  • Features Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit with additional drums by Justin Walden. KoRn played this live with Fred at the Family Values concerts.
  • KoRn lead singer Jon Davis and Fred Durst thought it would be funny if they put out a track where they just shoot insults back and forth at each other, like a good old schoolyard brawl. This was the result. Davis recalled:

    "Fred was at the studio one day after a Korn-TV taping, and we said, 'Let's do a song together. Hey, man, let's go back and forth and rip on each other like an old-school battle.' I don't know who's idea it was. I can't remember if it was mine, or Fieldy's, or Fred's, but we came up with the idea and we started writing and we worked on it together. I even came up with some bags on myself for Fred to say. It was all in good-natured fun."
  • Two remixes of this song were made, the "Clark World Mix" (mixed by Clark Kent) and the "Sowing the Beats Mix" (mixed by Level X). Some releases of the Follow the LeadeR album came with an additional CD with these 2 tracks on them. >>

  • The song was originally intended for B-Real (of Cypress Hill) but it didn't work out as his record label wouldn't let him record it.

  • Sandra from Helsingborg/swedenOnly john wrote this? Haha...

    Very good song. xD
  • Lauren from Boynton Beach, FlHaha. This song never fails to crack me up. I love the insults. I think this is a very creative song. Who else thought to have two people sling insults at each other and make it a song? I also like how the music changes for each person talking at the time. I always loved Davis' little comments in the back of Fred's insults. "My d*ck is bigger than yours... My band is bigger than yours" two of the biggest subjects boys in bands can insult each other about.
  • Mike from Riverside, Cajon davis wrote all the lyrics. not him and fred.
  • Zac from Oklahoma City, OkMan. I love this song. It's most likely my favorite. KoRn rocks. I must admit though, this band raised my appreciation of Fred Durst
  • Jake from Houston, TxI just saw the Family Values tour DVD today. Everytime they preform it live, one band f**ks with the other like in 98 on Halloween.
  • Jake from Houston, Tx"Fred Durst need to rehearse, needs to reverse what he's sayin"

    Best line in the whole damn song.
  • Rachel from Raleigh, NcI love this song! It is soo funny! I just can't stop laughing!
  • Jen from Melbourne, FlI love when they dis each other's band names like "Korn on the cob" and "Limp Dick". The lyrics are so cool.
