    Tell me not... They should make a movie on JDs life before korn and begin it in high school and end it after korns self titled was a success.... So it'd probably be a long movie because that's covering his sexart times high school times, recording things in high school and what he did outside of school. That'd be fucking great but I don't know who would play him. Please share this to at least try and get it out there to be made because I know all of you think about what he went through in life

      Aaron Saber also include the rest of korns members. Giving a back story to each member, try not to focus too much on just one. David, Munky and Fieldy were all in L.A.P.D. together so you're just focusing on 3 bands. Korn, Sexart and L.A.P.D. Start the movie with them in their high school setting to show what they were doing at the time, their home life, how they were treated in school, hobbies other than music, how they met. Even go into Jonathan's dark past if he is comfortable with that, Show his jobs at pizza hut and as a coroner's assistant. Try to fit that into a 1 hour window, then really take off with the music. Fitting it into a 3-4 hour movie which I'd be fine with. It would be a fantastic movie Id definitely pay to see, I'd pay double the ticket costs to see this film.

    I think they called this stuff new wave back in the day. Jonathan Davis is insanely talented making music. its takes all five guy in korn to really make korn what it is even without David I think Ray is the better drummer and korn has evolved bigger then what it would have with David. But there is no questions that Jon Davis is the driving force of Korn

    You cant deny the soul and level of consciousness it takes to feel and convey such types of and amounts of emotion that few on here can relate to. So many people have tragic lives like he did, but the thing is, his wasnt a tragedy after the beginning, he got family and his band mates and the worlds love and support. Thats an awesome thing. I know i love him with my whole heart and hes a stranger to me, still

So its very evident even now how sensitive and st shy JD is. So for me its not a big surprise. New Wave was so popular all throughout 80s: Soft Cell, New Order, DM, Roxy Music, Visage, Talk Talk etc. And even now there are new bands. For example this song sounds very similar to early Lust for Youth demos
