Alive
by Korn

Album: Take A Look In The Mirror (2003)
  • One of the first songs KoRn ever made, this was originally a track on a demo tape from around 1993-94 before KoRn released their first album. Head, who is one of KoRn's guitarists, sang lead on the original.
  • The chorus melody was used to make the song "Need To," which KoRn released on their self-titled album. This caused some fans to bash "Alive" for being a rehash, while it was really the other way around.
  • The Take a Look in the Mirror album saw KoRn going back to the style of their earlier CD's. This song was used as a basis for the album. >>

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjNo, Nathan, pretty sure it's Jon saying/growling "Alive", and I think Head does the background vocals during the chorus.
  • Nathan Ritz from Marengo , InJoey, its not just a weird noise, hes saying alive, and no its the lead guitarist
  • Joey from Cincinnati, Ohis it Jon that is making that weird noise before the chorus in this song??

  • Jimmy from Modesto, CaReally good song by one of my favorite band, Korn.
  • Kurt from Unity, MeNot certain on this but i think that Jon is suggesting that he survived his troubled childhood and, even though hes traumatized he will live.
