Blows Against The Empire

There are 3 things on this year's Hugo ballot I think it is worth paying for a supporting membership of Worldcon to vote for. There may well be 4 once I read the Malzberg (yaaay) and (ugh) Resnick book.
First amongst these of course is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1IxOS4VzKM (strong language from the outset, as the BBC say). Signing up to vote for this against the unmitigated drivel that is Moffat era Nu Who (3 episodes nominated) would be worth the price of entry in my book.
I assume that, on some level, we know that the nomination is for the video, not for the song. But I suppose either way it is the first song nomination on some level since Blows Against The Empire.

Also Randall of XKCD fame gets a nomination too. Could the world be changing?
