VOD: "Los Angeles is Burning"

In the lead-up to the August music special, each video of the day will highlight a SoCal oriented music video. Here's today's pick:

Using fire-ridden Southern California as a backdrop for social criticism, Bad Religion rages against what it considers to be the wrongs of the main stream media. In "Los Angeles is Burning," a typical southland wildfire is raging through urban Los Angeles. Using this created scenario, Bad Religion shows how it thinks the media would respond and criticizes its subsequent actions.

"This is not a test
Of the emergency broadcast system
Where Malibu fires and radio towers
Conspire to dance again
And I cannot believe the media mecca
They're only trying to peddle reality,
Catch it on prime time, story at nine
The whole world is going insane."

"The flames are stunning
The cameras running
So take warning."
