No Korn in Silent Hill : Downpour sign now

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.

    Es indignante que una obra de arte como lo es el concepto "Silent Hill" se vaya degradando cada vez por vender mбs copias. Vean lo que paso con "Resident Evil" y aprendan de esa experiencia ajena. Country Mexico

    Korn is a great band which I listened to when I was about 16 years old. Now I'm 24 and I find Korn's music pretty childish. When I first saw the trailer with the Korn music I was pretty shocked. The song is ok but it doesn't fit with Silent Hill. I'm sure

    Korn???! Over Akira Yamaoka? I feel betrayed by Konami's recent decisions. I've been a fan of Silent Hill since the first game for Playstation 1. This series was beautiful and something completely unlike anything else. This series has touched many lives a
