Incubus: "Korn ruined rock!"

Incubus: "Korn ruined rock!"
Nu-metallers point the finger at Jonathan Davis and co.

Incubus guitarist Mike Einziger has explained how friends and fellow Californians Korn have ruined rock music.

"It's so funny how horribly Korn have messed up the whole world of rock music," Einziger told Kerrang! this week. "They know it, too. And they just laugh about it. Ever since they became popular, every band has been tuning waaaay down and you have all these bands on the radio that are like these horribly, hybrid imitations of them. It's hilarious."

Mudvayne Make Statement, Continue With Merry Mayhem...

Mudvayne have made a statement regarding their recent cancellation of the Pledge Of Allegiance tour. The band is currently still lined-up for the A Night Of Merry Mayhem tour with Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie. Mudvayne have come under fire lately for dropping off the Pledge Of Allegiance for widely-speculated "personal reasons".

Here is the statement:

Dear Mudvayne Fans,

After 18 consecutive months on the road Mudvayne has decided to cancel all remaining dates of the Pledge of Allegiance tour. We want to sincerely apologize to our fans for this disappointment, but due to business circumstances that Mudvayne had with the tour, a quick decision had to be made. The next 3 weeks will allow the band to re-group and prepare for our most exciting tour yet, Merry Mayhem with Ozzy Osbourne and Rob Zombie starting Halloween night in Tucson, Arizona. Our apologies for any inconvenience or misunderstanding.

Gurrg, Kud, Ryknow & sPaG

Fred Durst: Give Peace A Chance.


There was a time when Fred Durst encouraged fans to "Break Stuff." That time is over. In the wake of the terrorist attacks that took place on September 11, Limp Bizkit's often-agitated leader is making a positive change.

"It is time to come together and realize that life is so precious, every single day, every night, everything we take for granted," Durst said.

Anyone else find that a little bit lame?
Or maybe a big load of Durst crap?
