Yeah, you read the title right – Korn cover The Backstreet Boys song “I Want It That Way.”

Footage of this cover comes from the Korn TikTok account, where the guys all get together and sing the classic 1999 pop banger. For those unfamiliar, The Backstreet Boys were a pop boy band that exploded in popularity in the ’90s and early 2000s.

Acts like The Backstreet Boys and Korn dominated the music landscape during that time, so it is hilarious and fantastic for this musical fusion to take place.

You can check out Korn covering The Backstreet Boys song “I Want It That Way” below:

What are your thoughts on this Backstreet Boys cover? We’d be down to hear a full version of the song. Maybe a new version with a nu metal spin. Also, you may have noticed something interesting about the header image for this article.

From the band’s outfits, to the background, to the font used to reference the band’s new album Requiem – all that art direction is meant to reference the 1999 Backstreet Boys album Millennium.

It looks like this cover was filmed during the creation of the most recent Korn music video, “Worst Is On Its Way,” which you can check out below.
