I can't stop listening to KoRn's new album, "The Paradigm Shift"! This album is frigging awesome! Anyone that says KoRn is dead can choke on their dumbass opinions. Love my favorite band of all time!!! They're still the fucking best, even to this day! Long time fan for 18 years, and counting. Keep up the incredible job, guys! True fans still love you no matter what. =]

    I would have LOVED to have gone to Family Values 1998, but I didn't start going to concerts till 2000 (around 12-13 years old)! That was a cool tour. I still have my Family Values '98 CD, and I still hear it every once and awhile. Oh shit, I would have want to knock that person out if they were on top of me like that, but I wouldn't have want to leave either if I got hurt until I saw KoRn too lol. NO WAY, YOU WERE IN "FAITH" VIDEO??? That's totally awesome! You guys were doing the circle pit, that what it was lol. By the way, speaking of Limp Bizkit, I don't know why but I used to love them. But I grew out of them after awhile. The last album I bought of theirs was their 2003 "Results May Vary" album. That was the last time I ever liked them. Yeah, I totally get you. You never know what kind of people are in the crowd, especially for someone like her. I wouldn't have want to leave her alone either. My sisters and I always get seats because we want to be comfortable where we could rock out at the same time. Plus, we want to watch the show, so we don't mosh (I'm the only one that's ever moshed before, they haven't) and also we're short and every time we go to a show where we have to stand, there's ALWAYS some tall dude or dudes in front of us lol. And there have been times where they don't give a shit if they're blocking people who can't see, especially if they haven't been there as long as we have. We had that incident like that back in August where we were at an outdoors concert (we went to the Carnival of Madness´╗┐ tour with Shinedown, Sevendust, In This Moment, Skillet, and We As Human) and we were there ALL DAY in the same spot for most of the time, then out of nowhere these assholes come right in front of us and blocked every thing! And we know they just got there to see the last band, which was Shinedown. We were so pissed, we made sure they heard us, but they still didn't give a fuck. That's the rudest shit ever! Anyways, that's cool! You think I could see your tattoo? I love seeing others tattoos, especially when it comes to fan tattoos. At least you STILL have a rock station lol! Mine was overtaken by crap. Don't get me wrong, I love Pearl Jam, but if they played the same songs over and over, I'd get pretty pissed too. Yeah, I don't listen to the radio anymore, so I depend on my CDs, my MP3 player, Pandora, and iHeart Radio. Oh, I know Bring Me The Horizon, they're pretty good. I think my sister has one of their CDs. I use to like Taproot, I even seen them once or twice a long time ago. Skillet is a good band, saw them 2 or 3 times. Oh, I forgot to had Mnemic to my list lol. And I like Sybreed too, we have one of their albums. I love In This Moment, and they're awesome live. I've seen them 3 times. Yeah, it's so hard to remember so many bands you like and then try to list them all lol.

    HAHA! You just made me double check my concert tickets, and yeah, I save all my concert tickets that I've ever been to lol. Okay, we both seem to have gotten a little confused. First it was "The Tour with No Name" tour and then the "Pop Sux Tour 2002", and I went to both of those shows because I still have both tickets from those tours. But BOTH those tours were part of the "Untouchables Tour". So it was basically 2 tours (2 parts) in one, which means we were right that we went to the "The Untouchables Tour". There, I solved the problem lol. The "Sick and Twisted Tour" was before the "Untouchables Tour" because the "Sick and Twisted Tour" was in support of KoRn's 4th album, 'Issues'. Unfortunately I didn't go to that tour. =/ I just looked it up and it says Rob Zombie wasn't doing that tour, but his brother's band Powerman 5000 was. Haha, great minds think alike! And yes, Jonathan's mic stand tattoo on the arm would look so awesome! Omg, I've always wanted his HIV smiley signature on me! That's so cool you have it. How long ago did you get it? Where on you did you get it on, and is the tattoo big or small? If I were to ever get it I'd probably would want a small one, depending where I would want to place it. Most likely on my arm/wrist area somewhere. Personally, if I had a boyfriend who wanted to go mosh while I wanted to stay back and watch the bands and sing along, I'd let him go if he wanted to. I wouldn't be pissed because I would want him to go have fun in the pit. Who am I to say no. As long as he would at some point come back and enjoy the rest of the show with me, I'd be okay with that lol. I LOVE when they would all start to headbang together too, it's just awesome! I've always loved seeing that, even till this day. When they do that, it gets me even more pumped lol. When I went to see them back in May of this year, somehow I captured a photo of them headbanging at the same time at the right time; it's one of my favorite pictures I took. This is the picture - http://oi42.tinypic.com/6id93d.jpg
    I totally get what you mean for you to have a soft spot for Green Day. This is why I like old school Green Day, even though I can't say I'm a fan. I just like their old stuff. I love their classic songs like "Basket Case" too, it's one of my favorites. Even the song "Time of Your Life" and "Welcome to Paradise". Haha, I did always like when Billie Joe dyed his hair different colors, I always thought it was cool. For some damn reason I can't remember what band I first started listening to. I got influenced by listening to my (which was once awesome) local rock radio station at the time (they got rid of it a couple years back and turned it into another one of those shitty radio stations that plays the same crap over and over on every other station, and this is why I don't listen to radio anymore). I was 5 or 6 when I got into metal and rock, so I can't really recall much. But I think it was Metallica, and I think it was the song "One" because, for as long as I can remember, that has ALWAYS been my favorite Metallica song ever. Oh, me too! I love seeing KoRn live, they've always been my most favorite band, but I also love seeing other bands as well. It's like, you can't just see only 1 band because you know you like other bands too. I have a lot of favorite bands lol! I've give you a somewhat brief list and you do the same, and if you mention some I didn't I'll let you know. Okay, other than KoRn...
    (Not really in any order) Lamb of God, Slipknot, Stone Sour, Shinedown, Pantera, Killswitch Engage, All That Remains, Trivium, Avenged Sevenfold, Disturbed, Device, Metallica, Nine Inch Nails, In This Moment, Three Days Grace, Five Finger Death Punch, Tool, Godsmack, Alice In Chains, Guns N' Roses, Mudvayne, Lacuna Coil, Marilyn Manson, Staind, Led Zeppelin, Pearl Jam, Love and Death, Sevendust, Shadows Fall, In Flames, AC/DC, Static-X, Bullet For My Valentine, Apocalyptica, Caliban, System of a Down, Stone Temple Pilots, Hatebreed, Pink Floyd, Black Sabbath, Ozzy, Bush, Atreyu, A Perfect Circle, Alter Bridge, God Forbid, Ill Nino, Papa Roach, Our Lady Peace, Nirvana, Machine Head, Breaking Benjamin, Red, White Zombie/Rob Zombie, Skillet, Linkin Park, Demon Hunter, Soilwork, Mastodon - just to name a few lol.
    I know I'm missing a bunch of others, but that's what comes to mind. Your turn! =]

    I never liked Blink-182. With Green Day, I only liked their really old stuff, but still not of fan of theirs either. But I totally get you. This is why Green Day is still around while Blink-182 isn't, who knows what happened to them. Exactly, KoRn is one of those bands that were MEANT to stuck around for so many years and not fade away like so many other bands. That's a lot of people. They're not a fan of a certain band, but once they see them live and see how truly amazing they are, they instantly become a fan. That's how it is with a lot of other stuff. For example, a TV show. My most favorite show EVER is Supernatural. Many people watch it once and they're a fan for life. That show has been around since 2005 and still going (currently on their 9th season), and I'm still a HUGE, OBSESSED fan till this day. I know a friend of mine that never watched it and refused to, for some reason. A couple of weeks ago I found out that he LOVES the show now and couldn't stop watching, he became addicted to it; obsessed lol. And that's how it is with bands. One hit and you're hooked! I never crowd surfed, but it's cool seeing others do it. And really?? I went to the same Untouchables Tour too when I was 13! I think the one I went to was in NY. When 'Untouchables' came out, just like every KoRn album, I couldn't stop listening to it either. Love that CD too! Yes, right around the 'Untouchables' album came out, I remember seeing Jonathan's microphone stand for the first time! I LOVE his mic stand, she's so badass and so cool! He calls it "The Bitch" lol. For a long time I wanted his mic stand as a tattoo on my arm, that's how awesome it is lol.

    i Remember going to a Concert One Time with my then Girlfriend to see Green Day and Blink 182.. and this was a Perfect Example of how you can tell Whether or Not Bands were Really "Meant" to do what they do.. Blink 182 was Really Popular at the Time and Everybody Loved them, but they came on and Sucked pretty bad.. meanwhile, Green Day was AWESOME, they nearly blew Blink 182 off the Stage.. so you could tell what Band was the Fad and what Band was Truly Great!! you could tell Pretty Easily that Green Day was "Meant" for that and that Blink 182 was just a Fad!.. that's like what it is with KoRn, when you see them Live, you can tell that they are Truly "MEANT FOR THIS"... i used to know some People who really didn't like KoRn, but when they saw them live, they were Amazed at how Good they were!! i personally love "Crowd Surfing".. i did not Crowd Surf during the Last Show, but i Remember Crowd Surfing during the Untouchables Tour to the song "Thoughtless", ohh man, it's one of my Great Memories of KoRn!.. don't know Why but i LOVED the Untouchables cd, and when it came out, i Listened to that cd for like 6 months straight, NON STOP!.. i just Loved that cd soo much.. and then that was when J Davis first got his Microphone (the silver girl) and that was like the Coolest thing on the Planet

    The only people I knew that listened to KoRn were my sisters, which they still do. I had a friend or two, but they were more occasional listeners, I guess I would say. Exactly, at their shows we're all a big family because you know they're there for KoRn! Any KoRn concert I've been to, I'd get chills every time the band would walk out on stage, it's really unreal, but I love it every time! Lol, I just got goosebumps just talking about it too! I love moshing, though it's been awhile since I've moshed, but I personally love watching bands (in this case KoRn) perform instead while I sing along to every song (unless it was a new song). I enjoy myself more watching the band(s) rock out. But I love watching others mosh, especially when the pit gets huge lol. If I could, I would have gone to Sacramento, California to see them along with other bands (which I believe I liked most of them) to Monster Energy Aftershock Festival in September. That would have been a badass concert to see! I've noticed California seems to have the best shows sometimes lol. Exactly, they'll eventually come back in our areas, and I'll make sure to be there! I hope they come back soon, I've been experiencing KoRn withdrawal from not seeing them live lol.

    i never really had any KoRn friends either, used to have a couple but not anymore.. but this is Why it is Unbelievable at the Concert.. because it's like a Family and everyone their Loves KoRn!.. especially when they First come on Stage.. i'll be in the Mosh Pit and everyone will be screaming KORN, and then Jonathan Davis walks out, it is just Unreal, im almost getting Goosebumps just thinking about it lol!.. and there is usually some Big ASS Dudes in the Mosh Pit, and even some Chicks have the balls to go in it too!.. last time, these two girls started Punching each other and the Security came and got them lol.. the Farthest i ever drove to see KoRn was 4 hours away at Penn St. University.. and if they come anywhere by Pittsburgh, Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati, or Philadelphia, i can see them.. don't know when there coming back but they are always playing so they will be back this way soon!!

    Oh, awesome, you went to the same tour as I did! I went to the the following Wednesday show on May 22th in The Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, NJ. Aww, that sucks you missed Love and Death! I honestly never heard their music before until I went to see them, and I was impressed. I really enjoyed them live! It got me to listen to them more. It has happened to me where me and my siblings have gotten lost going to a concert, and we happen to miss the first band. Usually it's a band we could care less about, but there's been moments where it's a band I want to see and we'll either end up missing their performance all together or some of it. But we try to not miss the first band that goes on, especially if it's a band we want to see. I knew Love and Death were going to go first, only because I knew Device and their music first lol. Love and Death seem to be touring with KoRn all the time, so I'm sure the next time you go see KoRn, you'll see Love and Death too. =] Speaking of, I want to go see KoRn again!!! I wanted to go see them last month (I think it was), but no one wanted to go. =/ And I can't go on my own because I'll just get lost, period lol. Plus, I like going to concerts with others because it's more fun that way. But it reminds me of back in the day, I missed out on so many of their tours because it seemed like I was the only one who wanted to go. I was only a kid back then, so I couldn't do anything about it.
