Never heard this song or watched the video until a week ago. I've been playing a lot of Ramones stuff to my kids (Cartoon Rock and all that - they love it) as they want a proper electric guitar and drum kit for "their rock band". They are 8 and 5. However, I never played "The KKK took my Baby Away" as I didn't want my kids asking "What is the KKK, daddy?" (Though I'm quite happy for them to sing out loud "I wanna be sedated!") But in a bored moment I watched the KKK video, expecting a bit of jokey, bubblegum, unpolitical fun. However, imagine my furrowed brow when I saw the words "The KKK TOOK MY BABY AWAY, SHE WENT TO LA, AND NEVER CAME BACK." were juxtaposed with images of a young lady being ambushed, strangled and dragged through bushes. VERY disconcerting. Not non-political throwabout jokey song at all. Very disturbing. I'll play the song again but not the video.

What do you think? Edit: Erm - that should read "non-apposite etc..."
