The disc would be a key one for the band as it would make or break their future ability to tour and record without bassist Roger Waters.

Korn have seen better days. The exit of drummer David Silveria in 2006 (one of the hardest, finest skins-beaters of the nu-metal era) and a few ill-timed lineup changes have resulted in some below-average music compared to their first few albums.

Don’t get us wrong, loyal Korn fans still exist; you just don't see too many mainstream ones these days.

45 Years Ago: Pink Floyd’s ‘A Saucerful of Secrets’ Album Released

Even though it was only Pink Floyd's second album,  'A Saucerful of Seconds' is the literal sound of a band in transition, clinging to its past even as it plunges forward into the unknown. The album -- released 45 years ago -- is often overlooked by casual fans. It isn't a front-to-back masterpiece like 'The Dark Side of the Moon' or 'Wish You Were Here,' and it lacks a distinctive radio classic. But it's a crucial album in the band's sonic evolution.
