Jonathan Davis and Korn have treated us to some unintentionally terrible cover songs over the years, from an unplugged version of Radiohead’s “Creep” to a conglomerate take on Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall.” Now Davis, without his bandmates but with Slipknot’s Jim Root, has unfurled the strangest cover of them all after attempting Lil Wayne’s “Got Money.” Like its predecessor, Davis’ “Got Money” utilizes AutoTune vocals and is pretty faithful, except for the fact that the chorus sounds less like “Got Money (Remix)” and more like Limp Bizkit’s “Nookie.” This isn’t the first time Davis has tried his hand at hip-hop, as Korn also covered Ice Cube’s “Wicked” back on 1996’s Life Is Peachy. “Got Money” is available for as multi-format download for the low price of your email address on a mailing list over at Jonathan Davis’ website.
