SFF Music Video of the Week - #93

I'm rather conflicted about this one. I mean we have a sort of post-apocalyptic western vibe going on, but on the other hand we've got a bunch of white guys (plus Slash) beating up on a demonised ethnic group. 

Now within the context of the story, it is not nice people that get laid into, but did the producers have to make them all Mexican?  

No. And that is where I have a problem with this clip. They could have just as easily cast another bunch of white guys as the villains. Instead they took an easy stereotype and used it exclusively. I know they are playing to a trope in doing so, but it is lazy and very out of touch - even for 14 years ago.

In any event, from 2007, here is "She Builds Quick Machines" by Velvet Revolver.
