A Different World
by Korn

Album: The Serenity of Suffering (2016)
  • This features Corey Taylor as a guest vocalist. However the track wasn't written with the Slipknot and Stone Sour frontman in mind. Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer explained on the KLOS radio show hosted by Full Metal Jackie:

    "We wrote the song… It was one of the first songs that we wrote [for The Serenity of Suffering]. And it just has this cool, bouncing, bending riff, and it definitely reminds me of something, like Untouchables era. But there was this huge bridge section that it was this wide-open spot… Nick has worked with Stone Sour before — Nick Raskulinecz, the guy that produced the record. He basically picked up the phone and [asked Corey], 'Hey, would you wanna sing on Korn's record?' And Corey was, like, 'Yeah, man.' He was really into it.
    So he came down… I think he listened to, like, three tracks, and he narrowed it down to this one song that he was feeling. And it came out killer." (Transcribed by Blabbermouth).
  • Korn vocalist Jonathan Davis liked the way Taylor laid down his vocals. "He starts creeping in underneath the song," Davis said. "You can start slowly hearing his voice under mine, and it crescendos up into the middle part where he sings, and then it's just full-on at the end, so the song came out great."
