While JNCO Jeans became practically synonymous with nü-metal fashion in the late 90s and have been resurrected a few times in the years since, it would seem that the genre’s pioneers Korn aren’t all that fond of them. In a recent interview with KISW , the band’s frontman Jonathan Davis and guitarist Brian “Head” Welch were asked if they still owned any pairs of the ultra-wide baggy pants.
The question was met with a laugh from Welch , while Davis offered: “I never wore JNCO s, I can honestly say I did not partake in it…” Welch went on to ask the interviewer if JNCO s were bell bottoms, leading Davis to reply “they were huge. Who started that?”
While an attempt to bring back the jeans came to a close in 2018, the line was once again brought back this year. Korn ‘s new studio album “ The Nothing ” will be released on September 13th.
