10 Best Hard Rock Albums Of The 90s

9. Follow The Leader - Korn

Pantera VDOP
Nu Metal

Korn were one of the pioneers of the Nu-Metal wave and a band that have never really been bettered within the genre. Follow the Leader was their third album, released in 1998, and was the one that really saw them peg down their signature sound and propelled them to the lofty heights of success they reached.

Each song is pushed along with crunching basslines and catchy riffs and really sets the scene for everything that Nu-Metal was to become. Got the Life and Freak on a Leash are the two best known tracks from the album of course (and with good reason, they're fantastically put together examples of Korn at their best) but the rest of the album holds up just as strongly.

Jonathan Davis is one of the most distinct voices in rock and it feels as if the band around him perfectly caters to that fact. The music fits with the voice in front of it and never lets up. It is an album that will have your neck twisted and sore from involuntarily thrashing it up and down. It is Korn's masterpiece and rightfully deserves a spot on this list.
