Favorite Korn ‘Follow the Leader’ Song – Readers Poll
On Aug. 18, 1998, Korn released ‘Follow the Leader,’ the album that would finally catapult the band from hard rocking underdogs to essentially conquering the rock radio world. This Readers Poll asks you, Korn fans, what track off of the ‘Follow the Leader’ album is your favorite.
Though Korn had built a following toward the beginning of the ’90s, ‘Follow the Leader’ was perfectly timed to coincide with what was dubbed the “nu-metal” or “rap-rock” movements that would carry over into the next decade. The group got things started with ‘Got the Life,’ a bouncy, energetic rocker that was so infectious you couldn’t help banging your head or pogoing upon hearing it.
Korn followed with the equally successful single ‘Freak on a Leash,’ best known for Jonathan Davis‘ unique mid-song breakdown and some nifty interplay between guitarists Munky, Head and bassist Fieldy. ‘Follow the Leader’ also featured its share of interesting collaborative efforts with rapper Ice Cube turning up on ‘Children of the Korn,’ Fred Durst lending a hand on ‘All in the Family’ and Tre Hardson hopping on board for ‘Cameltosis.’ Add in fellow favorites ‘Dead Bodies Everywhere,’ ‘B.B.K.,’ ‘Seed,’ and ‘My Gift to You’ among others and ‘Follow the Leader’ was definitely one of Korn’s standout releases.
