And Finally Beef Of The Week

CMU Beef Of The Week #90: Korn v The Illuminati

By | Published on Friday 9 December 2011


Last week Korn frontman Jonathan Davis was claiming to have invented dubstep in 1994 (or rather, a style of metal that had some elements in common with dubstep), this week he’s accusing Barack Obama of being no more than a yes man for the Illuminati. Bless him, his music may have gone down hill in the last ten years, but he’s still good for a quote.

Davis tells Billboard that he has been researching the Illuminati and New World Order recently, and although he insists that he’s just interested and doesn’t really care if all the conspiracy theories are true or not, he adds: “It’s all coming down [to] a one-world government, and I can see it and I read about it, and this stuff’s actually starting to happen”.

His basis for this seems to be that the respective economic and political unions of the USA, Europe and Russia exist. Next we’ll have an Asian union, he reckons, which suggest he’s not that up on the state of relations in that geographic area now and over the last few thousand years. And, of course, the EU might have collapsed by this afternoon, so we may not be as close as Davis reckons to the “one-world government” he claims all this will lead towards.

Anyway, he’s more concerned with how The Illimunati is ruining America by forcing Barack Obama to do all sorts of terrible things, like, erm, well, presumably introducing healthcare for the poor and trying to grapple with the dire worldwide economic situation he inherited.

Speaking about the track ‘Illuminati’, from Korn’s new album ‘The Path Of Totality’, he then goes on: “I feel like Obama’s an Illuminati puppet. He’s basically dragged this country down into the worst it’s ever been. I mean, like, one of [the lines is 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. It’s like, just hang your head down. I miss the old days when people were proud to be an American”.

Watch Davis say more as bandmates Fieldy and Munky mostly look bored or like they’re planning their escape:
