#46 – Korn – “Falling Away From Me” – (1999)

Korn’s Issues was released near the end of 1999 and this was the album’s first single. It’s awesome. So is the music video. This was the follow-up single to “Freak on a Leash” which has one of the best music videos of all time and this one, while not nearly as cool, is still pretty good and I distinctly remember it owning TRL for a little bit – the mark of any successful song from 1999. Actually, the video was directed by Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit. This song came out during a time when TRL (the then-current barometer for music popularity) featured songs from bubblegum Britney Spears backed up against alternative metal songs like this. It was an interesting (and awesome) time to be a music fan. Korn rocks.
