IF YOU STAB YOURSELF IN THE EYES AND EARS, THE NEW METALLICA VIDEO IS ACTUALLY PRETTY ENJOYABLE
Back when the video for “One” came out, it seemed like Metallica had an understanding – and fear – of the horrors of war. That clip might’ve been heavy-handed, but it felt like a legitimate political statement, as well a visual expression of the song.
The band’s new video for “The Dick that Never Came,” on the other hand, just feels exploitative – like one of those propaganda videos Kid Rock is currently starring in for the National Guard.
So here’s the Metallica video… as a bonus, check out the recockulous Kid Rock/National Guard appeal to white trash who see some connection between NASCAR and Iraq after the jump.
