VH1 caught up with Korn frontman, Jonathan Davis about their latest single, "Ya'll Want a Single", and how it's been surprisingly popular with fans and more.

We were sitting there just looking at each other and we were like, 'OK we've got to write this single,' and we started laughing," singer Jonathan Davis recalled backstage at KROQ-FM's recent Almost Acoustic Christmas show. "And we came up with this anti-single, which turned out great."

Ironically, their anti-single has struck such a chord with fans that Korn have decided to release it as the next single. The song is strangely catchy, and part of the appeal has to be the honesty behind the lyrics. "Y'all want a single say f--- that," is the oft-repeated chorus, while one verse finds Davis singing, "They think we're all the same/ And always we're to blame/ For sh-- I think is lame/ It's time to stop the game."

The song is even a favorite among the execs at Korn's label and management. "They always laugh," Davis said. "It's just funny, like, 'Oh, dude!' this and that, but nothing really [too offensive]. No hard feelings."
