Korn Gets No Love From ‘Silent Hill’ Fans

Posted by on June 9, 2011

It’s been announced that Korn are composing the theme song to the video game Silent Hill: Downpour. More details about the song, which is believed to be simply called “Silent Hill,” will be revealed soon while the game will be released this coming Winter. Though we haven’t even heard a snippet of the song, fans of the survival horror video game series are already voicing their displeasure about the news. In fact, a group of fans have gone as far as to launch an online petition to stop the pairing.

The online petition called “No Korn in Silent Hill : Downpour” posted the following open letter to developers Konami and Vatra Games:

“Most Silent Hill fans are extremely sad to see that it has been decided to use Korn to make their theme song in the upcoming Silent Hill : Downpour.

There is many reasons for this, a nu metal band simply does not belong in silent hill and especially not one that deals with teenage angst themes, that is not what silent hill is or will ever be and a nu metal band that was cool in the late 90′s and early 00′s will do no good for silent hill as a game.

“Neither will it do much good for the games reputation, we have already seen gaming journalists with headlines like “Barf! Korn to do Silent Hill: Downpour’s theme song”, some people say bad press is better than no press but do we really want the silent hill franchise to be known as the game people make fun of or the deep and amazing experience we usually know it for? Korn has never done anything that is remotely fitting for the silent hill atmosphere and represents everything that Silent Hill isn’t.

We don’t know if it’s Vatra who has made this decision or if it’s Konami pushing it on them but it’s sad and shows a complete lack of respect for the fans and we hope that Konami will very unlikely cancel this deal they made with Korn or at the very least show our disapproval with this. We hope that Silent Hill Downpour is a quality title but the news of Korn as the main theme makers makes us believe that Konami don’t understand silent hill or its fanbase one bit, the silent hill fanbase is very dedicated and don’t take news like this very lightly, reading silent hill forums and facebook pages shows a collective depression among fans.

Please Konami, show some respect for silent hill and the fans and don’t have Korn do the main theme for Silent Hill : Downpour.”

Maybe we’re the last people to talk about video games (we’re more board game players ourselves), but we’re still not entirely sure why it’s so awful that Korn are recording the theme song even after reading the open letter. The vague open letter reads like it was written by whiny gamers with poor grammar skills. And after watching the trailer for Silent Hill: Downpour, we’re actually somewhat convinced that Korn might be a good choice to compose a theme for the video game. Where are we wrong on this?

As of this posting, 278 signatures have been collected for the online petition. We’ll keep you posted if more develops.

    Honestly I think Korn is perfect for this they are experts in making creepy or weird kind of songs. Maybe if you don’t like Korn’s music I can understand your disapproval but it’s only a title song it doesn’t play while you are in the middle of the game so it’s not that big of a deal.

  • Hexen525

    This is a joke, right? KoRn can do miricles for this game. I love KoRn and I love the Silent Hill series. I see no reason for them NOT to be together. Jonathan Davis has already proven he can do a powerful soundtrack, go look at Queen of the Damned. While a terrible movie, the soundtrack kicked serious ass!!!

  • http://Pred.com Trent

    Listen to any music from the previous Silent Hill games and you’ll see why it’s wrong. I like Korn, but I don’t want them anywhere near Silent Hill.

  • Me

    Imagine Slayer doing a tribute to Michael Jackson, or Weird Al singing “Fucking Hostile”. Imagine Pagliacci starring Prince or Johnny Knoxville as Hannibal Lechter. That’s Korn in Silent Hill to fans. Neither half of those pairings are bad, and they may even pull it off to some degree. They just don’t belong together and unless the new studio making it knows something a lot of devoted fans don’t, it shows they’re not of the mindset to be adding to the Silent Hill lore.

    Better KoRn than Kid Rock, I guess. Or limp bizkit.
    Definitely better KoRn than limp bizkit.

  • Yuki

    I’m not a fan of KoRn, or even metal in general, and I think KoRn’s a weird fit for Silent Hill. Considering that the music in the previous games is a bit more subdued than KoRn’s style, it’s a strange choice, but it’s totally possible they’ll change their style a little bit to fit Silent Hill better. I think the people screaming that it’s ruining the series are overreacting because it’s only the theme for the opening cinematic/advertisements, it’s an attempt to bring in more fans, and for all we know, it’ll be decent.

    Also, man, even if I did support the petition (which I don’t)… could they at least have typed it better?

  • Matt

    Okey, I am glad that you guys wrote about this matter pertinently(Cough.. metal.. cough.. sucks.net). But I got to say, that if you haven’t really played the game and truly understood it, you can’t really get why the fans are whining about it. To me they are really immersive and profound games, and KoRn making the main theme for the newest installment.. is really going to break the immersion for me. I suppose that there is a chance for KoRn to make a decent main theme, but only if they have played the games thoroughly and will make an good effort in making the song sound really different what we have used to hear from KoRn. PS.The grammar skills of the writer isn’t really the thing we should be focusing on. He supposedly isn’t speaking english for his native language, and nor do I, if some of you were tempted to whine about my grammar skills too.

    “Listen to any music from the previous Silent Hill games and you’ll see why it’s wrong. I like Korn, but I don’t want them anywhere near Silent Hill”.

    Yeah! it’s true, the entire soundtrack made by Yamaoka just don’t fit in any “survival horrors” game. His music is like taking a walk by the beach in the morning. Very, very inappropriate for a game like this and have been a shame along almost the entire saga.
    Sorry for the bad english.

    I don’t see why at all anyone could say that Korn would be a good choice, or that they are “experts” in making creepy music.I think for something likr Silent Hill, someone like Massive Attack(Listen to Teardrop, the original House themesong, or Butterfly Caught) or Wumpscut, or hell, even go more mainstream and use Nine Inch Nails. I have played every Silent Hill and think that this is just an attempt to get more acceptance from the mainstream gamers as Resident Evil did when they went from survival horror to shoot-em-up action. And as for the poll above about which fanbase is dumber, Korn fans by far. They have shitty music and created a trend that allowed many “numetal” bands to break out and get popular, such a shame….

  • JOhNy

    This is horrible. I don’t like Korn, but that is beside the point. There style of music does not fit silent hill at all. If the person that wrote this article actually listened to the sound tracks of silent hill 1-4, they would realize why fans are complaining. Completely different style from Korn.

    I LOVE Silent Hill and Korn is my favorite band.
    I don’t mind the it. I’m wondering what it sounds like.
    I just wish SH would bring back more of the old style SH music/sounds that were in SH 1, 2, 3, and zero. The most recent ones aren’t that great as far as scary monster theme music.

    To all the haters:

    Everybody stop your damn bitching! like the artical said you haven’t even heard the song yet, I’m a fan of both SH and Korn and so keeping an open mind like an adult I’m interested in hearing how it will turn out. If any of you were true fans you would give it a chance instead of being so closeted.

    Can get the same effect by turning the bass to 10 and volume to 100, just let it blare in your ear, nonsensical ramblings.

    I love SH, and like some metal. And as a true fan of the SH series, I KNOW this is a shitty combo. And this article proves that if you like something (in this case, it’s metal for you), follow it blindly, even if you know Jack shit about what and why it’s being protested against, you said it yourselves, you aren’t gamers, so don’t start saying that this seems like a good fit. You dipshits.

  • Alexdhamp

    Idiots that think metal doesn’t match, or never will, Silent Hill need to listen to Angel’s Thanatos from Silent Hill 2… <.<

  • Brandon

    Any true fan isn’t going to NOT play downpour because they don’t like theme-song. We.re talking video games; would you ever listen to a video game theme song at a bar, club or party? that’s because noone has ever heard of or gives a shit about the band that did the song and will never ever be heard from again.
    However, people know Korn.

  • fukorn

    We’ll have to face that Silent Hill oficially died with Homecoming. Downpour is just another “sequel” trying to improve something that can so easily be screwed up, now that Akira is gone. Korn hasn’t got a bit of the essence Silent Hill should deliver and I think is the essential part why players keep coming back for more. Let’s see if that happens from now on.

  • hmh

    This is an old post but fuck it I’m commenting anyways”Where are we wrong on this?”The hardcore fans have grown really attached to the work of Akira Yamaoka, the guy who’s been making the music since the first game. He isn’t working on the series anymore. A lot of people think his music is what MAKES Silent Hill. The entire series is really well known among gamers for its atmosphere. Even with the games that weren’t outstanding and lost a lot of what people loved about the original games, they still “felt” like silent hill, and I think most of that was due to his music. To the fans, fucking with the music and taking it in a completely different direction basically takes away the last remaining part of what they consider “real” silent hill.If you look up his music and compare it to Korn’s, you can immediately see the difference. To be fair, if it were any other horror game, I think it would have been a great theme song…it just doesn’t “fit” for what silent hill has always been. If that makes sense.Basically imagine your all-time favorite metal band losing its main vocalist. For months the band’s PR group tells fans that they’re going to find a suitable replacement that fits the band perfectly. They get someone who is really popular with another genre of music, but does not even remotely fit into your idea of what the band sounds like, what the band “is”. There’s bound to be at least a bit of disappointment and hesitation regarding whatever new music they put out. Same concept with silent hill.

  • Pingback: Korn’s Theme Song For “Silent Hill: Downpour” Featured In New Trailer | Metal Insider

  • Balboa

    First and foremost, Korn is not nu-metal. Furthermore, they have remained relevant throughout the years and have transcended the dynamics of the ridiculous label people have chosen to throw at them (“nu-metal”). I love how having lyrics in maybe two or three songs which stem from Jonathan Davis’ teen years–though they’re about totally different things–constitutes the constant generalizations. Seriously, why can’t people just know what they’re talking about? Year after year after year passes and it’s the same tired lies, exaggerations and generalizations spewed from those who are completely ignorant and uninformed.

    Korn’s lyrics and overall atmosphere is NOT a fitting theme for silent hill. its the exact opposite of what silent hill is about.

    AMBIENT. CREEPY. MUSIC. THAT. IS. SLOW. UNDULATING. AND RYTHMIC AND SOFT. SOFT. 

    really now. metal? metal. completely the opposite. Throbbing gristle would’ve been a better choice. Hell, Kraftwerk or even BRIAN ENO would have been a better choice. HELL even elton john or bach. but Korn? no. no no no no. that’s just an insult to the entire game AND Korn. yes. have they sunk that low? thats like going to an anime convention to promote how good fiber is for your colon. korn is just in it for the money. they dont know they’re ruining their reputation that’s crumbling all around them.

  • Jmanny

    Listen to Room of Angel, the theme for silent hill 4 and you might get a clearer picture as to why people are saying that korn is a poor fit for this game, that and I completely agree with what hmh says.

  • Kam

      Since the article takes up the most space on the page, I would like to make my defense for the Silent Hill fans since the writer was obviously too caught up in his disillusionment that Korn was a good choice that he did not portray anyone’s opinions but his own. He has insulted, disregarded opinions of, and ignored the history of Silent Hill fans.

      Let me start by asking a question. What if you had your favorite metal band do songs for a video game where the music they played fit the game plot and made the trailer look good? You would probably say that this is awesome and you think they should continue the course. Now, what if your favorite metal band was replaced by a slower paced rock band that didn’t fit the plot whatsoever, made the trailer look poor, and the people who like the initial band were angry too? You would most likely be outraged if this were to happen. How is this hypothetical scenario any different than what is actually going on here? The theme songs often described the games as a whole, people liked the music so much it became a staple in the series since the third game, and made previous fans want to play the game. By changing the theme song for the game, Korn is destroying the tradition of Silent Hill by playing a different style of music and not fitting the song to the game instead. The song Angel’s Thanatos in Silent Hill 2 was indeed, technically metal. However, it was not a main theme and was chosen by the musical composer because he thought it fit the moment. This was back when Silent Hill didn’t even have a main theme and IT WAS INTENDED to fit the moment unlike Korn.

      Next off, the writer goes for a character attack on the writers of the petition. This is a low blow by anyone’s standards and only make him disreputable. Since I am debating his logic, I will state how he is wrong. He describes the writers as “whiny gamers with poor grammar skills”. To anyone who obviously has not seen the internet before, it is a digital realm where people may comment with lax linguistic standards. The fellows that were insulted by the writer did not need to write properly for no standards they knew of were being held against them. If this were really the time to argue on grammar, I could point out and say that “it’s” is not a contraction of ” it has”. This was in the first sentence of the article by the writer. Not only did the writer attack the lingual standards of the people, he called them whiny just for having a contrary opinion to his. Were the colonists whiny for wanting independence for America? Were the Jews whiny because they were being killed for being who they are? Were the families of 9/11 whiny for crying that their friends and or family members have died? I say NO! To complain is to show your opinion of dislike on something and creates volition for the people around the person to stand up and fight for a cause.

      My last reason is that the writer of this article, as well anyone else writing for this website, has no right to even begin to criticize the people for disagreeing since they themselves have said, quote, “we’re the last people to talk about video games”. By saying this, they most likely have no idea what Silent Hill even is. This is a news site on metal music, not video gaming. The writer probably has never even touched a Silent Hill game before in his life. Where does he come off thinking he can just spew his trash talk on players of Silent Hill? This sort of thing can only be classified as “arrogance” or “ego”. The writer should go back to his board games if this is true.

      I think it can be plainly seen by all that the writer is an arrogant, egotistical, uneducated on Silent Hill moron with a keyboard. To answer the question the writer asked at the end of the article (where was he wrong), you ignored the musical taste of the games to boast Korn, insulted a few petitioners who used their freedom of speech to disagree, and even said yourself the people who work for this site are not gamers of any sort. Zach Shaw (writer), stay out of critiquing video games… forever.

    I think that Korn maybe not apropiado for this game but one thinkim sure Korn give the trailer to much creepy

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Bruno-Martins/100002135831079 Bruno Martins

    Terrible idea. Akira Yamaoka’s music was the most precious and unique aspect of thegame. His themes were always fantastic (“Silent Hill” for SH1, “Theme of Laura” for SH2, “You’re not here” for SH3 and “Room of Angels” (a fan favorite) for SH4).

  • Qaspero

    1. “However, it was not a main theme and was chosen by the musical composer because he thought it fit the moment. This was back when Silent Hill didn’t even have a main theme and IT WAS INTENDED to fit the moment unlike Korn.”
    Can you say “hair-splitter”? Not to mention that the Korn song will play during the perfectly skippable attract mode screen.

    2. I’m sure that the 9/11 families and Holocaust survivors would greatly appreciate you comparing their plights to SUCKY MUSIC IN A VIDEO GAME.

    3. You’re really using the one-sided “freedom of speech” defense? When Shaw was clearly practicing that same freedom in insulting the haters? Many of whom have gladly insulted Korn, “Downpour,” and Vatra in far worse ad-hominem attacks? But I guess those insults are okay because they’re on your side.

    4. From Dictionary.com:
    it’s  [its]  Show IPA1. contraction of “it is”:  “It’s starting to rain.”2. contraction of “it has”: “It’s been a long time.”

    Methinks you’ve been wearing your nostalgia goggles a little too tightly for way too long.

    Then I’d say to listen to SH3′s theme. Each game has a different feel. Why hasn’t anyone considered that Korn’s sound was the best choice(in the game producer’s minds) for *this* SH..by being that it’s a theme for Murphy and what he’s going through. Just because it wouldn’t fit other SH’s doesn’t mean it won’t fit the new one with a character that’s apparently revenge-obsessed.

  • Tsomerville56

    “we’re actually somewhat convinced that Korn might be a good choice to compose a theme for the video game. Where are we wrong on this?”
    Yep, dead wrong- though I will agree that the letter could have been better articulated.  
    Jmanny on an earlier post said to listen to Room of Angels from Silent Hill 4 (one of my personal favorite Silent Hill songs) and I’d agree that that’s something more along the lines of what we were expecting.  Daniel Licht of Dexte fame is composing this game which is nice and I’ve heard one full song from the game which follows in Akira’s footsteps while still obviously being Licht’s.  As fans the majority of us were pleased when we heard that David was the replacement; as music (as well as general sound design) is such a large part of what creates the mood in the Silent Hill games.  

    Is the trailer bad with the Korn song?  In general terms, no, not really though it doesn’t feel like a Silent Hill opening (see openings for SIlent Hill 2, 3, & 4).  

    Anyway this isn’t the sort of thing I’d cry about & it only matters to me because it makes me feel weird enough about Downpour that I might grab the Silent Hill2/3 HD release instead.  I’ll wait on the game reviews for Downpour.     

  • Sheno

    Honestly I’m probably not considered a die hard snobby Silent Hill fan. No, Korn isn’t typical for the genre that is from Silent Hill.. but angsty? I’m sorry have none of the fans listened to some of the lyrics to over half of the Mary Elizabeth McGlynn songs? I would pay it little heed quite frankly, I bought it on iTunes only a moment or two ago and I love it.
    It’s just the elitist SH fans doing what they do best: complain. It’s a shame that this is what the fandom’s dissolved into.

  • Sheno

     Could not have said it better myself.

  • nofu

    Dumbass korn just doesn’t fit any silent hill game at all. Silent hill 3′s theme is another good example why korn wasn’t a particular good choice.

  • Herf

    You’ve got the right idea here. Konami shouldn’t listen to a single word any Silent Hill fan says about anything because, frankly, all they do is bitch about the new games not being Silent Hill 2. Look what happened when they finally gave in and remade 2; we got Homecoming.

  • Sheno

     I didn’t so much mind Homecoming for it’s story, but recently I have come to agree that it would have been better called something else instead of Silent Hill. But, it’s was a learning curve for them.
    I’ve watched some playthroughs of Downpour before I get my copy through and I really really like it. I think they’ve genuinely managed to recreate the ideal of a Silent Hill game in story and ironed out the gameplay kinks of the old ones.

    Most of the people saying that is “sucky music in a sh game” are more than likey the same people who jerk off the justin beiber. I for one like their SH song. It gives the opening trailor a very creepy feeling. As for it being the new SH theme, well thats just going a bit far. But if there is one thing SH needs that is a new curve. A new angle to look at and I think they acheived that in the new SH! Great job Kanomi!

    “There is many reasons for this, a nu metal band simply does not belong in ”WTF is this? really dumb people comes here to say that all fans doesnt want a metal band in the game, WHO said i dont?  They goona be joking, cuz the soundtrack of silent hill 2 its all made with metal band. 

  • vanessa

    I swear, the “true” silent hill fans will never be satisfied with newer silent hill games, no matter what, even if korn didn’t participate. People’s expectations are so high that nothing can live up to them. If old fans would just stop whining about every little thing, they might be able to appreciate the game a bit more. There’s nothing wrong with critiquing the game, maybe even stating some suggestions, but bitching and moaning is pointless.

  • thoughtless1

    fuck all hail korn bitches 2012 the end to the beginning start your silent hill dreaming the games are garbage go find something real to be upset about…… Peace love the green hair sheno

    You people have to be fucking kidding me? Did none of you listen to the credits? Not only metal, but country and what sounds like blues. I am a huge Silent Hill fan. I love the moods they create and the fact that I still get cold chills when I play the game. Not to mention kicking in my fight or flight sense (fight mostly). Korn fits just fine in the damn game. I grew up listening to Korn and when I heard the song they made for the game, I though to myself that that is the dopiest thing in the fucking world. Games must evolve to stay competitive. I should know I have been studying for the industry. Get over your snobby bs and just enjoy the game. There is nothing in the Silent Hill universe that says Korn wouldn’t be a good band to create a theme song for the game.

  • Anon

    I love metal, but anyone who says “korn in Silent Hill is not that bad” clearly does not know SHIT about Silent hill, I mean at least before writing something about it go listen to any of SH’s OST

  • BloodRain28268

    Seems to me like somebody just didn’t like KoRn at all, and decided to be a drama-queen about it. Did the writer know that KoRn would rock it like Mary Elizabeth McGlynn rocked “Room of Angel”? Or did he/she just not realize that Yamaoka left Konami in 2009? Or was he/she just worried about the journalists’ crapping on KoRn, making him/her feel like it was a sin (when, in reality, the media [likely] only made it a big deal because it wasn’t Bieber)? Despite what this writer believes, KoRn is obviously doing something right to be around since the 1990s, and still be selling their music. Seems like a pretty deep psychological rant going on there more than anything, in my opinion… I mean, the person blamed the developers because nobody else was there to point a finger at, even though it wasn’t Konami’s or Vatra’s fault that Yamaoka decided to follow the rest of Team Silent’s lead, leaving Konami to fend for itself. The game wasn’t exactly “normal” Silent Hill material anyway, what with all the mystery. Still, Downpour found itself as my favorite one (replacing SH4: The Room) due to its entertaining mysteriousness, and the fact that the “Surprise!” ending included my favorite villain, Pyramid Head (yes, I was disappointed that the non-scary “bogeyman” in the gas-mask had replaced the Red Devil, who always makes me afraid of venturing further — the thrill of Silent Hill is always the best part). Anyway, I really loved the song, and can’t understand why a fellow Silent Hill player would find it so horrendous… That would be like me finding Mary Elizabeth horrendous in SH4… It just doesn’t make sense!
