The video is utter garbage and I hope there wasn’t much coin invested in it. Honestly its the discarded entrails of a Manson vid with just enough generic imagery to be so cliche its ridiculous.

As punk music croaked commercially in the U.S. in the late ‘70s, its safer kid sister, “new wave,” was introduced as an alternative marketing term. What exactly was “new wave”? Everything that had a beat and wasn’t metal was thrown into that category at one point
