New Sytem of a Down video

System of a Down have released their latest video to B.Y.O.B. (bring your own bombs). It is shockingly powerful video which I will be surprised if MTV plays (but, I will never know since I don't watch MTV). Click here to watch it (on QT- or find it on News section of SOAD's page). Click here for Real Video.

Warning it has potentially offensive images (if you find stormtroopers with the words "truth" and "obey" marching through the streets of a city and arresting party goers). There are also explicit lyrics (anger- not sexual). If you have not heard it, this song is about the War in Iraq and has the lyric, "when presidents fight the war, why do they always send the poor."

For your entertainment value and to make us all think about the hidden costs of our lust for oil, Empire and power (which, I admit are normal human emotions).

An interesting video. Was it just me or does the singer look like he's out of an 80's glam rock band with the hair and all? I could have sworn he looked like an 80's cross between Alice Cooper and Gene Simmons sans make-up.

Dig the tune though.
