On Oct. 8, Korn will be inducted into Hollywood’s RockWalk, an enshrining of their hand prints that line the outside of the Guitar Center on the Sunset Strip. (It’s no coincidence their latest album, The Paradigm Shift, will be released the same day.)

The RockWalk was inaugurated on November 13, 1985 with the first inductions including Stevie Wonder, Eddie Van Halen, creator of the Gibson Les Paul guitar Ted McCarty, Martin Guitar founder C.F. Martin III and Marshall Amplifier creator Jim Marshall.

They’re in good company, immortalized next to AC/DC, Slash, Ted Nugent, B.B. King and a number of other rock and roll innovators. If you’re curious how one gets inducted, they have to be elected by previous honorees, making the deal that much sweeter.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
