13 year old King Kamala was pissed that Mama Kamala wouldn't let him go see KoRn with opening acts Disturbed and Trust Company on that same tour in '02!
In retrospect, I should be relieved I was too young to see any numetal concerts. I did go to a Taste of Chaos tour show with an off prime Deftones headlining in '06 but most of the bill was terrible scream.
That was the one, and I loved hearing that live. When they were announced for the Metallica tribute show I knew exactly what they were doing because of that show.
My first concert ever was seeing Korn at Roseland Ballroom in 1996. My mom is an over protective Jewish mother and had to go with me. That was an interesting site, having her go to a Korn show (with rap group The Pharcyde opening). She likes a lot of newer music, at least at the time, so she didn't mind Korn that much. We also went to The Offspring later that year and Family Values. We both ended up getting a contact high at that show.
Not a bad hard rock song but I kept waiting for a catchy hook since the 'chorus' of the song wasn't doing it for me and the hook never really came. Just a straight ahead rock song although Kroeger's vocals still annoy me.

This article on the 20th Anniversary of Creed's Human Clay starts with the author getting punched in the face for making fun of someone for comparing Creed to Led Zeppelin. It rocks IIRC.
Even give STP's staggering streak of horrible luck in the past decade (mostly their most notable member being dead then his famous replacement also dying), it seems like they deserve better than playing second fiddle to Nickelback.
I still maintain that the first 3DD record was one of the last good mainstream rock albums ("Loser" is a damn good rock radio track) HOWEVER the band has always waved the banner of MAGA chud nonsense (they ARE from Mississippi after all) so this isn't surprising.
Five Finger Death Punch sure got people talking with the release of their controversial new music video for "Living the Dream." The video features many metaphors, some perhaps too deep for the naked eye, and the most controversial scene, features a woman, portrayed as an elitist with a pin that says
