"Faget" is a song by Korn. It is the 6th track from their debut album titled Korn.


The song is about lead singer Jonathan Davis's time in high school and middle school where he was teased relentlessly and harassed by jocks for being into arts, new wave music (for example, Duran Duran) and wearing eyeliner. Many people assumed that he was gay and would call him names such as "faggot".[4][5][6][7][8]
