Children Of The KoRn
by Korn

Album: Follow The Leader (1998)
  • Features rapper Ice Cube on vocals. Ice Cube also did a track featuring KoRn called "F*** Dying."
  • KoRn considers the "Children of the KoRn" to be their fans. They wrote it about how the parents of the fans of KoRn and Ice Cube and really any loud band don't like the music their children listen to. They just consider it noise and think they're just yelling and cursing all the time and don't know what it's really about. >>

  • Children Of The Corn is the name of a Stephen King novel that was made into a horror movie in 1984.
  • Jonathan Davis explained his lyrical content:

    "In one of my verses, I'm talking about being a kid that's always known as the f---in' town fa--ot. It's funny how things change - how some of these people picked on me and all of a sudden, look who's laughing now, because I'm a big rock star now.

    And in another verse, I talk about all these parents f---in' hating me for what I do, saying I'm corrupting their children, but in turn these parents need to step outside of themselves and really listen to what I'm talking about. Then I think they can understand that they were kids before. They're just really quick to judge me."

  • Zero from Nowhere, NjThis was performed live during the Family Values Tour '98, which to my knowledge was the only time KoRn toured with Ice Cube. If anyone knows otherwise, please comment.
  • Mathew from Port Talbot,wales, United KingdomGlad my parents aren't like this maybe except my mother.
    My dad encourages me listen to music like this.
    This song is epic,heard it years ago.
  • Josh from Meridain, MsI Can relate to this song, my parents thank KoRn is just yelling metal music. But there not they have there on type of music I would say. "A crazy, death, badass metal thing going". KoRn is just awsome.
  • Kelsey from Rustburg, VaI love this song. Me and my older brother are Children of the KoRn and our parents hate us for it. We rebel and they get ticked off... Parents could learn a lesson about why their kids do what they do if they just listened to bands like KoRn.
  • Beau from Mount Gambier, Australiathis song makes me think of the crap i got from my mum
  • Desiree from Powers Lake, Ndthis song is so awesome...its totally right too..kids will rebel if our parents tell us to do something..we absolutaly HATE that!!
  • Shane from Mcgrath, AkThis is pretty cool.
  • Patrick Irvin from Lansdale, PaThis is about OUR generation. the gen X kids. we do what we do. We love our freedoms, and I agree with david, if you hold us back, we will rebel. Parents only hear the music as backround noise to yell at their kids about, but we see it for its true meaning.....
  • Kevin from Indepence, Mo"That's the song that Ice Cube is on Cube came up with the title. I fed off of what he wrote, he was talking about growing up and puberty. Dictating what he can do, like how you gonna tell me how to live and who to f--k? And all this stuff. And I took that and in my stuff I was talking about being a kid always known as the f--kin' town faggot. It's funny how things change. That some of these people picked on me and all of a sudden look who's laughing now. Also in another of the verse I talked about all these parents f--kin hating me for what I do, saying I'm corrupting their children, but in turn these parents need to step outside of themselves and really listen to what I'm talking about. Then I think they can understand that they were kids before. They're just really quick to judge me. All the Children of The Korn are all our Korn fans. All those kids going through that s--t and feeling what I feel."

    we are talking about the song here, not the book.
  • David from Houston, Txi think this is about what can happen if parents are over-protective.kids will rebell
  • Tabs from Spring, TxActually, "Children of the corn" is a short story in one of King's anthologies (*Night Shift* I believe). Very well-written and very fast-paced. Never ever ever ever see the movies, they suck and have nothing to do with King's original story.
  • Lisa from Mckinney, Txchildren of the CORN is one of the best books ever (and movie) and this song is awsome too
