The 1998 Korn album Follow The Leader contains the one song band frontman Jonathan Davis wishes Korn never recorded. In a conversation with Metal Hammer, Davis talks about the track he feels is “horrible.”
Of all the Follow The Leader songs, Davis has some strong words to say about “All In The Family.” The song features Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst. Per Davis’ words, he shares his feelings about this song while Korn recorded Follow The Leader:
“All In The Family is the worst song ever. It’s horrible. We were all drunk in the studio and I was trying to rap. At the time, we were having a good time, but now I just cringe. I’ve got nothing against Fred, it just sucks! We were out of our minds drunk! It shouldn’t have made the record.”
The Korn album Follow The Leader has been certified five times platinum and a staple of the nu metal genre. Follow The Leader is the band’s third studio album, released in 1998 and features some of Korn’s biggest hits like “Freak On A Leash” and “Got the Life.” Ironically, while Davis may not be a fan of “All In The Family,” there is a song off of Follow The Leader he does recommend to newcomers of the band.

Davis also spoke with Metal Hammer about his work on the film, The Queen Of The Damned. In a retrospective of the film, Davis shared how he “became a vampire;” referring to the film’s protagonist, Davis shared, “I had to become Lestat, and I read the books, and wrote lyrics about being a fucking 400-year-old vampire, and it was so fucking fun.”
As of this past February, Korn released their 14th studio album, Requiem.
