Freak on a Leash (4:17)

Cover of Follow the Leader

From Follow the Leader and 56 other releases

“Freak on a Leash” is a song by the American nu metal band Korn, featured on the group’s 1998 studio album Follow the Leader. Prior to the album’s release, Korn had an instrumental section of the song, described as a “noisy guitar break.” The section was taken out of the song after their fans requested it be taken out. After Follow the Leader’s release, the song was released as a single on May 25, 1999, and since then, it has been re-released over ten times. The song uses dissonance, distortion, and effects, and is “aggressive.”

The “Freak on a Leash” music video was released on February 5, 1999. Directed by Todd McFarlane in Los Angeles, California, the video explores both animations and live performances mixed together. As a result, the band released a music video that won three awards, and was retired from Total Request Live. With mixed reviews, the single peaked at number six on the Alternative Songs chart, ten on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart, and twenty-four on the UK Singles Chart.
