Shortly after newly founded electro go-to boy Kanye West debuted Justice’s new video for “Stress” from their debut album + on Thursday via his official site, it massively circulated itself onto music blogs everywhere. Some fans loved it, marking it a master piece of director Romain Gavras’ work. Others deemed it a series of useless violence and missed the point completely. I, on the other hand, was nothing short of utterly confused.

Featuring a group of young French thugs on a destructive rampage baring Justice’s signature cross on the back of their leather jackets, the video documents a spree of violence that includes theft, beatings and Molotov cocktails. Could Justice be playing into every stereotype wrong with the world including Asians in tourist-heavy cities trying to take pictures with abnormally large cameras in the midst of a group of black teens beating up all the white people in their path? Perhaps. Or they could be bringing to light disgruntled youth in France. Or it could illustrate a deeper more political symbol of the universal unrest that blankets our world. Or it could be that Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay don’t even know themselves.

When discussing this video with fellow peers, one major fan upon first full viewing simply concluded, “I don’t know why I like this,” which is interesting because frankly, I don’t know why I don’t like this.

You take a stab at it:
