A rare performance video of the pre-KORN band L.A.P.D. (short for LOVE AND PEACE DUDE) has been posted online at YouTube.

According to Amazon.com, L.A.P.D. consisted of "where-is-he-now vocalist Richard Morales and current KORN members James 'Munky' Shaffer, Reginald 'Fieldy' Arvizu, and David Silveria (contrary to popular belief, Brian 'Head' Welch wasn't an official member). So it's essential listening for anyone who loves KORN. Does it sound anything like KORN, you may ask? Hell no. L.A.P.D. aren't exactly original, and listening to this album is like a time-warp, back to the late '80s/early '90s. They combine all the obvious influences such as RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES and FAITH NO MORE, and throw in a little bit of old-school METALLICA for good measure."

That was pretty interesting. I would've preferred the song be "Don't Label Me", but that was pretty cool. I have a compilation album of LAPD, which also stood for "Laughing As People Die" later on during the life of the band. Now, get a Sexart video, and that would be awesome.
