Yes, amazingly, Korn will be featured tonight. But that's not the point, so no "omg korn suckss"

The point i'm getting at is, I don't remember the last time a MTV Unplugged sement was premiered on MTV, and not MTV2 or MTV Hits, it had really dissapointed me, but i'm incredibly excited that there bringing it back, I can only pray for good ratings, because maybe, just maybe, MTV will get the ****ing hint, and maybe, MTV will keep this series going.

Your thoughts?

i dont like korn but i saw a preview of it and it sounds pretty cool, mostly because of the double basses and cellos and stuff. also, that rabbit mask looks pretty cool.
The trouble with nude dancing is that not everything stops moving when the music does.

Meh, there was actual GOOD popular artists to choose from for the early Unplugged.

I mean, CLAPTON started it, and what an amazing show that was. "Layla (Unplugged)"= Orgasm.

Nirvana did okay for acoustic, Alice in Chains, etc.

Todays artists in Unplugged? Fall Out Boy, MCR, *insert emo, mainstream, or other band that is insanely popular*.

The only one I would be at least interested in seeing is RHCP, because we all know it's going to happen sometime.

for all the naysayers of Korn.

yes it would be horrible, except.

they have dozens of extra musicians:
orchestra
saws
glass harmonicas
extra guitarists.
percussion(most notably, a japanese taiko drum section in "throw me away")
Featuring, Robert Smith and Amy Lee.(boo for amy)
and ALOT more.

it sounds pretty amazing.

+1. Maybe even Megadeth or Gun's N' Roses. Muse or Jimmy Eat World...those would be amazing.

Kinda random, but on SNL last year MCR was on and they a soft, unplugged type song, and the lead guy took the bass from the bassist, rhythm played rhythm, and stuck the bass player with a temberine (sp?).

haha

He got so owned by his own band. "You're not good enough for this song, n00b. Take the ****ing tamberine.".

I don't know, all of their music's a little on the faster side, and faster songs sound kinda weird on guitar unless you do it right.

Am I the only one who doesn't like unplugged shows?

I can't stand them, especially when good songs are destroyed by an acoustic guitar (Symphony Of Destruction).

the unplugged is going to be broadcasted next wednesday

i've seen a few vids from it, the arrangements on the songs make them not so bad

No, it doesn't, because Korn are simply not an acoustic band. I've seen clips of it, and it doesn't work. The reason why there's all these extra musicians? Imagine your average Korn riff on an acoustic... it sounds shit. That's because that riff was made solely for electric guitar.

And meh, I don't care for MTV Unplugged. MTV is gonna let crappy bands play, and I didn't care for it to begin with.

Theres not a single riff that hasn't changed in a certain way. The arrangements are amazing. It makes it sound much better then you could imagine, although not the greatest ever.

Incubus would be nice. I've always been a fan, and "Stellar" might sound pretty good on acoustic....hmmm....

This is going to be intertaining. I'm for sure going to watch it (Amy Lee's in it of course I am) and from what I've seen it looks pretty good. I'll just watch Bam until it comes on.

My music history teacher saw at least part of it last night on some late show. He said the people(or person) who played the saw was amazing. Also, the taiko drummers were hidden in the dark till their part of the song.

Alice in Chains was my absolute favorite Unplugged performance. I don't think anyone would ever top them, in my eyes.

If KoRn releases this on CD, I'll most likely buy it. I love many nu metal bands, and I'm not ashamed.

Yeah, I guess. I was just pointing out, that I had actually heard some of the stuff and it really wasn't that great, that's all. I wasn't judging simply on prior experiences with Korn.

yes they performed on Leno last night.

and The Taiko people weren't hidden. It's Leno, the stage isn't THAT big.

And Clint Lowery and Terry Bozzio, made there first appearance with Korn.
