Korn's Munky: ''Never Never' Was Absolutely Not My Choice for the Lead Single'
Korn guitarist James "Munky" Shaffer and drummer Ray Luzier admitted that "Never Never" was by no means their top choice for the lead single of the band's latest album "The Paradigm Shift." While chatting with Artisan News, Munky noted that although the song is surely catchy, it's simply not "a good representation" of what the record has to offer. The tune itself is currently the No. 1 song on Active Rock Radio chart. Asked on whether "Never Never" was his first choice, Munky commented: "Absolutely not," with Luzier visibly approving. "It was a lot of back and forth between the label, the management and the band. It was just - yeah it's a catchy song, but at the same time we were felling like it wasn't a good representation of the rest of the record." The axeman continued, "But we didn't wanna cut ourselves short and not give people one of the catchiest songs and you know - not reach a bigger audience, because we want - why not? Every band wants more fans, even at level that we're at, we still would like to have more people at our shows, so..." Luzier chipped in, "It's cool 'cause a lot of stations are playing it that never played a Korn song, which I think is awesome." "The Paradigm Shift" dropped on October 8 via Prospect Park Records as the band's eleventh studio record. Debuting at No. 8 on the US Billboard 200 chart, it now ties Korn with Dave Matthews Band for the most Top 10 albums by a group in the Soundscan era, starting from May 1991.
