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.

“Whoomp! (There It Is)”

Tag Team | 1993

Cecil Glenn — a.k.a., "D.C." — was a cook at Magic City, a nude dance club in Atlanta, when he first heard women shout "Whoomp — there it is!" Inspired by the party chant, he and partner Steve "Roll'n" Gibson wrote a song around it. Undaunted by label rejections, they borrowed $2,500 from Glenn's parents and pressed 800 singles, which quickly sold out in the Atlanta area. A record deal came soon after. Glenn said the song was meant for positive partying. "If you're going to say 'Whoomp there it is,' and you're doing something negative, we'd rather it not have come out of your mouth."
