Rockin' The Suburbs (Ben Folds) Easter Egg - Rockin' the Suburbs Subliminal Message
Somewhere in the video, there is a KORN SUCKS that flashes for an instant.
The story goes like this:
Ben saw Korn on the cover of Spin with a headline reading, ‘Korn Takes On The Wusses’.
Ben thought, ‘Wow, that’s pretty cool. They’re taking on wusses’, and invested his three or four dollars in a copy. When he opened up the pages he saw in bold type something to the effect of, ‘Ben Folds Five sucks. They sound like Cheers music,’ (which Ben said he took as a compliment by the way).
Apparently, he and his band mates were the wusses they were referring to. Ben saw the bright side of things though. ‘You have to kiss a lot of ass to get in that magazine and they did it for me. I got my name in there without having to do anything.’ According to Mr. Folds, comments like these have gotten him permanently banned from Spin Magazine who has refused to ever print his name again.
It’s nice they can print whatever they want about you but if you say anything about them then they say, (spoken in a little kid pouting tone), ‘We’re not going to put you in our magazine anymore,’ ‘But, I’m doing fine. I’m still here.’
