Brainwashed

  • This song is about the media, and how they are constantly feeding us crap and encouraging us to not think for ourselves. It takes on radio, with their insipid formats that limit the songs we hear (a valid concern in 1988), and also television, which seems to exist simply to sell us stuff we don't need. >>
