Music video by System Of A Down performing Boom!. (C) 2003 SONY BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT
"Boom!" is a protest song from System of a Down's CD Steal This Album!. The song describes the uselessness of bombs and warfare, and compares how thousands can die from starvation and poverty when billions are spent creating bombs and weaponry. It also links the use of military action with corporate globalization and quotes the title of one of Noam Chomsky's books: "Manufacturing Consent is the name of their game.", which is a reference to the media's role in war. The bridge of the song is based on the movement "Mars, The Bringer of War" from Gustav Holst's orchestral suite The Planets.
