KoЯn – Another Brick in the Wall Parts 1, 2 and 3 (Pink Floyd cover) Lyrics 15 years ago
I agree completely. Jons voice is great for this song and it sounds very much like the origional, just way heavier. What a great chorus to headbang too! They turned that beat into a rocked out riff. And reck I'm glad you talked about the solo. Since I've never heard a Korn solo before, and the solo sounds like it could have been taken directly from Pink Floyds version, I wasn't sure if Korn actually played it or just transfered that layer into their song. Korn is the modern day Pink Floyd and this song proves why.

KoЯn – Word Up (Cameo cover) Lyrics 15 years ago
KoRn has been my favorite band for 5 years. A friend of mine got me into them, I got everything they already had out, and then bought Untoucahbles and Mirror when they came out. I agree with a lot of what has been said here about bands changing and stuff. I agree woth sadistic sniper, except that maybe KoRn took "Word Up" a little more seriously than he thinks. I mean, keep in mind the techno remix of "Here to Stay" as a bonus track on some certain Untouchable albums, as well as the remix of "Freak on a Leash" on their greatest hits albums. "Alone I Break" kind of has a poppy sound to it as well. I don't think these songs are attempts of KoRn to reach out to a poppy audience looking for cash. Is your average teeny-bobber really gonna buy KoRn's greatest hits album because it as an old-school funk cover on it? I think it is Korn having fun, playing what they feel like covering. There is a lot of hip hop on some Korn songs, and hip hop was a stem off of funk. I wouldn't doubt if "Word Up" was something Korn listened to before they were the band we know and love. Korn is a band that has hardcore dedicated followers, which is their fan base. They don't have the strength in numbers that other bands of similar success may have. If you don't like the covers, and already have the other 17 songs on Greatest Hits on various other albums, then don't buy the CD. Don't lose respect for the best, most innovative band since Pink Floyd. (Btw I hope more of you guys like that cover than "Word Up". They did that beautifully. It sounds a lot like the origional, with a super dose of KoRn heaviness. Rock on)
