Korn Jumps On NIN Cover Bandwagon

If you were disappointed that only 58 bands have covered Nine Inch Nails songs this year, I've got good news for you! Our friends at Blabbermouth are reporting that Korn is recording a cover of the hit classic "Head Like A Hole" (as well as a perfectly-justified Pink Floyd cover) for its upcoming Greatest Hits collection!

KORN's upcoming greatest hits collection will include two new cover tunes, according to Launch Radio Networks. The group's versions of PINK FLOYD's "Another Brick In The Wall" and NINE INCH NAILS' "Head Like A Hole" will be featured on the album, which is due out this fall. By coincidence, California goth-punk act A.F.I. has also recorded a new version of the latter tune, although they landed a guest appearance from NIN frontman Trent Reznor. A.F.I.'s take on the song is slated to appear on a yet-to-be-named video game. KORN's greatest his package may also include the band's recently recorded collaboration with rapper Lil Jon.

Awesome! You can bet I'll be there the moment this record lands in the stores! I love the state of modern music.
