Guitarist Brian ‘Head’ Welch recently told Metal Hammer that the Californian quintet now take pride in being credited as the originators of the nu-metal genre.
“We’re proud to be seen as scene elders,” says Head. “It’s funny, every band that would be associated with nu metal never liked that title, because we never gave that tag to ourselves, it was whoever made it up, you know? When you’re in a band, you want to call the shots, you want to be In charge of your branding, and it was someone else who branded us that. And so we were like, No, that's not cool. So we didn't like it.
“But nu metal, love it or hate it, and Korn, has stood the test of time. And we're very grateful that we can be looked at as the originators, and that we started something that still reverberates all these decades later, and people are still liking it.”
