KXM is a power-trio rock supergroup comprised of Dug Pinnick of the tragically underrated King’s X on vocals & bass, Dokken guitarist George Lynch and great session and current Korn drummer Ray Luzier. They released their self-titled debut record earlier this year and have just released the video for the latest track off of that album, “Gunfight.”
Fuck I love this video. Seriously, it is like a big FUCK YOU to the Obama administration, the Federal Government and those who would trample on our liberties.

This is awesome.
A few weeks back, during Metallica Night at AT&T Park in the People’s Republic of San Fransicko, James Hetfield & Kirk Hammet of Metallica performed the National Anthem before the Giants game.
Now unrelated to that, here is a studio recorded version of the Star Spangled Banner, done by onetime Metallica guitarist, Dave Mustaine for the upcoming Dinesh D’Souza documentary ‘America.’ This also marks 45 years since Jimi Hendrix recorded his famous version of the song.
Via The Hollywood Reporter:
“First off, no version of our national anthem is or will ever be better than the original,” Mustaine said. “My inspiration and take on the song for the film was our Founding Fathers and wondering what they would think of us today if they saw what we had become. My hope for America is that we’ll become a nation they’d be proud of again and I tried to capture that with my guitar.”
The video, which is embedded below along with the Hendrix version at Woodstock, consists of audio of Mustaine playing guitar to snippets of the movie, and it acts as a teaser trailer for America. Read More…
On this Memorial Day weekend as you spend time catching up with family and friends, enjoying steaks and burgers on the grill and some cold beers. Take the time to remember the reason for the extended 3-day-weekend.
The brave soldiers that paid the ultimate sacrifice.
May 16th, 2014 was Metallica Night at AT&T Park. Here is James & Kirk playing The Star Spangled Banner.
I’m a Nine Inch Nails fan, but this is hilarious. I bet you Trent Reznor thinks so too.
A new ad from Bavaria Brewery in the Netherlands, for their Radler (similar to the summer shandy’s that have been popular in the US the last few years), features Elvis Presely, Tupac Shakur, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee, Kurt Cobain and John Lennon — or actually really bad impersonators all living together blissfully on a deserted tropical island.
Hawaiian singer Kawehi, using nothing much more then a step sequencer, a MIDI keyboard and her voice, has recorded a pretty bad-ass cover of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box.”
I’m not an Alex Jones fan, for the most part I think he’s a tinfoil hat wearing 9/11 truther nut-job, who when he does make valid points, they are overridden by his nuttiness — he does far more harm then good to the cause of liberty.
However, as a liberty-loving conservative who happens to also be a metalhead and someone who believes that culture is the key in fighting the socialist plague that has infected our country, I had to share this story.
A while back I wrote about Korn’s new video for their new song “Spike in My Veins,” which blasted Barack Obama more then anyone famous in the music world has done before. Now Korn frontman Jonathan Davis recently appeared on “The Alex Jones Show” and stated that Obama is becoming “more of a dictator” and claims that the US turning into a “police state.”
Asked about the inspiration for KORN’s “Spike in My Veins” video — which overlaps important news reports of government lookout and major political figures with modern pop acts such as Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus and Kanye West — Davis said: “For a long time, I’ve been into what’s going on with our country.
“I don’t necessarily consider myself a political person, but over the years, I’ve seen what’s been going on, and it’s time to do something about what’s going on with our country and the system and everything that’s going on.
“It seems really sad that everybody’s so asleep and oblivious to the fact that the country uses the media to capture people’s attention or take away from the fact that what’s going on with our country.
“It really freaked me out when the whole Miley Cyrus thing was going on, and when that went down, [President] Barack [Obama] passed that new law that he can imprison anyone he wants and he doesn’t have to charge them and he can keep them as long as he wants.
“Basically, all our liberties are being taken away one by one, and finally, I feel like it’s time… I’ve gotta do something and try and get as many people as we can to wake up and see what’s really going on.”
Asked about the meaning behind the title of KORN’s 11th studio album, last year’s “The Paradigm Shift”, Davis said: “I think it’s time for us as normal people to come up and fight against the powers that be.
“I think this country was founded and based in the beginning and set up for us to have revolutions when we don’t like our government and what our government has done and taken over and taken away all our privacy and all the things going on with the drones…. I mean, everything. It’s a scary time, and I think that someone’s gotta do it in our position, someone’s gotta speak out to the younger audience and let them know what’s going on and how to wake up and take back their privacy.”
He continued: “Big Brother is alive and well. I mean, you’re looking at me on my camera phone. It wasn’t about putting up cameras. I think we’ve already got cameras everywhere. You can’t tell me that there’s no backdoors for everybody to see, so that the powers that be can see what we’re doing and watch what we’re doing at all times. And I’m not comfortable with that. And I think it needs to go. And they’re building that huge-ass building, NSA is, for all the spying, and it’s just gonna get worse and worse. I mean, it’s scary times, brother.
“Nobody cares what’s going on behind the closed doors when Obama makes all these crazy laws that take away more and more of our privacy. It’ll make you more of a dictator.
“Something’s gotta happen, man. It’s gotta stop.”
Davis also elaborated on why he thinks Obama is becoming more of a “dictator” as time goes on.
“I mean, I’ve said it before. I think he’s an illuminati puppet,” the singer said. “It just doesn’t make sense, the whole thing. The guy comes from out of nowhere, he gets made president, all this stuff starts happening. I don’t know… It just didn’t make sense to me. And to top top it off, I’m not really a political person, I don’t know much about it, I’m just worried about my privacy and my children’s privacy. This being America, we’re supposed to be the ‘land of the free,’ and it’s becoming a police state.”
He added: “I just want us to become the country we used to be.
“I remember, when I was a kid, how amazing our country was, and as I’ve grown up and watched things happen, I just want it to be like it used to be. Read More…
Hopefully more voices in the music world and throughout the rest of Hollyweird can come out of the cold and wake up.
Korn is a band that I haven’t listened to in quite a few years now, but is a band that I really dug when they first came out. Their self-titled debut was the soundtrack to many good times cruising around town in my pick-up truck during my senior year in high school. I stopped paying attention to them around their sixth album, which was released over a decade ago.
They just released a new video for the song “Spike in My Veins,” off of last years eleventh studio album The Paradigm Shift. In the video the band performs in front of a large wall of televisions as recent ‘celebrities’ in the ‘news’ like Toronto mayor Rob Ford, Miley Cyrus, and Justin Bieber flash across the screens.
But within each clip, there appears to be a glitch, as shots of President Obama on celebrity talk shows are intermingled with his political comments on NSA spying.
Korn singer Jonathan Davis recently told Rolling Stone, “We are all so caught up in watching crazy media on the internet and TV that we are manipulated into ignoring that our privacy has all but disappeared.”
Maybe, just maybe the pop culture tide is starting to shift, if ever so slightly to the side of the liberty minded.
