Behind “Make me bad”

Make Me Bad” is a song written and recorded by American nu metal band Korn for their fourth studio album, Issues. Many Korn fans interpret the lyrics to be about frontman Jonathan Davis’ getting tired of drinking and drug abuse and his decision to get sober a year prior to Issues coming out. It was released as the album’s second single in February 2000, enjoying major success on US rock radio stations and in the United Kingdom. The Alien-inspired music video is one of the most expensive videos Korn have ever filmed, and features actors Brigitte Nielsen, Udo Kier, Tatjana Patitz and Shannyn Sossamon. An acoustic medley of “Make Me Bad” and The Cure’s “In Between Days” was performed with The Cure for the MTV Unplugged series in December 2006.

The video was directed by Martin Weisz, and features actresses Brigitte Nielsen, Tatjana Patitz, Shannyn Sossamon, and actor Udo Kier. Brigitte and Udo would play villains in the 2000 film, Doomsdayer. It received its world premiere in February 2000 on the short-lived USA Network music show Farmclub, alongside Limp Bizkit’s video for their single, “Break Stuff”. Both groups made a guest appearance to introduce their respective videos. “Make Me Bad” gained heavy airplay on MTV and MTV2 at the time of its release. Towards the end of the video, the song “Dead”, also from Issues, is heard in the background. “Make Me Bad” spent sixty-five days on MTV’s Total Request Live, becoming Korn’s fourth and final “retired” video on June 8, 2000.
