Ox’s Blog: Hump The Covers Off with Korn – One
This coming weekend is the giant Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. Kilo rocker Cory will be out there, he won the flyaway from Tilted Kilt and us a few weeks back. I was at Rock on the Range in 2013 and it was an awesome concert experience. To pay tribute to the upcoming three days of madness let’s do a Korn cover of the Metallica tune One. Both Korn and Metallica will be on the bill at Rock on the Range and I can’t believe I haven’t featured this cover before. The Korn version was initially recorded live for the MTV special Icon: Metallica in 2003. It made it’s way onto Take A Look In The Mirror as a hidden track at the very end of the album. The cover is a little short of the original, probably because MTV didn’t want the whole song take up precious air time even on a show dedicated to the band that they were celebrating because that’s the type of thing MTV did in the 2000’s. Either way the cover is still great, so close your eyes, take a listen, and imagine you are in Columbus to see both bands live.
