In the new video for Paramore's "Playing God," singer Hayley Williams runs roughshod over her bandmates, drugging them during a tea party, tying them up in a basement, and then subjecting them to an interrogation. She frees them to perform the chorus — but the reprieve doesn't last through the end of the song.

“Long Walk Home”

Bruce Springsteen | 2007

When the subject of this mournful song returns home, he hardly recognizes his town. Springsteen told Rolling Stone the alienation the man feels is a metaphor for life in a politically altered post-9/11 America. “Who would have ever thought we’d live in a country without habeas corpus?” he said. “That’s Orwellian. That’s what political hysteria is about and how effective it is. I felt it in myself. You get frightened for your family, for your home. And you realize how countries can move way off course, very far from democratic ideals.”
