  1. I think America by Motionless in White describes the modern USA. Particularly the parts about ‘handing convicts fame in HD’ and about ‘glorified ignorance,’ this song highlights the negatives in our society, negatives that are often overlooked by pop culture. While the song exaggerates some things slightly (‘oil prices are so high we can’t feed ourselves’), I feel it gives the song a better effect and will make the point to people it would otherwise pass over. The song uses exaggeration to provide emphasis on the bad things in American society, and I think that these bad things are important to recognize in this age.
