The Bronx Unzip ‘Youth Wasted’ Music Video
Motley Crue‘s ‘Girls, Girls Girls’? Marilyn Manson‘s ‘(s)AINT’? Rammstein‘s ‘P–sy’? All child’s play compared to the new video for ‘Youth Wasted’ from the Bronx. The clip is so juicy that they even premiered it on the official website for the all-sausage softcore magazine Playgirl.
From the band’s fourth studio album, ‘The Bronx IV,’ ‘Youth Wasted’ recently made our list of the Best Rock Songs of 2013 (So Far). Now that the video has been released, ‘Youth Wasted’ boasts a whole new appeal for prospective fans. The video cuts between black and white footage of the Bronx performing ‘Youth Wasted’ and scenes from an all-male strip club with gentlemen who may or may not be firemen and cowboys.
The Bronx released a statement with the video from a mystery representative known as ‘The Guvn’r':
As an avid reader of one of the greatest periodicals of our lifetime (strictly for the articles of course) we are pleased to announce our new partnership with PlayGirl.com. Please follow this link to preview our new music video for “Youth Wasted.” We had a lot of fun with Steve (aka The Hammer), Jim (aka Double Gunz) and Mike (aka The Meat Wagon) and shared tips on which brand of cocoa butter shimmers the best, and smells the least – as well as what is referred to as “packing heat” (to stuff…or not to stuff…) and have enjoyed having them opening a few shows for us. Thanks again to Playgirl for impeccable taste and being a leader in the visual / sonic advancement of mankind. - Keep it wet – The Guvn’r
