KORN Singer Re-Records 'The Twilight Zone' Theme

Jonathan Davis, lead singer of the Grammy-nominated nu-metal band, KORN, has re-recorded the theme song for UPN's "The Twilight Zone". The new recording will make its debut on Wednesday, February 26, 9:00 p.m. –10:00 p.m. ET/PT on UPN opening an original episode featuring Eriq La Salle, Vivica A. Fox, Wayne Knight and Bonnie Sommerville.

Davis comments: "I thought it would be a great opportunity for me do something cool with the music for the show. I watched 'The Twilight Zone' growing up as a kid because that's the kind of stuff I'm into."

The sound of Davis' remake is "darker toned. There are a whole bunch of heavy guitars and big drums on it. The opening is dark and eerie since 'The Twilight Zone' is a place where anything can happen, and it's usually something twisted and dark. I want to make the visuals pop out and give you that eerie 'Twilight Zone' vibe."

Davis adds: "I've been a fan of the show since I was a kid. I'm a huge fan. I remember plenty of [episodes] that scared the hell out of me. Which is cool. I like that."

The February 26 episode of "The Twilight Zone" features "Memphis", a story penned and directed by and starring Eriq La Salle ("ER"). Film actress, Vivica A. Fox ("Independence Day") guest stars. Also on the 26th, Wayne Knight ("Seinfeld") and Bonnie Sommerville ("In-Laws") stars in "How Much Do You Love Your Kid!" , a glimpse at what happens when the latest craze on television, reality TV, enters "The Twilight Zone".
