Korn At The Krossroads: Band Explores Options In 'Dying' Music Biz
|Jonathan Davis calls Korn's next
single "a very personal song," but it's not as different from
the anti-music-industry tirade "Y'all Want a Single?" as one
"It's about feeling like you've ... lost everything," Davis
said of "Everything I've Known," the third single from Take
a Look in the Mirror. "I was having problems with my girl,
problems with my family, problems businesswise — not problems within
the band internally, but things going on outside. I just felt like I was
losing everything I'd known around me, because basically, I am. I mean,
me and my girl made up and everything's fine, but the music business is
While "Y'all Want a Single?" is a smartass response to the
commercialization of music, "Everything I've Known" is, at
least partially, an emotional reaction to the ailing music business.
"I feel so enslaved," Davis sings at one point. "F--- my
"It's a scary time for us in the music industry," Davis said,
sitting behind the board at his home studio. "It is going to die.
There's no way around it. A new model has to come out, things have to
change. It's not like, 'OK, spend a gazillion dollars on making an
album, go shoot a video, put it on MTV' — that's just not happening
anymore. So that's a big, scary jump for us, and we've got to think of
different ways to do this."
In the fall Korn will release a greatest-hits collection, which will
fulfill their seven-album deal with Epic Records. The album may include
the band's forthcoming collaboration with Lil Jon, slated to be recorded
next week. It's unlikely the band will re-sign with Epic or any major
"We're assessing things," Davis said. "Basically, all our
record company ever did was box and ship, and now we're at the point
with the Internet where we can basically do that ourselves. I mean, we
don't have that endless supply of money from the record company, but if
we do it smart, we might actually be able to make some money and not rip
our fans off by charging 25 bucks for a CD. [Instead, we'd charge] $7 or
$8 and try to make it better for the fans, 'cause kids will go buy music
if it's good and at the right price. But if they feel like they're
getting ripped off, why not download it?"
Davis said that no major band has so far created a model business plan
for functioning independently, but he thinks Orgy are on the right
"They're doing it on their own," he said of the band, which
just released an album on its own label after leaving Warner Bros. (with
whom Orgy first signed via Korn's Elementree imprint, no longer
affiliated with Warner). "They're getting all of [the profits from
album sales], and they're out on the road right now touring. I think
Davis has grown even more disenchanted with the music industry through
trying to sign the Drama, a new band whose album he just finished
"I'm trying to get them not to fall into that, 'Oh, we want to get
the big money' [attitude] because that's all owed [back to the record
company that paid it]," Davis said. "It's like, 'Let's do this
album cheap, let's get you out on the road and forget about the album
sales until the new model comes out. Let's get you big so you can make
some money on T-shirts and concerts.' That's how we make our money. We
never made money on our records. That's the biggest scam in the
