02/23/2004: "parody xxtreme"

Press sheets are a pretty reliable source of cheap amusement when I'm feeling a little blue. Today's stab at relentless hyperbole was the best in recent history, though -- the press release with the new Deerhoof record. "On the surface this is an album for the mp3 generation: 11 hit singles, no two alike, with an outrageously unpredictable sound, somewhere between 'The Love Below' and 'Cats'. And yet repeated listens reveal an emotional depth and melodic sophistication that sets it deservedly alongside a timeless concept album like The Kinks' 'Village Green Preservation Society.'" Made me laugh for a solid minute (all while trying to figure out exactly how dire something would have to be to be a cross between 'The Love Below' and 'Cats'.) Then this line had me in stitches: "This is their 'Fantasia', their '2001: A Space Odyssey', a whole new level for the band, and a classic." God I love it.

haha this is great!! i don't get anything sent to me from korn :(

geeta said @ 02/24/2004 02:19 PM EST

That's OK--try this:

KORN DELIVER POTENT WAKE-UP CALL WITH NEW SINGLE AND VIDEO, "Y'ALL WANT A SINGLE"

"It's an anti-single."

That's how KORN lead singer JONATHAN DAVIS describes the band's newest release--"Y'All Want A Single"--from their current platinum-selling album TAKE A LOOK IN THE MIRROR. It's a sardonic, frank statement from a band whose focus has never been to create "radio singles." As the song's chorus goes: "Y'all want a single/Say 'fuck that'!"

KORN--JONATHAN, MUNKY, HEAD, FIELDY and DAVID--intensify this sentiment with a startling, button-pushing video that finds the band demolishing a record store while unflinchingly questioning the practices and state of the music industry.

Conceived by the band and director Andrews Jenkins, the video was shot at a record store in Los Angeles that was going out of business (a sign of the times). The enraged band storm through the aisles, violently smashing more than 20,000 CDs and display cases with crowbars. The record store staff and fans join the frenzy as windows are broken and the store is ultimately destroyed. "It's fun to bust shit up for a good cause," said one of the fans involved in the melee.

This raw intensity is balanced with potent messages constantly flashing on the screen (see below) that add up to a giant wake-up call. At the core of the song and video is KORN's love for the music itself.

"Music Monopoly?"

"One corporation owns the 5 major video channels in the U.S."

"Only 4 songs are added to the average radio playlist each week."

"Hit songs on Top 40 are often repeated over 100 times per week."

"Is that all you want to hear?"

"90% of all singles get to the 'hook' within 20 seconds."

"Why is a song worth 99 cents?"

"Do you download songs?"

"Steal this video."

"This is a single."

"We love making music."

"Love, KORN"

"There's always all this pressure from the record company and management saying 'we need a single for radio,'" reflects DAVIS. "We were sitting around in the studio looking at each other and said, 'I guess we gotta write a single.' We just started laughing and wrote this song. It was like a 'fuck you' to singles in general. This is us doing things our way, doing what we want to do."
