"Our Hats Are Off to Devo": Korn's Jonathan Davis Responds to De-Evolution Dust-Up

By |

When Devo's Jerry Casale complained to Rock Daily about Korn borrowing his band's "de-evolution" concept for a fake film trailer called Devolution: Nature's U-Turn, the new-wave pioneer said he wouldn't hold his breath for due credit. Well, we're happy to report that Korn frontman Jonathan Davis has proven Casale wrong. "Korn never claimed to be the first to expose De-Evolution, our hats are off to Devo for that," he said in a statement to Rolling Stone one day before his band is slated to perform a free show at New York's South Street Seaport and hold court at a press conference at Times Square's Armed Forces Recruiting Station. "They are pioneers for sure! However, we are glad to see that our efforts have them speaking up again! It's good to have them back. They are needed in the fight!! In the meantime our researchers continue to uncover key evidence of De-Evolution at the highest levels (www.evolutiondevolution.com)."
