UPDATE: So Dick Clark is a greedy bastard and had this video pulled.

“I’m aliterate… I choose not to read.” For many years, this has been my mantra. Said so often, in jest, but also in truth. When I was in high school, I loved to read. Freshman year through Junior, you’d be hard pressed to find me in the halls without some Dungeons & Dragons book in tow. My Senior year came along and something changed… and for the life of me I can’t tell you what. The final book in a quintet I had been reading for the past 2 years had finally been released, and I was ambivalent about it. Yes, I wanted some closure, and yet, it was a labor to go to the store and pick up the book that I had pre-purchased so long ago. Even more so to read the damn thing.
I had heard the name of this band off back in the day on 89x back home. I don’t recall what song they had on the radio but I recall it sounding like a rip of everything else that was on the radio at the time, hence why I generally hate listening to the radio. I once again found them in Guitar Hero III and immediately fell in love with this song. I’d forgotten about it recently until Coop made a post with another song of theirs that gave me the idea to see if there was a video for this. Well, there is. It’s above if you didn’t notice, and dadagumbit… it’s one of the most insane videos I’ve ever seen and yet, it’s still pure genius.
