Friday Music: "Sex Type Thing" - Stone Temple Pilots

I give you the Stone Temple Pilots' "Sex Type Thing":

This song deals with misogyny, masculinity, power, violence, sexual assault, and rape. I remember seeing the video for the first time as a teenager and getting these references but missing the social critique, taking it for an endorsement of sexual domination. In reality, the song is, in part, a response to and condemnation of an actual rape.
