Korn Refuse to Use BP Oil for Their Tour Bus
Rockers Korn have banned their tour bus drivers from using BP oil when they fill up at the pump as a mark of protest about the Gulf of Mexico oil slick. Like all Americans, the group is sickened by the spill from the exploded BP rig which has now been declared the worst environmental disaster in U.S. history.
And the bandmates have chosen to show their disgust by turning their backs on British Petroleum this summer. The band has launched a boycott against using the company's gasoline while on tour - and the rockers are strongly encouraging other touring artists to do the same.
Frontman Jonathan Davis says, "The daily images are hard to watch. We need to do our part to let BP know there are consequences for causing something like this. We want to send a message to corporations like BP so that they will take more preventative measures in the future."
"The more costly their punishment, the more money they will spend to make sure disasters like this don't happen again. It's plain and simple capitalism." Ironically, the video for the California band's new single, "Oildale (Leave Me Alone)", features a landscape dotted with rigs. Korn will headline the third annual Rock Star Energy Drink Mayhem Festival throughout the summer.
