak On A Leash

Robyn Adele Anderson

It's been quite the week for Korn on the internet. On Monday we had a guy playing Korn songs with literal pieces of corn, and now we've got a swing version of their angst-ridden anthem Freak On A Leash.

Singer Robyn Adele Anderson has reimagined the 1999 single (taken from 1998's Follow The Leader) as something much less venomous and aggressive than the original – but still with some trademark scatting. 

With a full band of keyboards, double bass, drums and a brass section, this is like no version of Freak On A Leash we've heard before. Although it does remind us of Richard Cheese quite a lot.

As well as helming the Metal Hammer website for the four years that followed, Luke also helped relaunch the Metal Hammer podcast in early 2018, producing, scripting and presenting the relaunched show during its early days. He also wrote regular features for the magazine, including a 2018 cover feature for his very favourite band in the world, Slipknot, discussing their turbulent 2008 album, All Hope Is Gone.
