Korn brought something entirely new to the world of metal in 1994 with their self-titled debut album. Its follow-up, Life Is Peachy, followed a similar sound and format as its predecessor, and the band knew they had to make a shift somewhere if they were going to last.
They exceeded their goals far beyond their expectations when they released Follow the Leader in 1998. It was their first No. 1 album on the Billboard 200, and the singles "Got the Life" and "Freak on a Leash" were massive. If Korn paved the way for nu-metal, Follow the Leader cemented it, catapulting Jonathan Davis, Brian "Head" Welch, James "Munky" Shaffer, Reginald "Fieldy" Arvizu and David Silveria into superstardom that they never thought possible.
