Ok, Aside from the heavy mysogonistic undertones (videos have been banned off mtv for less) and the fact that it took 5 years after this crap was big on TRL before South Africa finally has an emo band… woo hooo, aside from all of that… what the hell does this video mean? I don’t get it.
he makes a wee
she throws his stoney out the window
he throws her down onto the rocks!!
he tries to drown her!!!
he gets a gay look on his face
the band has a solo and the front man seductively puts his hair behind his ears….
(I would like to add that all the time that the girl is on the ground, the lead singer, if you can call him that, is whining on about how he’s ‘a time bomb, in this love song’, and looking very smug)
THEN she hits him and steals his car… and this is supposed to make it all better?!! How does a wanky metalcore band differ from Prodigy’s smack my bitch up video, which was banned despite NOT actually having any violence against women?
I guess listening to the words would help but I struggle with that, it’s easier for me to watch this video with the sound off because hearing this singer makes it feel like somone is drilling into my brain. So if anyone wants to sit though this and try to decode the lyrics please send me a synopsis…
