Nothing More Unleash ‘Mr. MTV’ Video
Nothing More unleash an attack on the music industry and corporate America in their slick new video for ‘Mr. MTV.’ The clip doesn’t hold back, showing the band’s displeasure of America’s product consumption, complacent TV viewing and the business behind it all.
The video, which you probably won't see on MTV, features the San Antonio band performing the heavy, yet catchy song in front of a white backdrop while a group of “suits” watch over disapprovingly. Sexy images and a variety of products from shoes to motorcycles are rapidly flashed through the clip as a group of people are tied to chairs and forced to watch TV with their eyes taped open. In the end, a coup breaks out and the corporate suits responsible for America’s obsession with sex, drugs and vanity are besieged.
In the chorus of the song, frontman Jonny Hawkins belts out, “Empty me / Empty nation / Emptied us of inspiration / Bastard sons and broken daughters / All bow down to our corporate father.” He also teases the 1985 Dire Straits track ‘Money for Nothing’ at the end of the song, repeating the classic line, “I want my MTV,” made famous by Sting.
'Mr. MTV' is featured on Nothing More's self-titled album, which was released back in May. You can download it via iTunes.
Nothing More are currently out on the road with Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat and Hellyeah. The band also recently announced eight U.K. shows with The Pretty Reckless, which will take place in November. For the full list of Nothing More tour dates, click here.
