This video is NSFW, but when you get home you should check it out and see if you can connect the bizarre visuals to the song’s apparent lyrical connection to Joe Louis fighting the best boxers in Nazi Germany and fascist Italy. The song takes a condescending, yet inspiring, perspective: “if you learn one thing, you’ve learned it well / It’s true, you must give fascists hell.”
