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.

“Love Is the Answer”

Utopia | 1977

The message of the Beatles' "All You Need Is Love" proved to be a universal and long-lasting one, which Utopia revisited 10 years later on this ballad. "From a lyrical standpoint, it's part of a whole class of songs that I write, which are about filial love," Todd Rundgren explained. "I'm not a Christian, but it's called Christian love, the love that people are supposed to naturally feel because we are all of the same species. That may be mythical, but it's still a subject." Though "Love Is the Answer" wasn't a hit, a cover version two years later by England Dan & John Ford Coley peaked at Number Ten on the Billboard singles chart.
