Korn’s Jonathan Davis believes Obama is part of “Illuminati”

Pin it

Hey, remember Korn? The guys behind "Shoots and Ladders" and "Freak on a Leash," and the early forebears of the horrific and douche-centric late-'90s era of nu-metal that polluted our airwaves with similarly poorly-spelled acts like Limp Bizkit and Linkin Park? Well, they have a new studio album coming out shortly, The Path of Totality, and are getting all press junket-heavy to get the word out about this "innovative hybrid of metal and dubstep." As part of their media onslaught, the folks over at Billboard sat down with Korn head honcho Jonathan Davis and got themselves a song-by-song analysis/back-story for the new record.

And everything was going nice and smooth —  talk of chaos living in everything, interspersed with complaints about the egos; standard deep(!) meaningful(!) philosophical(!) musings from Davis —  until he gets to the description for the fifth song on the album, "Illuminati." And then things get kind of, well, here:

"I feel like Obama's an Illuminati puppet… it's basically dragged this country down into the worst it's ever been. 'You've built this house of shame' — the White House used to be, everybody looked up at the White House and America and everything, and now I think it's like a house of shame."

Alrighty. Obama's an Illuminati. So, then. We can now all go back to not really worrying what Korn's Jonathan Davis has to say about things.
