Listen to Korn's Unplugged Performance + F11 and Modest Mouse!

MTV2 proudly presents a stripped-down, intimate performance from Jonathan Davis and company featuring special guests Amy Lee (on "Freak On A Leash") and Robert Smith of The Cure (on "Make Me Bad/In Between Days"). Other highlights include a cover of Radiohead's pre-weird era "Creep" and orchestrations by music producer Richard Gibbs. Some of the instrumentation featured in said orchestra consists of trombone, cello, glass harmonica, choir bells, and Japanese taiko drums. Be on the lookout for the television debut of the big night this Friday on MTV2. Korn MTV Unplugged hits shelves on March 6.

Listen/Watch/Share this unique experience by a band not known for their inviting warmth.

But why stop there? MTV2, in a generous double shot of new album streams, offers up the Finger Eleven effort "Them vs. You vs. Me," including the video for lead single "Paralyzer". MTV refers to this new work as dance rock (territory usually reserved for the likes of Arctic Monkeys or Franz Ferdinand), which would be an unusual but intriguing turn for the Canadian hard rockers. Judge for yourself here.

And since we're all about threesomes here at AtD (hey, who isn't?), why not rock out your day just a little bit more with the music video for Modest Mouse's "Dashboard". The first single from their highly anticipated new record, "We Were Dead Before The Ship Even Sank," the video was directed by Motion Theory (Matisyahu, Beck, Velvet Revolver) and the scene shows a drunken argument involving sailors. Modest Mouse's new album drops March 20.
