Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has blasted President Obama, calling him an "Illuminati puppet" in a new interview. "He's basically dragged this country down into the worst it's ever been," Davis told Billboard. "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."

Obama came up in Davis' discussion of the new Korn song "Illuminati," which appears on the group's latest album, Path of Totality. The set, their 10th record overall, finds the nü-metal rockers experimenting with dubstep and drum and bass music with guest producer Skrillex.

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
