New music video from Korn rages against NSA, surveillance, “manipulated” media

| WTF News |
February 7, 2014


Seasoned heavy metal group Korn has released a new song that lashes out at the brain-dead culture reinforced by the “manipulated” media. Oh yea, the rampant illegal global surveillance by the NSA and others irritates them also.

Rolling Stone
On Korn‘s tension-filled tune “Spike in My Veins,” the band attacks governmental data surveillance and modern information overload. “We are all so caught up in watching crazy media on the internet and TV that we are manipulated into ignoring that our privacy has all but disappeared,” Korn’s Jonathan Davis says. The song is one of the standouts from 2013′s The Paradigm Shift and the video reflects the band’s mindset.

From the onset, we see them stomping around a room filled with TV monitors, as the video first cuts to news reports of data surveillance before the broadcast is interrupted with a Justin Bieber report. There’s not-so-subtle images of President Obama walking out to give a Presidential Address that’s spliced with him walking onto Jimmy Fallon’s stage and videos of Toronto mayor Rob Ford and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie interrupted by shots of Miley Cyrus and Kanye West. Korn’s point is clear: Is news news or just entertainment?

The Paradigm Shift is out now. The band kicks off a world tour starting February 20th in Australia.

I wonder if fellow DPers are

I wonder if fellow DPers are extreme metal (grindcore, death metal, deathgrind) fans. Here are some bands I recommend you guys check out. All these songs have lyrics available in the video description or can be found with a simple google search.

Been listening to this kind of music since I was 12 years old and many of my teachers in middle school and high school have praised me for being so informed about politics and history yet I never picked up a text book. I just listened to this music and read lyrics.

I'm really glad that KoRn is taking a similar approach. Nowadays music doesn't really have substance. All there is is music about sex and status while there is little about love, politics, or being able to inspire people to do good.

Song about war on drugs:


Song about government propaganda and its goals to dehumanize the indigenous and rile people up to support war.


Gun rights.


Imperialism/Foreign Policy



Resisting Tyranny


Song discussing George Bush's deceiving people into supporting endless wars.


Song title says it all.


haha Nice...

Kick ass song and video. :)

Keep your eye on the prize! - Ending legal tender laws in order for the Federal Reserve System to self-destruct is of the upmost importance.

Cool! We need more bands taking up the reigns

to combat the fascists like Korn has done.

Anyone else like this?

I think it's a pretty cool song and video.

Does he answer the question

Does he answer the question about his religion with "I am a satanic christian"?

Just did a google search, he collects serial killer memorabilia, so I probably heard him right.
