Korn will gets down on their hands and knees along Sunset Boulevard to be immortised by the Guitar Center.

The RockWalk, outside the Guitar Center store on Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood, honors some of the greats of music and, on October 8, they will add Korn. The honor ties in with the release the same day of the group’s eleventh album, The Paradigm Shift.

Member Jonathan Davis said of the honor “When you look at the names of the other people inducted here all you can say is ‘wow!’ What an honor!”

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.”

The RockWalk has previously honored such artists as Eric Clapton, George Martin, Jimmy Page, Iron Maiden, Carlos Santana, Johnny Cash, Van Halen, AC/DC, Aerosmith, Marvin Gaye, James Brown, B.B. King, Stevie Wonder, Run-D.M.C. and Queen, among numerous others.

Dave Weiderman, Chairman of the RockWalk, 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.”
