Ten Reasons to Not Hate Skrillex
8. Skrillex Can Almost Single-Handedly Revive Careers
We're looking at Korn, specifically. Those who remember Jonathan Davis and company may not see this as a good thing. But when the nu-metal giants wanted to reappear and look relevant, they tapped Skrillex and went dubstep. Sure, they've worked with other producers, like Datsik. But it was the Skrillex brand that snagged the attention of kids who were still in elementary school (or younger) when Korn reached its peak in the late '90s.
7. He's Actually Been Into the Dance Music Scene for Years
Though he got famous in a rock band, Moore grew up attending punk shows and underground dance music parties in his native California. And while Skrillex was his first production project to break out big, the ex-screamo kid had been releasing electronic stuff for years, either under his given name or various aliases like Twipz.
