A RANDOM THOUGHT ABOUT KORN’S LOGO
So yesterday I posted the Completely Unreadable Band Logo of the Week, as I’m prone to do, and readers’ entries started pouring into my inbox, as was bound to happen.
And someone guessed that the band logo in question belonged to Korn.
At least once a week, someone guesses “Korn” or “Slipknot” or “Atreyu.” This baffles me to no end for the following reasons:
- Korn, Slipknkot, and Atreyu all have very readable logos.
- Presumably the people who guess these bands are familiar with their respective logos and should therefore feel pretty confident that, no, that logo they are currently trying to read does not belong to Korn, Slipknot, or Atreyu.
ANYWAY, this all got me thinking about Korn’s logo, and how monumentally stupid and un-metal it is. I mean, it has a backwards letter “r.” You know who else uses a backwards letter “r?”
So, there you have it. A completely random thought about Korn’s logo.
