Queen's "Under Pressure" and Leftfield's "Release the Pressure"

Two music videos, roughly marking the beginning and end of my interest in popular music (a period spanning barely over a decade), both expressing, perhaps, appropriate horror at and resistance to modernity ("the terror of knowing what this world is about" and "I've got to stand and fight in this creation," respectively).

(That said, with all due respect, while I was a bit late on the bandwagon for this number, I'd say it beats both of the above — The Clash - Pressure Drop. And I have am fortunate to seen the original, arguably even better yet, performed live — Toots & The Maytals - Pressure Drop.)
