Korn has never been much of a political band.
Lead singer Jonathan Davis even said so himself in 2006 when he told MTV he wrote the song “Politics” because “it’s just about how I don’t like to talk about politics…Korn has never been a real political band.”
Things seem to have changed.
The metal band, which has logged such hits as “Freak on a Leash” and “Falling Away from Me”, recently spoke with Billboard.com to promote their new album, “The Path of Totality”.
In the interview, the band explained the meaning behind some of their songs, including “Illuminati”.
Davis says: “I feel like Obama’s an Illuminati puppet. He’s basically dragged this country down into the worst it’s ever been. Like I say about the White House, ‘You’ve built this house of shame.’ Everybody looked up at the White House and America and now I think it’s like a house of shame. I miss the old days when people were proud to be American.”
As for so-called “conspiracy theories” and the New World Order, Davis says, “I can see it, and I read about it, and this stuff’s actually starting to happen. It kinda’ freaks me out.”
Perhaps we should count the members of Korn among the ranks of the “awakened.”
