Korn's 'Spike In My Veins' Video Is Band's Attempt To Be Relevant In 2014

Posted: Updated:

Korn, a band that last saw major success in the late '90s, has released a video for the song "Spike In My Veins," a.k.a. "Hey, remember us? We still exist."

The video, which was released on Feb. 7 and went largely unnoticed by major news outlets, is a less-than-subtle attempt to claim that popular culture is distracting people from more important issues.

It's a quite obvious jab at President Obama whose image is juxtaposed against celebrity news makers including Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber and Kanye West, interspersed with clips of protests and the NSA scandal.

When TMZ caught up with the band's frontman Jonathan Davis he was even more upfront about his conspiracy theories.

"I think that our government uses those people to detract from what's really going on," he told the website. "The thing with the whole Miley Cyrus stuff at the VMAs, when that went down Obama passed a law that made him basically a dictator. He can imprison whoever he wants. He doesn't have to charge them, he can hold them as long as he wants." Davis is actually referring to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), which President Obama signed into law in late December of 2013; Cyrus' infamous VMA performance occurred in August.

It's not the first time Davis has spoken out against the President. In 2011, he called Obama an "Illuminati puppet," telling Billboard, "He's basically dragged this country down into the worst it's ever been. Like I say about the White House, 'You've built this house of shame.' Everybody looked up at the White House and America and now I think it's like a house of shame. I miss the old days when people were proud to be American."
