My Water's On Fire Tonight (The Fracking Song)

The best thing about fracking, perhaps, is that it sounds like a swear word. The worst thing? That is a long list. Luckily, a creative team of students at Studio 20 NYU made a music video explaining ProPublica's (let's face it) rather dry three-year investigation on the controversial natural-gas drilling technique. With a chorus like, "What the frack is going on with all this fracking going on?", the talented animators and composers behind "My Water's On Fire Tonight (The Fracking Song)" make a tune about energy regulation a hip-shaking experience.
