It wasn't big hit here in the UK, it may have been in the States, but one song I heard a few years ago had the "Wow!" factor in terms of its lyrics for me. It was called "Television" and was a sort of rap song, although a bit difficult to categorise. I can't remember who it was by (if anyone knows, please tell me), but the sentiment was devastating in its critique of the medium.
Guaranteed not to be promoted by MTV.
