The Best Bands Like Korn

April 4, 2020 412 votes 52 voters 1.7k views25 items

Looking for more rock bands like KoRn? You've come to the right place. Thanks to classic hit songs like "Freak on a Leash," KoRn is one of the best-known nu metal groups from the '90s and 2000s, but there are many other great bands who share a similar sound and are just (or almost) as good. 

Slipknot, Seether, and Linkin Park are among the top bands that are often considered to be related artists to, while acts like Disturbed, System Of A Down, and Gojira also notably sound similar to the group.  

Undeniably, KoRn has had a massive influence on the nu metal and alternative metal genres, inspiring both their contemporaries and new bands today. And, while there are a lot of awesome groups and artists that sound like the legends behind "Coming Undone," it's up to you to decide which are the best of the best. Vote up the bands you'd be most likely to recommend to people who are fans of KoRn, and be sure to add any that you feel we might have missed.
