Korn remixed a Rihanna track and it's amazing

Rihanna’s “Bitch Better Have My Money” is already in the running for song of summer.

Between its knocking trap beat, anthemic hook and the singer’s swagger – best seen in its accompanying not-safe-for-work video – we didn’t think the tune could go any further left.

We were wrong.

Korn (yes, Korn) just issued a remix to the track and the result is amazing.

The nu metal band turned the jam into one heck of a thrasher, with enough crushing guitar riffs to send a tingle down your spine and raise the hair on your arms.

Korn’s take is a brutal, fiery rager that nicely supports the aggressive lyrics of the track. It’s especially fitting considering the gory revenge fantasy video has been swirled in all kinds of controversy.

The original is still the better banger, but Korn’s remix will get you through a weekend of whatever debauchery you have planned.

And because we are such a fan of irony, it should be noted that the explicit single is up for two Teen Choice Awards, including Choice Party Song.

Turn up to the remix here. There’s a ton of cursing, but you knew that already.
