"No Place to Hide" is a song written and recorded by American nu metal band Korn for their second studio album, Life Is Peachy. It was released as the album's first single in September 1996.

Concept[edit]

"No Place to Hide" appears to have various themes. One could be that while Jonathan Davis exposes his painful past to the world he has no secrets left, and no comfort zones. He feels raped because Korn is becoming the next big thing and the media takes advantage of him pouring his soul out. This theme was carried into later singles "Freak on a Leash" and "Y'All Want a Single" where he feels he is simply used by the music industry to make money.

Live performance[edit]

The song has been seldom played since the promotional tours surrounding the release of Life Is Peachy. It is notable for being Korn's first televised performance, on a French music show on February 20, 1997. "No Place to Hide" made a return in 2011 during The Path of Totality Tour.

Music video[edit]

A video was not filmed; MTV compiled clips from Who Then Now? and the band's previous music videos in order for "No Place to Hide" to receive airplay on the station.

Awards[edit]

The song was nominated for a Grammy in 1998 for Best Metal Performance. It was Korn's second nomination in this category.
