A pioneering force of the nu-metal movement, Korn was formed in Bakersfield, California in 1993 when three former members of the funk metal band L.A.P.D. (Love And Peace Dude, later Laughing As People Die) decided to embark on a new project. The group currently consists of founding members Jonathan Davis (vocals, bagpipes), James "Munky" Shaffer (guitar), Brian "Head" Welch (guitar, backing vocals), and Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu (bass), as well as Ray Luzier (drums), who replaced the band's original drummer and founding member, David Silveria in 2007. After two moderately successful releases, the band's 1998 breakthrough album, Follow the Leader, was a huge mainstream hit, reaching the top spot on the Billboard 200, as did their 1999 follow-up, Issues. The group's unique mixture of funk, metal, hip hop and grunge, combined with frank and explicit lyrics dealing with a variety of dark and introspective themes, influenced an entire genre of music, and its musical legacy can be heard in the music of many subsequent bands. Korn's first seven albums have all been certified platinum or higher by the RIAA, and 12 of them have hit the top 10 of the Billboard 200, with eight of the reaching the top 5 of the chart. To date, the band has won two Grammy Awards from eight nominations, two MTV Video Music Awards out of 11 nominations, among other awards and accolades. The group's latest album is 2019's The Nothing.
