(NSFW) Video of the Day: M.I.A. Combines Guitar Feedback and Gun Violence

Gooood morning. The NSFW Romain Gavras-directed video for new M.I.A. track “Born Free” dropped this morning, and boy is it epic. What starts as an ambiguous police raid segues into an intensely violent torture session with redheaded lads being the object of ire. As Maya Arulpragasam pointed out on her Twitter feed, the video has already been removed from YouTube for its graphic content. As for the song, it’s a hard rock cry away from the days of “Galang.” Click through to view (and consider yourself warned).

If the anarchistic theme seems familiar, you might recall Romain Gavras’s “Stress” video for Justice.
