It’s not often we get a baggy-panted nostalgic trip back to 90s with a Korn theme tune and a Miley Cyrus conspiracy theory.

So imagine our joy when we stumbled across frontman Jonathan Davis’ latest musings on "what’s really going" on behind the scenes at the White House.

The nu metal singer accused Barack Obama of using the Bangerz star as a media puppet to distract the nation from important political issues in the US.

Speaking on The Alex Jones Show, Davis suggested that the President manipulates the media in order to refocus civilian attentions on more trivial matters. Like twerking and really high-cut briefs.

"It seems really sad that everybody's so asleep and oblivious to the fact that the country uses the media to capture people's attention or take away from the fact that what's going on with our country," he said.

"It really freaked me out when the whole Miley Cyrus thing was going on, and when that went down, Barack passed the new law that he can imprison anyone he wants and he doesn't have to charge them. He can keep them as long as he wants."

Meanwhile, on the recent NSA revelations, he said: "I'm just worried about my privacy and my children's privacy. This being America, we're supposed to be the 'land of the free', and it's becoming a police state.

"I think we've already got cameras everywhere. You can't tell me that there's no backdoors for everybody to see, so that the powers that be can see what we’re doing and watch what we're doing at all times. And I’m not comfortable with that. And I think it needs to go. And they're building that huge-ass building, NSA is, for all the spying, and it’s just gonna get worse and worse."

Jonathan Davis, looking every inch the conspiracy theorist with Korn.

Some equally nostalgic types might remember Davis as the guy with in the full Adidas tracksuit who, back in 2011, had called Obama an "Illuminati puppet" who had "dragged the country down to the worst it's ever been".

Korn released their last album, The Paradigm Shift, in October 2013. Though we’re not sure we can expect a Miley duet at any point in the near future.
