Top 10 Best KoRn Songs
"Freak on a Leash" is one of the most innovative songs ever written by KoRn. They brought a new style with the first two albums and completely achieved it with this song and album. Absolutely killer! "Issues" also has some jewels like "Falling Away From Me" and the underrated "Dirty," the last album song.
This is obviously one of their signature songs and their most well-known, but I feel as if other songs like Falling Away From Me, Here To Stay, Make Me Bad, etc., aren't getting enough love here. They're as good as this one.
Before hearing this song, I didn't listen to KoRn, but now I have listened to just about all their songs, and this is still the best. I have to listen to it every time I hear it. You haven't lived until you've heard it.
Love this song. It's a classic by them. KoRn isn't nu-metal! They spawned the imitators who were labeled new metal, as everyone wanted to sound like KoRn, hence the label Nu-Metal. As for their greatest song, I would have to say either Kill You or Good God from the Life is Peachy album. But Blind is always right up there.
Stop listening to that new so-called Korn (after Follow the Leader). Realize it's trash. These old albums are raw, direct, natural, and sincere. There is no hypocrisy in them. Because after Follow the Leader, all the band was after was making money (hate that new sound). I hope this helps!
I bought this album and Life is Peachy right after their releases back in the '90s. Eight of Korn's top ten songs are on these albums for sure. Got the Life is up there though.
The new 2013 album is actually great. The first four songs are great. Love and Meth is Korn's best song in almost over ten years.
This is KoRn's true masterpiece. It's beautiful, saddening, and hardcore all at the same time. The message behind it adds to the beauty of this song. This song is unmatched throughout KoRn's entire collection, heck, it's even up there with some of the best metal songs of the '90s. Truly amazing.
This song is amazing! Its intro/soft verses contrast beautifully with the heavy, angry patches of the song and it's almost beyond compare to most of KoRn's other music, one exception being Freak on a Leash.
Nothing compares to the gorgeous, dark, and slightly disturbing mood of this song. With an important meaning in the lyrics alongside an awesome mind-numbing guitar riff, this song makes for a brilliant composition by an amazing band.
This is one of the best Nu Metal songs ever. I heard it on the radio a few months ago, and I started listening to KoRn a few days later, and this was the first song. I think the best bands out there are KoRn, Linkin Park, and Slipknot.
I just started listening to this album, as Google Play didn't have it before. I'm in total love with the whole album. It's very underrated, but this song is so awesome. The chorus is the best, very simple, slightly repetitive, but that's what makes it awesome. KoRn is hands down the best nu-metal group out there. Thumbs up to all those who voted for it.
I was two when Follow the Leader came out, so maybe it's just because I was old enough to remember Coming Undone when it was released, and it was a banger.
1. Coming Undone
2. Falling Away from Me
3. Freak on a Leash
4. Got the Life
5. Shoots and Ladders
7. Good God
8. Here to Stay
9. Alone I Break
I couldn't choose which song is the best for me, but I finally picked Here to Stay because of the riffs (which are amazing!) and the energy that I feel every time I hear Jonathan singing bring it down. It's a shame to say, but I'm not a Korn fan for a long time. My boyfriend showed me their music, and I totally fell in love with the band (now he's laughing about which band I'm going to 'steal' from him next). I just love the feeling when I hear the music and Jonathan's voice. Sometimes they make me feel incredibly good. Other times, the lyrics make me cry like a baby. This is real music - when you can feel each emotion listening to it, and you know that it can help you in any situation.
This is definitely the best song by KoRn, obviously after "Freak On A Leash," of course! It has one of the most powerful riffs that KoRn has ever made. The chorus is so catchy, and the drums are incredibly amazing and full of rhythm. David Silveria FTW! Head and Munky complemented each other very well at the time of doing the "Bring it Down" Riff, and Fieldy is just from another world! The song is 10/10.
This is easily KoRn's best song to date, coming from an unbiased and relatively new fan of KoRn. I heard this on the radio and fell in love, learned about all the good KoRn songs. This still remains my favorite from them, though.
This song is just too awesome! It gets better every time you listen to it because you hear something unique and more interesting with every listen, or think about a completely different meaning every time. Good job, KoRn!
Awesome. That's all I have to say. It's Jonathan with the rest of the band that makes an awesome voice and good singing the whole time. I honestly think this is their best.
I can't even put into words how much I love this song. This is definitely my favorite. It's so catchy, and I can't imagine people disliking it. It's impossible to get sick of this song. This is honestly the best KoRn song. The part after he repeats "dance with me" literally gives me an eargasm. This song is beautiful in every way possible.
Since '94, KoRn was most known for the song Blind, which put them on the map. Though I got hooked on the KoRn bandwagon with this breakthrough song from their third album, Follow the Leader. Got the Life. The video showed a different side of KoRn lots of fans never knew. Their party vibe was less serious, less dark. Still, KoRn is one of those unpredictable, kick-ass bands.
A great song, for sure. This is one of their songs that I can listen to on repeat and not get bored. The vocals in the verse are especially impressive and so full of energy. If you like the heavy, "something's-wrong" sound of KoRn songs like "Shoots and Ladders" or "Freak on a Leash," then you'll absolutely love this song. Let's vote it up!
The only reason I believe this should be lower on the list is because of the official music video. Otherwise, the overall sound of the song is amazing. I love the heavy bass, intense and almost creepy riff, the angry chorus, and the signature KoRn breakdown.
This song is leaps and bounds above all the other KoRn songs. This was the first song I heard from them, and talk about being disappointed when I found out that the rest of their songs were not like this at all. Great riff, awesome drums, and great vocals.
When it comes to KoRn, it's hard to pick a favorite. It's such a good band. But in the end, I'll have to say that this one takes the cake. Chelsea Grin also covered it, which makes things cooler.
This is one of their most complex songs before going the electronic route later in their career. As a guitarist who plays a seven-string as well as bass, it's hard to combine effects with technique for a heavy yet otherworldly sound such as in this song. Creatively, this is their best song ever from an unbiased musician's point of view. Though I feel Alone I Break should be on this list and Evolution taken off the list.
This song has the BEST VIDEO ever and such an awesome chorus! The guitar riffs go so well with the bass and vocals. This song is so underrated. It's legendary and should be top 3 at least! VOTE!
INCREDIBLE video and one of the catchiest songs KoRn has ever made. I genuinely am unable to go a whole day without listening to this song. It definitely deserves to be higher than Twisted Transistor!
Fantastic chord progressions, great lyrics. The chorus is quite good, besides being obviously catchy. It displays their amazing songwriting talent for music that is both catchy and well-written. Interesting elements include the organ. I love how they keep reinventing things. That's what they're known for, after all. I love Jonathan Davis's voice! Utterly beautiful. Such a fun, great song. Great job, you guys! This one should get higher on the list, for sure!
Best Korn song ever! Narcissistic Cannibal has a great chorus along with great music to go along with it. Skrillex also did a really good job mixing this song. By far and away, this is my favorite Korn song. The whole album, Path of Totality, has some of Korn's best tracks ever.
This may be their greatest song yet. I mean, don't get me wrong, I love Blind, Falling Away From Me, Freak on a Leash, Ya'll Want a Single, and Ball Tongue. But this song redefines Korn. Whether you think that's a good thing or not is up to you, but if you ask me, their old stuff was overdone a long time ago. Come on, people, let's support the fact that Korn may have just created their second new genre!
I was really close to picking Twisted Transistor, but the amazing lyrics and overall epicness of this song made me reconsider. I know the reason it's not number one is that Korn has too many styles to be herded into one group.
This song is incredibly soft for Korn, and it works in a way that no other Korn song does. Is it the best Korn song? No, but it definitely should be higher than 8!
Incredible song. I'm not going to argue against any of the songs above it because they're all great, but Thoughtless is an awesome, meaningful song.
What? How is this not top 5, at least top 10?
My top 10 would be:
1. Freak on a Leash
2. Got the Life
3. Falling Away from Me
4. Somebody, Someone
5. Make Me Bad
6. Did My Time
7. Here to Stay
The rest I don't know. Too hard to list.
Coming Undone is good, but I think it's overrated.
Awesome song that truly deserves at least the top 20. I need somebody, someone to vote for this song with me. The intro alone should place it in the top 20, one of the greatest intros ever!
Needs to be higher! I listen to this at least twice a day!
Dun, dun, dun. EHHH! The guitar riffs at the beginning and breakdown are just so heavy I want to headbang my head off. KoRn did great in this song, and the best part of this song is mostly the intro of the band talking and yelling at each other. Whenever I listen to the intro to the song, I laugh so hard. I just love it! Don't get me wrong, but when I listen closely to the guitar riffs, I think of clowns getting stung by bees for no reason, but the rest of this song is so badass, I will listen to it for the rest of my life! Thumbs up for this song and this amazingly awesome kick-ass band!
An amazingly powerful song, it should be ranked way higher than 22! One of their first singles with so much energy!
This is a great song. I listen to it almost every day. It pumps me up.
This should be in the top 5, you noobs. I bet you haven't even listened to this song! Look at the lyrics. Oh wait, I forgot you're too young for this. I've listened to KoRn for almost a decade now, and this is definitely one of their best songs from arguably their best album. It never gets old. Top 5:
1. Falling Away From Me
2. Here To Stay
3. Freak On A Leash
4. Make Me Bad
New KoRn is the same two songs played with different chords - Classic KoRn experimented with rhythms and textures and thought outside the box. Now it's just the Queen of the Damned soundtrack 12, 13, 14...
This song is so catchy. The first time I heard it, I couldn't stop listening to it! I just love the rhythm and beat of the song. This song deserves a better spot on the list.
This is my new favorite Korn song. You can really hear the bass in this track, and Fieldy did an amazing job on that (this may be my new favorite bass track). Head and Munky outdid themselves on this, especially in the solo, and I can't stop listening to the chorus. This song deserves to be in the top ten at least.
I can't believe what this song is doing at number 13. It's one of their best, at least top 5. Great guitar riff, great vocals. What's there not to like in this song? My top 5:
1. Did My Time
2. Here To Stay
3. Freak On A Leash
5. Twisted Transistor
Right Now isn't even the best song from TaLatM, let alone one of the best Korn songs. Did My Time has some of the greatest lyrics I've heard in Korn songs, and there are plenty of amazing Korn lyrics.
I was listening to the full Issues album, and this definitely caught my attention the most. It's got a catchy chorus that you can headbang to, and it's just generally really high-quality.
This song deserves an actual music video by VEVO, not just anybody's version. This song has craziness and a great tune. It should be in the top 3, but Falling Away from Me should still be pretty high. My ranking:
2. Falling Away From Me
4. Freak On A Leash
5. All In The Family
6. Right Now
7. Here To Stay
8. One More Time
9. Make Me Bad
10. Narcissistic Cannibal
Twisted Transistor and Coming Undone are good, but I think they're overrated.
No way. This is the best Korn song. It is the perfect mix of chilling, then hardcore, and this song should have been in the top 10 for sure. I have listened to many of Korn's other songs, and believe me, this is the best one.
17 with 1% of the votes? Guys, this is hands down in KoRn's top 5. It's scary, freaky, heavy, melodic, and just all-around epic. It really defines what '90s KoRn was all about - telling the truth about the world in an original, creative way (bagpipes, anyone?). Just watch the video, and you'll realize that this is WAY better than Coming Undone or Evolution!
How is this so low? This is an amazing song! The bagpipes at the beginning sound amazing! (Go Jonathan Davis!) Plus, the song altogether is one I just can't stop listening to. It's different compared to some other songs from their first two albums and deserves a higher rating.
WHY IS THIS SONG SO LOW!? Behind Freak On A Leash, this is their best song in my opinion. All you have to do is listen to it once to know why. Jonathan Davis's vocals are great, the guitar and bass go together perfectly to create that heavy KoRn sound, and the drums are spot-on. Please, give the song a chance if you've never heard it before. Trust me, you won't be disappointed. Let's get the votes up on this KoRn classic!
Are you kidding me? Lyrically, their most profound song. Talks about the de-evolution of mankind. Haunting intro. Insane verse and pre-chorus. The most memorable chorus by far. And wow, the bridge is their most intense. My favorite song and easily deserving of a top 5 at least.
Easily #1, it feels different than most of KoRn's songs, feels more compact as in not a bunch of ideas glued together but one huge idea. I don't know, that's just how I feel about this song, and no other KoRn song feels that way, so it's an easy choice for me.
A while back, I found a bunch of KoRn songs on Playlist.com and made a playlist just for them. There were about 30 songs or so, and Evolution was the fourth on the list. I never made it past Evolution - I would just keep replaying it over and over again.
This song is one of their greatest, even though it's new. Either way, Rotting in Vain is building a big legacy that reminisces those '90s hits.
1. Freak on a Leash
3. Falling Away from Me
4. Got the Life
5. Here to Stay
6. Shoots and Ladders
7. Coming Undone
8. Rotting in Vain
This song is so awesome it's ridiculous. It's heavy and aggressive, and the vocals absolutely blew me away. Great instrumentals too. It's a huge throwback to their old work and, in my opinion, even better. Yes, it's new, but it kicks ass.
The new album is awesome. Not sure if it's not the best ever. And Rotting In Vain is probably the best song on it, so...
It's quite sad to see how little recognition songs from Life Is Peachy are getting. It is their best album. This song is epic. Listen to the bass, the passion in Jonathan's voice, etc. Top 10.
This song is underrated. Good God brings out Jonathan Davis's rage and anger into this masterpiece of a song. His scream is the loudest of all KoRn songs.
Should be much higher on this list. In my opinion, it's one of the heaviest songs KoRn has made and has a lot of heart put into it, with amazing riffs and vocals.
Seriously, great song! It is somewhat different from other Korn songs, but it is just truly amazing. This is definitely a favorite in my top 5. Give it another listen!
I can't stop listening to this one. It may not be as iconic as Freak On A Leash or Blind, but it should still be just as much considered.
This is just an awesome song. I'm surprised to find it so low on the list. This song has pain and emotions all over it. "I have lived the best I can, does this make me not a man?" That says it all.
"Feeling complacent, I cannot be contained.
I'm so lost and lonely now."
This song has everything: powerful guitar riffs, amazing drumming, and incredible melodies. The chorus has quite possibly the best vocal performance in Jonathan Davis' career. There is so much power in the bridge... unbelievable.
I can't get enough of that song! My favorite!
Great song, and a very relatable meaning too. I never thought that love could ruin your life as much as drugs can before I heard this song!
Best ever on The Paradigm Shift. Korn just came to my country, Australia, since 2013.
I won't make very many friends after sharing this statement, but I voted for this song. A lot of people dislike this song because of how disturbing it is. However, I have always liked disturbing stuff. Not that I am happy about Jonathan Davis being molested by his father - I feel pity for that part of his childhood. What I appreciate about this song is that it's just so disgusting and horrible, yet it's so entertaining.
This song is incredibly sad and depressing. The song is about how Jonathan was molested as a child, and how his parents wouldn't believe him. I would've imagined how hard this song would've been for Jonathan to write, since in an interview he claimed he couldn't bring himself to perform this song live (that's changed over time now, and he's fine with singing it).
It's not my favorite KoRn song, but everyone should listen to this song. The raw emotion in the song and the truth it conveys are literally fantastic. I went through some similar stuff as a child, and this song speaks truth. Everyone needs to know the world is not all pretty flowers and rainbows. There is hurt and pain too.
Dark song. Awesome vocals and instrumentals, it is amazing! Listen to it. It truly is KoRn's best!
This song is my favorite from Life Is Peachy and one of my favorites from KoRn. Very underrated song.
The chorus is amazing. This song should at least be in the top ten.
Oh God, what is there to say? This is, without a doubt, Korn's best song. Munky's and Head's intense riffs, Head's chorus... The end is the most intense part of the song. Every hair on my body stands up hearing this song.
One of the best.
