KORN Frontman Is 'Extremely Concerned' About American Conservatives

Although Jonathan Davis dismissed any political influence when writing "See You on the Other Side", the KORN singer told Australia's Time Off magazine that he is still unhappy with the current state of government affairs in America. "I'm extremely concerned with how conservative America is," Davis said. "America was built on the people having the freedom to do what they want, and it just seems like the Christian right wants to take over and take away everyone's rights on things like abortion and just everything. It's just so fucking conservative it's ridiculous! I mean, I love Europe and I love Australia, places that seem freer to me. People freak out about movies from Europe and pornography, but people should be free to do the fuck what they wanna do and speak what they wanna speak. America has got a lot of fucked-up stuff going on right now. Fucking stupid religious people have gotten power and are trying to change things to the way they like 'em. It's so fucking retarded."

As previously reported, KORN and DEFTONES will be co-headlining this year's Family Values Tour. Rounding out the mainstage lineup will be STONE SOUR, FLYLEAF and DIR EN GREY. For the first time, the trek — which kicks off July 27 in Virginia Beach — will also feature a second stage, with acts to be announced soon.
