‘True Detective’: Here’s the Brilliant Song From That Strip Club Scene (Video)

The hellish closing of Sunday night’s “True Detective” is the sequence everyone is talking about, but a quick scene in a strip club may have been even better.

As a dancer peels off an American-flag bikini, the DJ blares KRS-One and Boogie Down Productions’ “Illegal Business,” a blunt tribute to America’s underground economies. Capitalism runs amok onstage as the dancer strips and Woody Harrelson broken detective barely notices. You can feel the American dream dying at thriving in the same instant.
