MACHINE HEAD frontman Robb Flynn's latest installment of his online blog, "The General Journals: Diary Of A Frontman... And Other Ramblings", reads as follows: "Most of my favorite records weren't #1. Because being #1 often means playing to the lowest common denominator. It means dumbing your music down to such a level that every soccer mom and mini-van driving dad can enjoy it as it plays in the background. That said, there have been some exceptional, authentic records that came in at #1, but it's very rare. To me, 95% of the time it means watered down music. "So I started researching it, fucking-around-on-the-Internet, and man, there are a lot of records, surprising records, that never got to #1 here in the U.S. I was gobsmacked considering the importance of the music. "Here's a list of my favorite albums that DIDN'T chart at #1 and never got to #1 on the U.S. charts: ('peaked at' refers to the highest position it got to, not what it 'debuted at' which many times was much lower) * Back In Black (peaked at #4, over 22 million sold in the U.S.) * Master Of Puppets (charted #128, peaked at #29, certified gold a year later, 6 million sold in the U.S. to date) * Ride The Lightning * Vulgar Display Of Power (peaked at #44, 2.7 million in the U.S. to date) * ...And Justice For All * Reign In Blood (peaked at #94, six years later certified gold) * Seasons In The Abyss (peaked at #57, four years later certified gold) * Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?! * Disintegration * Korn (debut) * Revolutionary Vol. 2 * Antichrist Superstar * The End Of Heartache * Hellbilly Deluxe * Never Mind The Bullocks...Here's The Sex Pistols * Among The Living * Dirt (peaked at #9) * Facelift * Feel The Darkness * Chaos A.D. * Straight Outta Compton * A Rush Of Blood To The Head * Songs For The Deaf * Paranoid (peaked at #23) * Masters Of Reality * It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back * Sabbath Bloody Sabbath * Appetite For Destruction (debuted at #182, and took over a year to eventually get to #1) * The Real Thing (didn't even enter the charts until 8 months after release, peaked at #11) * As The Palaces Burn * Slipknot (debut) * Led Zeppelin IV (peaked at #2, yep, the album with 'Stairway To Heaven' never went to #1, over 23 million sold in the U.S.) "That's right, read that again. The album with 'Stairway To Heaven', one of the biggest rock songs of all time, from one of the biggest rock records of all time, by one of the biggest rock bands of all time, never got to the top of the charts in the U.S. with 'Led Zeppelin – IV'. That is fuckin' crazy to me!? "And #1 doesn't mean great album, or long-term success. Let's not forget that back in 2001 rap-rockers CRAZY TOWN had the #1 single in-the-world (!?) with 'Butterfly' and sold 1.5 million records in the U.S., did 2 Ozzfests, and was managed by Q-Prime (METALLICA and RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS management) for a minute. Huh!? "There have been a few records that have gone to #1 that were great, heavy, authentic metal albums. Probably the finest example is PANTERA's 'Far Beyond Driven', a record so brutal and uncompromising it's shocking it did what it did. As far as rap records go, EMINEM's 'The Marshall Mathers' LP is by far the most extreme record lyrically to ever go #1, songs about killing his wife, (and well, everyone) drinking, drugs, sodomizing journalists, LOL! (1.7 million sold in its first WEEK alone, 10 million to date). METALLICA's The Black album also a fine record, though there was an obvious conscious decision to slow down, and be more accessible. It worked on every level imaginable. "We're finishing up writing our new record. We have 6 songs done, and 2 half-songs that feel like they're going somewhere. "From time to time, you wonder where things will end up or chart, but it never really comes on our radar. It can't, it dilutes the priority: authenticity. "We've never tried to write a #1 album in our lives. The world is to

KORN was inducted into Guitar Center's RockWalk on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, California on Tuesday, October 8, the same day that the band released its 11th album, "The Paradigm Shift". A video report on yesterday's ceremony — courtesy of Press Association — can be seen below. KORN frontman Jonathan Davis said, "When you look at the names of the other people inducted here all you can say is 'Wow!' What an honor!" KORN guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer added, "When we started out, we were five guys in a garage with a dream. I'd like to think we tried our best to create some great music and an innovative sound but to be honest we are truly humbled to be included here." RockWalk chairman Dave Weiderman said, "KORN is about as innovative and influential as they come. They have been purveyors of metal's progression since their formation, and are even credited with creating the nu metal subgenre. For these reasons, and many more, KORN is exactly the type of band the RockWalk is here to honor." The Pulse Of Radio asked Welch what the most important thing would be that he would advise young musicians about being in a rock band. "You've got to get it in your head and your heart right now that you being this musician, it's not for you. It's for the fans," he said. "If you want to go out there and play onstage for a living, you are giving your life for your fans. And it's not about them worshiping you, it's about you giving a gift to them that they can appreciate. And once you make it about you, you're gonna start to shake and you're gonna break down and fall." KORN and ROB ZOMBIE will co-headline the "Night Of The Living Dreads" tour this fall. The 17-date run begins on November 3 in Reno, Nevada and wraps on November 26 in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
