It was the band’s best-selling album, selling over 14 million copies worldwide and seven million in the US. In an interview, bassist Reginald Arvizu, better known by his stage name Fieldy, talked about the creative process.
We never wanted to sound like every other band. Even though we liked all those bands that were part of the sound that we helped create, we’ve always wanted to be a step ahead of everyone else who was doing this kind of music.
The band made an eyeshadow palette with eight colors to honor the legendary album. The name of each color comes from another song on the LP. Korn told the 2.8 million people who follow them on Instagram:

This palette has 8 great “tracks” with different pigmented textures… Our collection is vegan, contains no harmful ingredients, is certified cruelty-free, and was put together with all skin tones in mind.
