I'm Afraid of Americans

A brutal, unflinching indictment of the vagaries and homogeneity of American culture and its various quirks, David Bowie's utterly brilliant "I'm Afraid of Americans" is made even more more fearsome in a terrific remixed version done by industrial-pop majordomo Trent Reznor (a.k.a. Nine Inch Nails), which ups the ante on the original's inherent extreme noise terror.

Check out the smartly done, "Taxi Driver"-inspired promo - featuring insane stalkers (Reznor as the primary psycho), rampant, uncontrolled gun violence and misguided religious orthodoxy as its main subjects - here.
