    Korn wrote the song “Faget” in the very beginning of their career. In the video below, they reminisce about writing the song at a house on 1111 Orange Street, in Huntington Beach, California. Jonathan Davis had just joined the band, after quitting his job as a professional embalmer at a funeral home.

    In the video, Brian “Head” Welch recalls, “[Jonathan] moved in with us, with his girlfriend, and I remember sitting in the room he rented. I had my guitar in there and I wrote the riff. We just came up with the song ‘Faget,’ right then and there. It was the very beginning.”

    Jonathan Davis added, “That song, I wrote about being picked on as a kid. In high school and junior high I was a very feminine dude. I wasn’t gay, but people liked to assume that I was gay and call me faget.” Davis explains that he used to wear makeup and his favorite band at the time was Duran Duran.

    “[‘Faget’] is just f*ck you, motherf*ckers [laughs] to all these people who teased us. So it feels good, it’s like payback,” Fieldy says at the end of the video.
