Here's a link to the video for "Donald Tsang, Please Die". I think the song is quite charming--a protest song that is quietly resigned yet pointed. For someone like me who grew up with punk rock, the song is hardly offensive, but judging from what Bouree Lam writes in her article and from some of the comments posted on YouTube, the song definitely hits the nerves of some Hongkongers.
