“Basic Needs”: Jonathan Davis’ New Song’s Stepdad Was Mean to Him Today


Korn’s Jonathan Davis has released a new solo song called “Basic Needs.” It’s ostensibly a love song…

I don’t feel hunger
I don’t need air
There’s blood in my veins
‘Cuz I know you are there
I don’t need shelter
Nothing at all
The reason I’m here?
Don’t you know that you are my basic needs?

…so the video is of course all about Davis being tortured in an insane asylum. Yup, that tracks.

I will say this for “Basic Needs”: I was not prepared for the turn the music takes at 3:42. Way to Shyamalan me, dude!
