Free is the sixth studio album by Negativland. In the wake of leaving SST Records, Negativland revived their self-owned Seeland Records label, signed a distribution deal with Mordam Records, and released this album. The main topics are about liberty, the media, and what it means to be free. "Free" has found sounds, stories, and songs about a well-known convenience store, torture, the quality of urban life, Cadillacs, firearms, the bible, interstate trucking, geriatric discomfort, big dogs, bicycle safety, alcohol consumption, driving in circles, death, organ buttons, religious dialectics, and the truth about The Star-Spangled Banner.
