onathan Davis Unveils Hidden Recording of His Son in Korn’s ‘A.D.I.D.A.S

In a video interview with Adidas Originals, Jonathan Davis revealed that he incorporated his son’s audio in Korn’s ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ Discussing the influence of Adidas in inspiring the creation of ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.,’ the singer shared:

“It started with nothing. I think I began with a riff, and we just went with it. It was the second record, and I wrote this song. The acronym for it was ‘All Day I Dream About Sex,’ but it could mean a million different things. You could say sports. But it’s just very immature and juvenile, and it really represented where we were at that point in time. I can’t believe Adidas approved that.”

Adding a Personal Element to the Song

Davis went on to disclose a lesser-known tidbit that might pique the interest of fans, revealing: “In that song, when I performed it, if you listen closely, my first-born son Nathan was between my legs. In the breakdown, you can hear him cooing in the background.”

Selecting the Tracksuit Ensemble

In October, Adidas Originals and Korn unveiled a new collaboration and collection, commemorating their enduring partnership. Three decades ago, the California alt-metal band revolutionized the music scene by donning Adidas three-stripes tracksuits, leaving an indelible mark on their style and inspiring fans, as seen in ‘A.D.I.D.A.S.’ Jonathan Davis acknowledged that the choice of Adidas tracksuits was influenced in part by Run-DMC. Expanding on this, Davis explained:

“It was also about Korn, from the start, going against the grain and embracing rebellion. Even from the band’s name, we defied the traditional expectations of a rock band. So, to go in the opposite direction, at a time when everyone was clad in edgy leather, we opted for sportswear [laughs].”

The Cultural Blend 

He went on to provide further insight into their style, stating: “It embodied that old B-boy essence from New York. While most guys were immersed in hair metal during the ’80s, I was drawn to old-school hip-hop and the vibe of New York. It was all about the dancing, B-boy culture, influenced by Run-DMC. That’s why I opted for the tracksuit.”

In a conversation in November, Brian Welch delved into their recent collaboration with Adidas. He shared that the band had a longstanding affinity for Adidas and had attempted to partner with them in 1997, though their proposal was turned down. Subsequently, they joined forces with Puma. Years later, some Adidas employees who were ardent Korn fans pitched the idea once more, and this time, Adidas embraced it, bringing the band’s dream collaboration to fruition.
