In reply to comment: I like Bowie (see in situ)

with NSA

i'm afraid of americans is truly prophetic. imagine it playing while showing closeups of clapper, feinstein, king, graham etc etc etc
instead of calling someone who changed the face of music and inspired countless artists who came after him a weirdo, why not do a rap version video of IAOA
with all the people i named and more?

Bowie describes the feelings behind the song:

It's not as truly hostile about Americans as say "Born in the U.S.A.": it's merely sardonic. I was traveling in Java when [its] first McDonald's went up: it was like, "for fuck's sake." The invasion by any homogenised culture is so depressing, the erection of another Disney World in, say, Umbria, Italy, more so. It strangles the indigenous culture and narrows expression of life.[2]
