KoЯn is an USA nu metal band, which formed in Bakersfield in 1993. They contributed to create their genre along with Limp Bizkit and Deftones, and they were among the firsts to have success. They sold more than 30 millions copies of their albums, 17 millions in the USA.

Evanescence covered their song Thoughtless. This is what the singer Jonathan Davis said about the cover:

Vin1.jpg Yeah, we did a couple of shows with [Evanescence] in Europe and [they] played it," he told The Blitz 99.7 FM. "It's a huge, huge thing when an artist thinks of doing a cover of one of our songs, it just blows us away, and she [Evanescence singer Amy Lee] does it so beautifully. She's told me time and time again that she's a huge KORN fan. What was really cool was that in Europe, they were supposed to headline over us and she refused to do it and made us headline over them. There's a just a lot of respect there. I think she's a great girl and I love that cover — it came out beautifully. The way I hear things in my head sometimes, the more [time I spend] in a heavy band, I'm more about melody and shit like that, so… when I heard [Evanescence's version of 'Thoughtless'], it was really cool. The melodies really pop out.[1] Vin2.jpg

Amy Lee also sang a duet with KoЯn @ MTV studios in Times Square, New York City. The song Freak on a Leash was published as a single.

Both bands have remained good friends, and will often watch each other's set if they are playing at the same festival on the same day. In 2007 they went on tour together on the Family Values Tour.

On April 5, 2022 they announced a 18-date summer tour with Evanescence that took place in the US from August to September.[2] During this tour, Amy Lee joined the band onstage to sing Freak on a Leash.
