    22 years ago today, in a simpler time known as 1999, Korn absolutely crushed their appearance on South Park. 

    A meeting of two of the biggest counter-cultural forces of the era, Korn's guest-starring turn in this Halloween themed episode of South Park, has lingered long in the memory of Gen-X and elder Millenial Maniacs. 

    In the episode, Korn (voicing themselves) accept an offer to play a festival in South Park called Halloween Haunt.  However, someone or something is out to stop the concert from happening (boo!) and that's when Korn goes full Scooby-Doo!  That's right, Korn and their 1999 dialogue go on the hunt for the ghosts (or as it turns out clergyman) responsible for the disruption.  It's a quality bit of satire that makes some inspired references to the efforts of conservative church groups repeated witch-hunt style campaigns to ban heavy metal and/or blame it for the prevalence of social violence. 

    Jonathon Davis busts out some killer lines and South Park make the most obvious site-gag in history, Korn turning into different types of actual corn, somehow work. Hilarity ensues throughout the entire episode and dated dialogue aside this episode and its double-layered satire still hold up well today! 

    Watch the animated Korn performing Falling Away From Me at Halloween Haunt, to the delight of the people of South Park below.
