Korn Covers Backstreet Boys’ “I Want It That Way” In New TikTok
Korn technically offers an all-male lineup, but they’re a far cry from anything typically associated with boy band music of the late 90s and early 2000s. The era of Justin Timberlake and NSYNC was filled with teenagers singing sweet lyrics about love and romance. Korn, on the other hand, wrote music for those in different parts of life.
Although many fans of nostalgic 2000s music are now in their 20s and 30s, Korn’s music has always been popular with teens and adults alike. Their songs address topics like depression, drug addiction, abuse, and other themes that are the opposite of the themes you may have heard in the songs of dreamy boy bands of the era.
That’s why fans are loving Korn’s new cover of “I Want It That Way”, originally performed by NSYNC. The cover was posted on the band’s TikTok channel, and the comments are filled with humorous but heartfelt messages from fans who grew up listening to both Korn and NSYNC, with a user with the username Elihal calling out the cover. 24-second acapella “When my two personalities collide on Spotify.
