Music video as a political medium

October 27, 2004

Eminem apparently has dropped a new joint (as the kids say) called Mosh that’s all up in yo’ mix about the election and gettin’ rid of Dubya. Go vote for it on MTV TRL. But first, take a gander at it here (47 MB!). It’s actually a pretty damn good video. Here’s an excerpt:

Don’t matter what color, all that matters is we gathered together
To celebrate for the same cause, no matter the weather
If it rains let it rain, yea the wetter the better
They ain’t gonna stop us, they can’t, we’re stronger now more then ever,
They tell us no we say yea, they tell us stop we say go,
Rebel with a rebel yell, raise hell we gonna let em know
Stomp, push up, mush, fuck Bush, until they bring our troops home

And as we proceed, to mosh through this desert storm, in these closing statements, if they should argue, let us beg to differ, as we set aside our differences, and assemble our own army, to disarm this weapon of mass destruction that we call our president, for the present, and mosh for the future of our next generation, to speak and be heard, Mr. President, Mr. Senator, (can you hear us?)

P.S. Wouldn’t you think that Em could relate to W. since they both hate homosexuals? Guess not.
