Hmm, not sure if there’s a theme with these five. Things that are either slightly or very disturbing? An exploration of the roles we all play in society? Cool new music? Whatever, just watch.

UNKLE feat. Ian Astbury – “Burn My Shadow” (via Stereogum)

In which a regular guy awakens one morning to find, well, something’s been installed in his body. Creepy factor: 7/10

Ciara – “Like a Boy”

In which the young pop singer wonders about gender roles, and dances around with some butch gals. Groundbreaking factor: 5/10

LCD Soundsystem – “All My Friends” (via Cliptip)

In which James Murphy gets painted up, rained on, and then apparently shot fireworks at. Adorable James Murphy factor: 8/10

Queens of the Stone Age – “Sick Sick Sick” (via Pitchfork)

In which the members of the raunchy rock combo are feasted upon, one by one, by a very hungry lady. Gross shots of meat factor: 9/10

Bonde do Role – “Solta o Frango”

In which a couple portly guys dress up in, ahem, rooster outfits, and stage a mock battle on the street. Brazilian party factor: 10/10

DEMOCRACY DOES NOT EXIST...

without free and fair elections, a vigorous free press, and engaged citizens to reclaim power from those who abuse it.

In this election year unlike any other—against a backdrop of a pandemic, an economic crisis, racial reckoning, and so much daily bluster—Mother Jones' journalism is driven by one simple question: Will America move closer to, or further from, justice and equity in the years to come?

If you're able to, please join us in this mission with a donation today. Our reporting right now is focused on voting rights and election security, corruption, disinformation, racial and gender equity, and the climate crisis. We can’t do it without the support of readers like you, and we need to give it everything we've got between now and November. Thank you.
