Korn, ‘Here to Stay’ vs. Anthrax, ‘The Devil You Know’ – Metal Madness 2016, Round 1
Okay, this one should get interesting. Two bands that are quite far apart musically, but are both among the biggest in their respective scenes. Korn's "Here to Stay" takes on Anthrax's "The Devil You Know in this Round 1 matchup of March Metal Madness to determine the Best Metal Song of the 21st Century.
Korn kicked off the new millennium with Untouchables, a No. 2 album on the Billboard 200 charts thanks in large part to "Here to Stay." The Grammy-winning song boasts a lumbering riff that upheaves anything in its way as Jonathan Davis bears his soul through his tortured and twisted voice. "Here to Stay" will have have one of thrash's leading acts to contend with as it tries to advance to Round 2.
Anthrax stormed back with Worship Music in 2011, marking the first album of new material with singer Joey Belladonna since 1990. The result was an album that picked up where Persistence of Time left off over two decades ago. "The Devil You Know" serves as one of the album's standout tracks and a modern metal anthem.
So, which song will move on to Round 2 of March Metal Madness 2016? Listen to both tracks and vote for either Korn's "Here to Stay" or Anthrax's "The Devil You Know" as the Best Metal Song of the 21st Century in the poll below!
