Politics
by Korn

Album: See You On The Other Side (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • According to Korn singer Jonathan Davis, this is about his aversion to discussing politics. He told MTV News: I mean there's politics in everything, and it's not necessarily governmental politics. There's who's going to sleep with whom to get ahead, who's going to do this to get that. ... I see it in the church, everyday life, government. That's what I'm talking about, not about the stupid crap that's going on with guys in suits and their views and their lobbies and their this and their that. Korn has never been a real political band. I'm political to a point where it affects human life, from global warming to abortion issues to my gun rights, stuff like that. Those are the kind of politics that I care about. The other BS with taxes or who's going to be ahead [in elections], I don't really care."
  • Korn thought about releasing their song "Love Song" as a single, but chose this song instead.
  • This song went to number 20 on the Dance Club Songs chart.
