AllMusic Review by

"Got the Life" was the first single from Korn's third album, Follow the Leader, and it rivaled such previous masterworks as "A.D.I.D.A.S." and "Shoots and Ladders." Their fusion of metal and rap was stronger than ever, boasting their best rhythm tracks to date. Which is good, since the B-sides of the "Got the Life" singles were devoted to remixes. The first part of the two-part U.K. single contained the original album version, plus the "Deejay Punk-Rock Remix" and the instrumental "D.O.S.E.'s Woollyback Remix," and these were also featured on the U.S. single. The "Deejay Punk-Roc Remix" is pretty good, but the instrumental is of negligible worth. The second part of the single is backed with "I Can Remember" plus "Good God (OOMPH! vs. Such A Surge Remix)," neither of which are particular memorable. Still, both parts are of interest to hardcore collectors, and they're probably preferable to the U.S. single, since the packaging is nice and they contain more B-sides than its American counterpart.
