They’ve delved into disturbing subject matter many times before, but with their new video for “Here to Stay,” Korn make their most direct and pointed commentary on sex and violence to date. The clip, which views like a graphic channel-surfing journey between CNN and the Discovery Channel, depicts a boy in front of a television broadcasting rapid-fire images, including a mob tipping over a car, fires, car collisions, open-heart surgery, animals mating and crocodiles attacking prey. Throughout, the band is depicted in black-and-white against a wall of TV static. In the end, the boy touches the TV screen and disappears… Read more »

Jonathan Davis co-wrote and recorded five songs for the upcoming vampire flick “Queen of the Damned,” but don’t expect to hear the Korn singer’s recognizable growl on the film’s soundtrack. Because Davis’ record label contract prohibits his voice from appearing on the disc, which will be released around the same time as the next Korn album, he has recruited and trained veteran hard rock singer Jeff Scott Soto to record his parts, according to a Warner Bros. spokesperson for the movie. Soto recently signed a solo record deal after recording some of the music in “Rock Star.” Davis and composer… Read more »
Halloween is the time to put on your favorite spooky tracks or just play all the songs you love year-round for your normie friends. Of course, myriad instrumental songs are instantly recognizable and iconic, such as in the case of A24’s Talk To Me’s “Le Monde” by Richard Carter, taking over TikTok and Instagram Reels.

When Jonathan Davis refers to having the terrible twos behind him, it’s not a parenting reference. (His son, Pirate, will actually turn 2 in March.) “We always say that, musically, our 20s are the terrible twos,” the Korn singer explained. “When you are 20 you do the stupidest stuff to your body, you’re close-minded, you’re like a 2-year-old – just grown up and can drink.
