Jonathan Davis of Korn names the band’s “worst song ever,” adding that “it’s horrible”

As a musician, you want to be proud of all your songs and album. But, inevitably, there are some songs that you just wish would go away. Even bona fide rock stars have those songs that they’re, well, embarrassed to have their name on.

Jonathan Davis of Korn has plenty of fantastic songs in his catalog, but there’s at least one he doesn’t enjoy hearing at all. In a new interview with Metal Hammer, he answered that tough question of which Korn track is “the worst song ever.”

Metal Hammer’s specific questions was regarding what track Davis wishes the band had never recorded. That’s a tall ask, since Davis had to rack his brain over the past 14 albums out, including their latest, this year’s “Requiem.” As it turns out, he had an instant answer. The song is off 1998’s “Follow the Leader,” which featured fellow rap-rock darlings Limp Bizkit and Fred Durst.

“‘All In The Family’ is the worst song ever. It’s horrible,” Davis told the publication of the debut single that came off “Follow the Leader.”

“We were all drunk in the studio and I was trying to rap. At the time, we were having a good time, but now I just cringe,” he added. That doesn’t mean he has hate from Durst, though. “I’ve got nothing against Fred, it just sucks! We were out of our minds drunk! It shouldn’t have made the record.”

Even though the song was the first single off “Follow the Leader,” the band has pretty much avoided it for most of their career. The only time they played it lived was back in 1998, when it was first released. It’s safe to say that “All in the Family” is a track David would like to see disappear, especially since it features some homophobic lines.
