Korn's 2002 album Untouchables is pretty damn popular. The album spawned the hit "Here To Stay," has sold over 1.5 million copies in the United States alone, and was generally well-received at the time of its release. Still, Korn guitarist Brian "Head" Welch isn't the biggest fan of it.

In an interview with Rock Sound, Welch said the album is overall pretty good but its creation was difficult. Welch said he was attempting sobriety as Korn recorded Untouchables, but there was a lot of partying surrounding the sessions that made that attempt not so easy.

"It's not my favorite. I like the record a lot — I think it's really good — but I love 'Here To Stay'. That opening, that riff, those guitar tones we got, you can't match 'em — it's ours forever; it's our sound forever. But yeah, that song hit hard. But the record was kind of challenging. I attempted sobriety that record. And we actually went to Arizona and got all these mansions and started recording and writing in these houses. And most of 'em were party houses. And I'm trying to get sober. And we spent so much money on that record. But it came out good. And we got some great memories."

Korn and Evanescence will hit the road this summer for a co-headlining tour throughout the U.S. The tour will feature Helmet, Palaye Royale, P.O.D., Jeris Johnson, and Dana Dentata as the openers, depending on which date you attend. Check 'em all out below.
