This article examines the mass media response to a protest against a 1992 outdoor rock music concert at Atsugi Japan, a US military base. The protest illustrates a clash between two images of the United States that are usually viewed independently in Japanese popular culture: the US as oppressor and impetus for political action and as an honored source of inspiration for creative expression in rock music.
