Video of the Week: Black Flag "TV Party"

As a well-known sociologist (lie) with 17,504 Twitter followers (lie) and nearly 600,000 page views on this blog (lie) I am frequently asked (lie) by national media outlets to share my favorite video of the week (lie).

Lies aside, I heard "TV Party" by Black Flag on radio a few times this week and it led me to find the video. Henry Rollins and band mates yelling out TV show names from the 80s ("Hill Street Blues," "Dallas" cracks me up). The song also serves as criticism about watching TV ("Why go into the outside world at all?" ... "I don't even bother to use my brain any more").

As a fun song with media criticism, this is definitely my favorite video of the week.
