"The Fight Song" is the second single from Marilyn Manson's fourth studio album Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death). The music video for this song, directed by W.I.Z., shows the band members performing the song at a high school football game between two teams: "Holy Wood" and "Death Valley". The game itself is a metaphor for the conflict amongst both (in the album's concept) the rejects living in the Valley of Death and the beautiful people living in Holy Wood (itself a pun on Hollywood) as well as, possibly, the conflict of upper and lower classes, as inspired by Friedrich Nietzsche (see Master-slave morality). The video also features a few subliminal messages; at approximately 2:11, the video briefly replaces the scuffling football players with people fighting with police riot squads. It's often believed that the line "The death of one is a tragedy / The death of a million is just a statistic" is a famous quote attributed to Josef Stalin, but the quote is taken from Erich Maria Remarque's The Black Obelisk.
