Fear of a Blank Planet

Below is the controversial video of Porcupine Tree's song 'Fear of a Blank Planet'. On April 16, 2007, the music video for the title track debuted on Porcupine Tree's MySpace, though it was temporarily removed a day later in the wake of the shootings at Virginia Tech due to the band finding the content, namely children wielding guns, distasteful at that time. This video was directed by long-time collaborator, artist Lasse Hoile.

The song (and the album) paint disturbing images of young adolescents bored, narcotised and passive through the cumulative effects of TV, dope and prescription drugs.
