Controversial Videos of the Moment #127

Hickey Underworld – Blonde Fire

I’ve been umming and arring about posting this video for some time. It’s certainly not for the faint hearted (at all) with plenty of cruelty implied, but it certainly does what music videos have done for a while – pushing the boundaries. I quite like the song, agreeing with their statement on their youtube page of “pure rock violence, extremely loud, but without ditching the melody.” Let us know in the comments what you think of it.


This is a Shakedown – Circles

Not as controversial this one, but still banned from TV (due to the strobes that can induce epileptic seizures!), the video was made using 21 borrowed Apple Mac Books, and is another video that pushes boundaries, though on a more traditional, technical / IT level. Let us know what you think in the comments below.
