NOTE: But first, a special notice for Korn fans before you read the list — don't freak out when you see a bunch of Korn albums in a row. Korn have 14 studio albums compared to Linkin Park's seven, Limp Bizkit's six, and System of a Down's five. Quite literally, Korn have double the amount of albums as any other band here. So naturally, they're just going to pop up in the list that much more often.
