Korn Debuts At No. 1 On The Billboard 200
As expected, Korn's third full- length album, Follow the Leader, takes the lead position atop next week's sales chart, The Billboard 200. It kicks Snoop Dogg's Da Game Is to Be Sold, Not to Be Told down to the No. 3 spot, with the Beastie Boys saying Hello Nasty to the No. 2 position.
Korn's No. 1 bow beats their impressive high debut of 1996's Life Is Peachy, which clocked in at No. 3 in its first week. To help drive fans to retail stores this time around, Korn has been on an in-store appearance tour, Korn Kampaign, which is garnering crowds of up to 2,000 at each stop.
