Back in 2015, two heavy titans you may have heard of (Korn and Slipknot) embarked together on the ‘Prepare for Hell’ Tour.

At the London Wembley Arena stop of the tour, members from both bands converged on stage for a raucous cover of Beastie Boys’ ‘Sabotage‘ – the now classic banger from the 1994 album, Ill Communication.

The cover makes all the sense in the world as Beastie Boys can certainly be credited (while likely unintentionally) as an influence for the nu-metal sound that would emerge a few short years later.

Watch the pro-shot footage below. By the way, another Korn & Slipknot co-headline tour is something we certainly wouldn’t be mad at. One can hope, right?


Luckily, both Slipknot and Korn have returned to live touring and have a bunch of dates coming up over the months ahead. Check out the tour dates for both bands below after a few other recent stories you might enjoy.
