My Nightly Middle Finger to MTV
I meant to put this up last night as the pefect complement to the Message from Satan, but as it turned out, I had a thing.
The first single from A Perfect Circle's debut album, Mer de Noms, could very well be the most sacreligious four minutes ever unleashed on the music-buying public.
Ferocious and uncompromising in both its execution and its message, Judith is pure, vicious fury.
The video is as dark as the song's lyrical subject matter -- with David Fincher taking a break from directing films like Se7en and Panic Room to return to his musical roots. He brings the same kind of distorted but seductive decay to the video that he brings to so many of his big-screen projects.
Tonight's pick is A Perfect Circle's Judith.
By the way, in case you don't believe me about the sacrilege thing, the lyrics are here.
