N*E*R*D Release Politically Conscious 'Help Me' Video

The members of N*E*R*D are going the social conscious route in their new video "Help Me," which was posted yesterday (Oct. 21) on their website.

Video: N*E*R*D's "Help Me"

Between black and white footage of the band performing the song, the video is spliced with news clips from the 1960s and today, creating a collage of war-torn American historical images. From civil rights protests to the current war raging in the Middle East and the economy, N*E*R*D is calling attention to social problems plaguing our country.

The song "Help Me" is off N*E*R*D's upcoming album "Nothing," which frontman Pharrell Williams told Billboard.com is "a time capsule," as well as reminiscent of politically conscious bands of the 1960s and 1970s. "Nothing" hits retailers Nov. 2.
