Welcome to Radio Feedback, Radio.com’s weekly feature where we ask artists to wax nostalgic on the first time they heard themselves on the radio.

The year was 1994. Davis hadn’t the faintest idea that his life would never be the same.

“I was in Long Beach [California]. I was in my car coming home from practice and I heard it, and I just screamed all the way home. I opened the windows up. It was an amazing moment. I think it was on KNAC. I freaked out when they played it. I had a smile on my face for days.”

Davis’ elation was triggered by the now Internet-only hard rock station playing “Blind,” the band’s first breakout hit from their 1994 self-titled debut.

Who did Davis call first? Dad.

“He was happy. He was so stoked. But he was in the music business for a while when I was really young and he was really concerned about me getting in a band. He wanted me to get a normal job with stability and all that fun stuff but I just went for it. When I heard it I called him, he was really proud and he’s been really proud ever since.”

Korn’s eleventh album, The Paradigm Shift, is available now via Prospect Park/Caroline Records.
