First up we have a brand new vid from performers and VMA veterans Green Day. “Kill the DJ” is the 2nd clip from their forthcoming album Uno!, which hits stores September 25th. I think the message here is pretty clear. Highlights include Mike’s leopard print bass and the end where things get weird. Since hearing this song, it’s made a permanent little spot in my head. And yours?
Next up to bat is Best Rock Video nominees The Black Keys with their freshly filmed “Little Black Submarines.” Say what you want about live performance videos, but as far as I’m concerned, the more closeups of Dan Auerbach the better. Furthermore, how could you more properly serve the moment this song explodes from its quiet, somber beginning into a big ole tantrum of drums and guitar.
Then we have Taylor Swift’s latest, cause why not. She’ll also be performing at the big show, and her video for “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” is pretty sweet. You’ll notice it’s all in one shot, and word from behind the scenes is they got it on the 18th take.
Yesterday was a big day in the land of tunes. We got a new Green Day single, a single/video double whammy from No Doubt, and some new video eye candy from Jack White. Check it all out below as I try and peel myself off the ceiling.
