Jonathan Davis Explains Why Korn’s Song With Fred Durst Is ’The Worst’
Lead singer Jonathan Davis revealed Korn’s worst song ever, featuring Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst during his recent interview with Metal Hammer. Also, the musician shared his thoughts about the track, which was featured in a very popular record.
Korn released their third studio album entitled ‘Follow the Leader’ on August 18, 1998, and it received highly positive reviews from their fans and music critics. The record hit the charts and sold millions of copies worldwide, so it’s been certified five-times Platinum, making it the band’s best-selling album. Korn collaborated with Ice Cube, Tre Hardson, and Limp Bizkit’s Fred Durst for some tracks, and some of them drew significant attention.
Jonathan Davis and Durst performed a rhyming duel in ‘All in the Family.’ The two frontmen kept insulting each other with controversial words about homophobia and incest, mainly to prove which one was better. It’s typical to think this verbal-assaulting competition was rooted in an ongoing feud between two bands. Still, Davis and Durst had another story about its composition and recording process.
In his interview, Davis highlighted that they were too drunk to make a song, but they decided to create ‘All in the Family’ with Durst in the studio. The frontman described the song as the most horrible song ever; therefore, it seems like Davis regretted the track, including very harsh lyrics. The Korn singer added that ‘All in the Family’ was a part of two drunk men’s night which they shouldn’t have put in the new record.
Davis said in his interview the following:
“‘All In The Family’ is the worst song ever. It’s horrible. We were all drunk in the studio, and I was trying to rap. At the time, we were having a good time, but now I cringe. I’ve got nothing against Fred; it just sucks! We were out of our minds drunk! It shouldn’t have made the record.“
