Welcome to random Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of a random Wikipedia page every day.
Our random article today is Voodoo (song).
"Voodoo", written by lead singer Sully Erna, is a single by alternative metal band Godsmack from their self-titled album. The song "Voodoo" was best known for its use in the MTV television program Fear.
The video, directed by Dean Karr, shows witches performing a ritual with swords. The band is shown throughout the video playing in a corn field. A naked gorgon is shown dancing which is also part of the ritual. Zombies come out of a lake and wander through the woods. The video features Laurie Cabot and members of her coven at that time.
The idea of zombies came from the original inspiration of the song. At the House of Blues, vocalist Sully Erna stated that this inspiration was the film The Serpent and the Rainbow.
The song was also used by WWE wrestler Batista during his time as Leviathan in the former WWE developmental territory Ohio Valley (OVW) from 2000 to 2002.
“Voodoo” is the final track on the album. After roughly two minutes of silence, a hidden track (entitled "Witch Hunt") closes the album. Although "Voodoo" itself is 4:40 in length, the actual length (including the aforementioned silence and the hidden track "Witch Hunt") is 9:02.
This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 20:46 UTC on Tuesday, 19 September 2017.
