Vidiot: Audioslave “Cochise”
I have always been a fan of Soundgarden and Rage Against The Machine. “Superunknown” and Rage’s self titled were 2 of the first cassettes I ever wore out from listening to too much. When Audioslave formed I figured “Hellz to the YEAH! Best of both worlds”.
In 2002 Audioslave released the video for their single “Cochise” . At that time, the nation was still very sensitive to the aftermath of the 9/11 attacks. The reason for choosing “Cochise” as today’s pick for “Vidiot” is because of all the drama that surrounded the filming of the video. It turns out that the amount of fireworks and lighting used during the filming of the video caused nearby residents to report the possibility of a terrorist attack.
The video was also cenosored in parts because of the fear that the amount of strobes and flashing lights involved in the video could cause seizures for people with epilepsy.
With that said. If you are epileptic or afraid of terrorists DO NOT watch the following video. If you are not either of the two, then ENJOY!
