Shut Up And Sing: Midnight Oil

For your contest I would like to nominate Midnight Oil's "Beds Are Burning", a gem from the late '80s about Indigenous Australian land rights. The video manages to combine close-ups of indigenous children and self-righteous head bobbing.


While the verses and chorus aren’t terrible, the bridge (“The time has come/To say ‘fair’s fair’/To pay the rent/To pay our share/The time has come/A fact’s a fact/It belongs to them/Let’s give it back”) is a horrid masterpiece of Rock Star Preaching.
