I chose this song, Franco Unamerican by NoFX, because I was into it last year, and not particularly for political means. The images are taken from Google Images, the highest ranked result for each word in the lyrics, except in the three bridges where there’s no lyrics. For these I used two refactored images which are included elsewhere in the video in their original state, and a short montage of Dubya.
The song is a product of the culture of the U.S. left in 2004, which in turn builds upon and influences this culture, in a self perpetuating loop. The images are simply snapshots of this culture, a fingerprint of the song, and of culture itself.
This video is part of a larger project involving snapshots of culture.
