Weekend Music Video

Nine Inch Nails - Closer

This is what music videos were made for. Much more than just the musical aspect of a song, it's the visual impact of what the artist is trying to convey that really drives home the message. Few musicians came as close to "nailing it" as Trent Reznor.

u.s.s.r. funk,
Thanks for visiting and commenting on the blog. I actually went to see Audioslave at the Warfield on March 19,2003; right around the time when the war machine decided to invade Iraq and shove democracy down their unwilling throats. When I came out of the BART station to go to the concert, there were helicopters flying overhead, cops everywhere, and people marching in the streets. During the concert, Tom Morello got on the mic and told us what a great city we live in. He said he was out marching with the war protesters right before the concert started! I'll check out the video on youtube. Thanks for the tip, dude.

If you're not familiar with the Richard Cheese cover of this song, it's classic:

working class hero is awesome, both versions are worth note, so you should post both!Plus both have John Lennon in them! you saw Audioslave in 2003? man i hate you now, especially since that they broke up!But of course Rage Against the Machine is back! shoving democracy down their throats? couldn't have said it better myself, is this a reoccurring theme?

FuzzFlash sez...

'Ullo PTCruiser, popped over to have a squizz at your site after your comments on Existentialist Cowboy blogspot.

I first became aware that NIN were something special when my 23 y.o. daughter went quietly apeshit when her friend failed to come across with promised tickets to an upcoming gig of theirs. Now I know why. Never laid peepers on them till moments ago and thought their clip was extraordinary.
My darlin' girl got into Marilyn Manson many years ago. I rather liked his version of "Sweet Dreams Are Made Of This" but apart from that knew absolutely nothing. (The movie "Mean Girls" taught me that under no circumstances should parents admire what teens are into, especially in front of their peers) . When I first "saw" Mr. Manson, he was sitting on a trailer floor being interviwed by Michael Moore in the film "Bowling for Columbine".

By the end of their chat,I knew that Ms Flash had good taste in artists. After this epiphany with NIN I'm convinced it's truly excellent. Mind you, Chez Fuzz of yore, always espoused strong "Addams Family Values".

Fuzz,
Welcome to my blog and mucho thanks for commenting.

I'm in total agreement with you. I really like a lot of the stuff my own daughter listens to. (Not in front of her friends, of course)
