SALT LAKE CITY--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--Gigg.com is excited to announce a new online contest with metal band Korn giving fans a chance to share what the lyrics from their new song "Never Never" means to them. From Oct. 15 to Nov. 15, 2013, fans can use the gigg mobile app, available on iOS and Android platforms, to share lyrics and hashtags expressing what they feel is the meaning behind the mega-band's new song, while adding hashtags, pictures and even video clips to their posts.
“People love to express themselves with music”
"People love to express themselves with music," says gigg CEO Scott Warner. "This contest will give Korn fans a great way to add their own style to the song, while introducing a whole new group of fans to the band's unique and amazing talent. I'm a big fan of Korn and excited to see all the creative posts that will show up this week in our app."
You can download the free gigg app in the App Store on iOS and from the Android Market on Android. Once logged in, users can search for lyrics from millions of songs in the gigg database, and create posts that will include a song preview and link to buy the MP3.
During the week, for every unique user that "likes" a qualified "Never Never," a point will be awarded to the posting fan. Points will be tallied on a live leaderboard at gigg.com/lyric_contest/korn. The user with the most points at the end of the contest will win two tickets to a Korn concert of their choice, a signed deluxe edition of their new album "The Paradigm Shift," a merchandise pack with posters, stickers and more, and a 10 minute Skype call with a member of the band.
The top 25 video posts will be compiled into a special "Never Never" music video that will be displayed on Korn's YouTube channel, as well as gigg's YouTube channel at YouTube.com/gigglife.
The top 25 picture posts will be compiled into a special poster and sent to each of the winning users featured in that poster.
