eggnog, they're going to milk the cow dry as a bone before they call it quits.

The cow is three quarters empty. So it's going to be a year or two.

In another point, I know Samuel L. Jackson was in the first 'XXX', but where's Vin Diesel? They replaced him with Ice Cube?

here here metalthekid, i love that band and have since they first started but the covers NEED TO STOP...

it's kinda funny, they go their whole career with one cover (wicked), which was pretty much 1/2 korn 1/2 the members of deftones, mostly Chino, going batshhit and having fun with the riff...plus wicked was a dark song and Korn were a more dark band at the time......

so while theres some irony to 'nother brick in the wall and word up they hardly fit....maybe covering ozzy isnt so outlandish.....ozzy was a pioneer and hate em or like em so were korn....but ouside of nin and ozzy it's just a lazy attempt to cash in on some pretty much sure-fire radio play......

new album of all originals is supposed to show up some time this year, im hoping for the best but not ruling out what may be the worst....we'll see

WTF!? Xzibit? Who next? f***ing eminem or snoop dogg? Korn got me to listen to real metal but now they f***ing suck. They're 1st 2 albums were great. Now, all they do is covers!? WTF!? Do these guys never give up to earn money? They are all ready FINISHED! NO MORE KORN. Welch already left the band and he made a good choice.
I liked Korn, but now, I never will again.

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You people make my so f***ing mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please explian why people who hate them waste their time posting about a band they hate. You guys talk like all they do is make cover songs. They have 6 albums out. I think theyve olny cover like 5 songs. Yea its better to hear their stuff but its not like all they do is make cover albums. I think people need to stop b****ing about what KoRn is doing. You cant change it anyways. I love them guys to pieces. Thier music has helped me for about ten years now. And if some of these people were true KoRn fans they wouldnt care if they cover 1000 songs. They will always be the best band in the whole world.

Well the song would have been worse if they didnt do the solo. It's part of the song and I think it's pretty amazing that they could play that solo. From what I hear It's not that easy... That wasn't the worst cover they did. Word Up was a bad cover but thats only b/c the sucked to begin with. Istill listen to it though...Before you bag on a cover they did pay a f***in tention!!!!
