And they say there are no modern protest songs?

Serj Tankian of System Of A Down's take on the "War on Terror"...

-- Badtux the Music Penguin


  1. Yeah, when I saw that late night, I was openmouthed, in awe. Too many of our modern artists tiptoe around to not affect their income.

    I had to defend (uh, well i defended him anyway) Serj on Alternet from Libs who thought he wasnt .. whatever- enough. This video just sayst it all.

    Glad to see you linking it, BT, you mtv generation penguin, you

  2. Thanks but I predate MTV by a few years. Heck I remember when MTV even played music videos LOL!

    This is one song where the video+song is far more powerful than the song by itself. The neo-cons see the whole "war on terror" thing as a game. Nobody dies in their little world, it's just play. They're big kids in a playground. Except the soldiers they send out are real, and the people they kill don't just stand back up at the end of the day and skip out of the playground to go home to eat dinner. But it's all a game to the neo-cons... all a game. Bastards.

    My eyes are just watering, btw. That's all.
