In the dawn of time, around 2005 or so, rumors started circulating online that Korn was preparing a cover album, sorry ‘Kovers’.
The nu metal daddies have a good track record in this regard, as anyone who has heard their reinvented versions of Pink Floyd Another Brick in the WallRadiohead’s Crawlor classic 80s funk from Cameo High word! can attest to that, and so when it was suggested that this new collection would see the Bakersfield band tackle classic cuts from Black Sabbath, Nine Inch Nails, Morbid Angel and more, we were more than a little nervous. at the idea.
And then… Nothing. No. Nothing. Now.
But wait… what is it? Korn singing the Backstreet Boys hit in 1999 I want it this way on the set of their latest music video, The worst is yet to come, and look like the happiest men in the world? That’s exactly it, yes.
Now, obviously, we’re not crazy enough to suggest that Korn should abandon their original concept for their Kovers Kollection and instead apply their talents to recording an album of their renditions of songs by the Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Britney and Xtina, but. ..come on…imagine how FUN that could be.
Look at their little faces. Bless.

Korn and old pals Evanescence recently announced that they will be hitting the road together this summer for a headlining tour across the United States.
The last time the two bands teamed up for a series of dates was in 2007, during the Korn Family Values Tour.
“We’re looking forward to touring this summer and bringing our friends, Evanescence,” said Jonathan Davis. “Every time Amy [Lee] comes to one of our shows, I always like to see her on the side of the stage looking at the whole set and swinging. We’re going to have a great time on this tour, and we look forward to seeing you there.
