November 16, 1999. Korn released the timeless classic “Issues.” It instantly became my favorite Korn album. This was first album that I owned that I could listen to from start to finish. It’s ironic it falls on the same day as my mother’s birthday. Or as ironic as “Life Is Peachy” falls on my grandmother’s birthday October 15th. Without them, I wouldn’t exist. Almost as if I was destined to be into Korn. As far as Metal goes, they are my gateway band after all. Haha.
