Released at the start of the invasion of Iraq, the Black Eyed Peas breakthrough hit has been interpreted as an anthem against the the War on Terror. The song explores themes of intolerence and greed, and contains the lyrics: 'Overseas we tryin' to stop terrorism/ But we still got terrorists here livin'/ In the USA, the big CIA, the Bloods and the Crips and the KKK/ But if you only have love for your own race/ Then you only leave space to discriminate.'
