Videodrone was a five piece Synth rock band from California, USA. Originally Cradle of Thorns, the band put out one record on Korn's Elementree Records.
Formed from the ashes of Cradle of Thorns, the members of Videodrone had been playing together since 1988. After the group parted ways with Chris O'Brain, the band was renamed (taken from the cult classic film Videodrome). A twelve track CD was released in 1999 with notable appearances from Korn's Jonathan Davis on "Ty Jonathan Down" and Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst on "Human PiÃ±ata". Also from Korn, Head played guitar on "Power Tools For Girls" and Fieldy did production on the album. Vocalist Ty Elam was in the band Sexart along with Jonathan Davis and Ryan Shuck, who would go on to play for Orgy, another one-time Elementree Records band. Drummer Kris Kohls went on to play for Adema after Videodrone's demise in 2000.
