Growing up as a child of the 80s, Living Colour was a revelation for me – seeing someone who looked like me, playing like that was probably the most awesome thing ever, and it seemed to open up a number of possibilities. I was absolutely wild about these guys, so in honor of their Afropunk Festival set this weekend, check out the official video for one of my favorite Living Colour songs, “Funny Vibe.” (Sadly, the message of the song is still relevant, especially in light of the Trayvon Martin case, and countless other similar cases. Hell, I’ve had similar experiences as portrayed in the video.)
