"Another Brick" to appear on greatest hits album

Rap-rock band Korn has recorded Pink Floyd's "Another Brick in the Wall." The song, recorded in May, will appear on a greatest hits compilation to be released this fall.

Recently, the band has included the song in its live European shows. "We tried it in Hannover, Germany," Korn's Jonathan Davis told MTV News. "Kids were out there throwing their Xs up, from the movie. It was surprising to see how many young kids know Pink Floyd and know all the words to that song.

"Pink Floyd's an amazing band," he adds. "They always set a mood. The movie 'The Wall' is amazing. There were three versions of it on the original album, so we made it into one long song with 'Goodbye Cruel World' at the end."

The album will also include a new recording of Public Enemy's "Fight the Power." The band will make a video for whichever song is determined to be the album's first single.

New York City-based Scissor Sisters recently covered "Comfortably Numb," also from "The Wall." The dance track charted in the U.K. this past winter.

Korn was formed in Bakersfield, Calif., in 1992. The band has released six albums.
