"Got the Life" is a song written and recorded by American nu metal band Korn for their third studio album, Follow the Leader. It was released as the album's first single on August 10, 1998. It was recorded in April 1998 at NRG Recording Studios. It was decided they would release the song as a promotional single after each member found that there was something "special" about the song. The single had "phenomenal success", and its music video was requested more than any other video on MTV's TRL, making it the first officially "retired" music video.
"Got the Life" did not receive much attention in the music press, however Stephen Thomas Erlewine gave the single two out of five stars, but said that the song boasted "their best rhythm tracks to date." The song was rewarded a gold certification in Australia by the Australian Recording Industry Association. It peaked at number one on the Canadian RPM Rock/Alternative Chart chart, as well as number fifteen on the US Billboard Mainstream Rock Songs chart and number seventeen on the US Billboard Alternative Songs chart.
