"Did My Time" is a song written and recorded by American nu metal band Korn for the film, Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. It was released as a single in July 2003 in support of the film, and was later featured on the band's sixth studio album, Take a Look in the Mirror.

Music and structure

The song was an unfinished demo from 2002's Untouchables. James "Munky" Shaffer had written the main riff and was playing it every day, and producer Michael Beinhorn couldn't stand it. In early 2003, Korn completed the whole song, and caught the attention of Paramount Pictures who wanted to use it in the film Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life. However, the song was only released as a single for the film, and featured during the films end credits. It did not appear on the motion picture soundtrack, due to certain clauses in Jonathan Davis's record contract at the time,[1] the same reason why Davis could not release the original versions of the songs he composed for the Queen of the Damned soundtrack, which featured his vocals. The instrumental version of "Did My Time" was also featured on the PlayStation 2 fighting game "Fight Club" and VH1's 100 most shocking music moments in the discussion of the Woodstock 1999 riot.
