Feature Friday: Los Angeles is Burning

Like the Parable of the Sower, this Bad Religion video is set in a burning Los Angeles. Punk rock has long interested itself in political and social commentary–drawing attention to poverty, unemployment, corruption, hypocrisy, and questioning the status quo. Although often branded as self-destructive, violent, or anarchistic, much of the music reveals truths that many members of the establishment prefer to underplay or keep hidden.
