While looking up videos for last week’s entry (I had to get a replacement video for Stone Temple Pilot’s Sour Girl since the youtubes are keeping it non-embedable and no other site was working) for some reason NWA’s Straight out of Compton came to mind. I didn’t remember it too well, but I definitely didn’t remember all the cop imagery at all. Then I thought, why not do some themed music Videos. So lets start with that.
NWA – Straight out of Compton
Most folks probably don’t remember NWA (Niggaz Wit Attitude) BUT YOU SHOULD! Lets do the line up here: Eazy-E, Dr. Dre, DJ Yella, Arabian Prince, Ice Cube, and MC Ren. Damn. That’s some heat in that group. But aside from the we hate the po-po message, this makes for some good urban youth drama from the late 80s. And you won’t find any auto-tune bullshit coming from Compton.
Beastie Boys – Sabotage
Aw yeah! Copsplotation. Couldn’t be having a police edition of music video’s without including the King of all Cop music videos. That’s right, you fuck up and the Beasties will be there to fuck your shit up in their 70s dirty italian detective moustaches and pushing a snub nose in your face. This video leaks awesome every second of it. I dare you to find one shitty second. You know where you’ll find it? THE LAST SECOND WHEN IT ENDS.
Chemical Brothers – Out of Control
It’s a War. It’s a Revolution. It’s an Oppresive Police State. It’s a Cola Ad? Yeah to hell with rioting, everyone just wants to chill with an ice-cold Viva Cola. 100% Chemical too!
Also want to give a big shout out to ANGRY ZEN MASTER who has his own Friday special going on about short films, so you best go out and see the great stuff he’s finding out there.
