Korn’s Jonathan Davis Calls President Obama A “Dictator” When Discussing His Pop Culture Filled Music Video For “Spike In My Veins”Video Still From “Spike In My Veins” Music Video
Nu metal rock band Korn released the music video for their latest single “Spike In My Veins” earlier this month, and its pop culture references and conspiratorial message has turned our heads. We felt compelled to share it with you. The video features a blend of images that switch back and forth from national and international stories about major government topics like national security, Eric Snowden and personal privacy rights, to images of Kanye West, Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Robin Thicke, Jimmy Fallon, and others. As the video progresses, it is then revealed that Korn is watching those images play back on a wall of televisions that are presented like something out of a Gorge Orwell novel.
Essentially, the band is trying use their video as a platform to say that our hyperactive, junk food media loving society is being distracted from the real problems in our country/world by a series of well placed circus acts. Korn’s lead singer Jonathan Davis even went on record about the video with TMZ today, stating that Miley and Robin’s twerkfest at the 2013 VMAS was likely used as a distraction from when President Obama signed a law that “basically made him a dictator.”
This is a topic that could be debated for hours, and actually relates to many theories that have existed in this country for generations. Is Davis right? Maybe. But maybe, his video more accurately represents what we as an audience prioritize in our viewing habits, and the fact that media companies exploit our less than desirable ones because it is harder than ever to keep us from changing the channel, and they need ratings to function as an industry.
