"No force can deny peaceful nuclear energy from Iran"

There's a new pop single hitting the top of the charts of Iran. Straight from the streets of Tehran, performer Amir Tataloo raps about the right of the ayatollahs to keep a "peaceful nuclear energy."

His video, entitled "Nuclear Energy" (Energy Hasteei), provided by MEMRI was filmed in part on a naval vessel and depicts militants marching, getting into position with their rifles and waiting to receive orders. The video includes English subtitles and thus his message can be clearly understood to everyone: 

"If its about my peace, then this is my only intention."

"I'm a peaceful Iranian that is against all violence," he sings, before breaking into the rather catchy chorus, "This is our absolute right to have an armed Persian Gulf."

In verse two, Tataloo admits that although he doesn't play political games or even know what's going on in the country, he does know that "there needs to be a power to put us ahead."

in the final frame, various units of the Iranian army and navy are thanked.
