KoЯn in 2009

Korn, stylized as KoЯn, is a nu metal band formed in 1993 by Brian Welch, James Shaffer, Reginald Arvizu, and David Silveria. Former band-member Welch stated that their signature sound came from an attempt to emulate Mr. Bungle's guitar tone, which they referred to as "the Bungle chord". Along with other bands of the time, they have also inspired many nu metal, alternative metal and rap metal bands through the mid-1990s and early 2000s. Vocalist Jonathan Davis has entered Hit Parader's "100 Greatest Heavy Metal Vocalists" list peaking at #16.
