Korn lead singer Jonathan Davis has a confession to make: He really digs listening to Duran Duran.
"My music taste is so eclectic," Davis told the San Francisco Chronicle. "The other day I was listening to the 'Xanadu' soundtrack. That song 'Whenever You're Away From Me' just rocks. And then after that I was listening to Cannibal Corpse."
The heavy metal band, whose songs include "Wake Up Hate" and "Dead Bodies Everywhere," has released its sixth CD, "Take a Look in the Mirror," after winning a Grammy Award for best metal performance and playing the Ozzfest Tour in 2003.
The new album has plenty of the angst and anger that have typified previous Korn records, Davis said.
"There was a lot of stuff going on in my life when I was doing this record that made me want to scream. I don't scream for the sake of screaming. Things just happened that pushed me in that direction," the 32-year-old said.
When prodded, Davis said many things enraged him: "Problems with my girl. Problems with my family. Business relationships. Friends. You name it."
