They were first called L.A.P.D., which stood for
'Love and Peace Dude', and then later 'Laughing as People Die'
They were also briefly known as Creep.
They reformed as Korn after adding Jonathon Davis.
When thinking of the new name, someone suggested "corn", but the band rejected it.
James Shaffer had the idea to spell the name with a "K" instead of a "C", and a backwards "R",
so the band's name would appear as "Koᴙn".
The logo was designed by Jonathan Davis.
David Silveria explained: "The music makes the name, because Korn's a dumb name. But
once we get established, it makes the name cool."
Jonathan Davis lead vocals, bagpipes

I'd be a producer. I produced a band "Videodrone" on Elementree Records. And I've been doing remixes. I did a remix for Trik Turner.
Some producers write songs for bands, but we write our own music, so the producer has nothing to do with that.
Videos? Videos are important because millions of people watch TV and we can only tour and play so many places. But if you've got a video, then you're able to air it and millions and millions of people will see it.
