The band has sold around 50 million worldwide with eleven of the band's official releases which have peaked in the top ten of the Billboard 200, eight of which have peaked in the top five.[ Korn’s also won two Grammy Awards out of seven nominations.
A special treat this time for Korn aficionados on this 2013 tour as in early 2005 “Head” Welch had announced that he would be quitting the band. In front of a crowd of 10,000, in three services at Valley Bible Fellowship in Bakersfield, California, Welch said: "I was addicted to methamphetamines and tried everything ... rehab, stuff on the Internet, but nothing helped me kick it. I was trying on my own to quit and couldn't do it. I wanted to die. No one knew what I was going through. I could not quit. Church was my last shot. I would sit in church high [on drugs]. I would wonder why people would go up to the front after the service. But one day it was for me. I said [to God], 'Show me how to quit”. Welch made an official return to the band as of January 2013 and also in time for the band’s eleventh studio album (indeed an appropriate place for Welch to play as St. Anthony just happens to also be the patron saint of Padua).
The band’s influences? Many, such as Metallica, Nirvana, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Primus, Slayer and Rage Against the Machine, just to name a few.
