    Worst song on Fear of Music, lol. What a weird thing to say about such a good song.

    Clearly about censorship. I can't comprehend how this is "the worst" off of this album. This song is a personal highlight.

    "This is a crime against the state" - of course, David, of course. Great song.

    @Spaceefaceinfurs--This one was was written for the (then new) "Supreme Leader" of Iran, Khomeini, who outlawed a lot of modern music. With that in mind, lyrics =straightforward.

    So underrated! This was called a low point of Fear of Music! I'd say "Animals" is the only low point in the record. To tune-this-el-ec-tric-gui-tar!
