"Violent Pornography" Funny Misheard Song Lyrics
SYSTEM OF A DOWN - VIOLENT PORNOGRAPHY LYRICS
I very much disagree with the interpretation above. I think it is very much about the media and how we are desensitised to the horrors "the kinda shit you get on your TV" seen on TV daily. It's pointing out that the stuff we see on TV is as bad as a violent pornagraphy, yet it is socially acceptable to watch. It also points out that TV is brainwashing viewers "can you say brainwashing" , refers to a big American snack food corporation that probably advertises a lot in the US "Bet you it's Nabiso" and tell the listener to switch off "turn of your TV" , which I think all supports the view that the song is not, in fact, about porn. I have to agree with those of you who say this isn't about the porn you have to order through your cable company, this is like Law and Order Special Victim's unit etc.
