Classic Music Video Of The Day: BB

I forgot how much this song sucked. Great video, though. I bet their neighbors love them. The only things missing are a big pile of burning trash and a Confederate flag hanging out one of the windows.

On a happy note, Betty saw Rock City.

  1. Really? I love this song! And I'm not a redneck!

  2. I didn't say you were a redneck if you liked this song. I said the band look like rednecks.

  3. It is way too early in the day for the Boone's Farm flashbacks this song produces.

    Wasn't it on the soundtrack for a John Travolta movie? One of the military ones?

  4. I think it was on the Dukes Of Hazzard soundtrack.

  5. I like this song a lot more now than when it came out. I hated it, then.

    Love the way they don't even bother to try to sync the video with the guitar solo.

  6. Quite an elaborate production. You can tell a lot of work went into the making of that video. (cough)

    If that had happened on my front lawn my neighbor would have called the police, the city council members, and the mayor to complain. :)

  7. Oh, you have one of those on your street, huh, Daisy?

    Frank, I'm the opposite. I liked the song as a kid but now I don't.

  8. Yes, she's happiest when she has something to complain about. :-)

  9. Then you should give her more things to complain about. I have some ideas.

  11. Cary, I bet you do. HA HA! Party's on!!

    (Yeah, Frank, the snow AND the temperature might be a factor. Schools were delayed two hours again this morning for bitter cold. Wind chill -12.)

  13. You do have a hot tub, right Daisy.

  14. Anon - Yes. I thought he looked familiar.

  15. No, Lefty, I'm sorry to disappoint you, but I don't have a hot tub. The closest thing to a hot tub here is the whirlpool at the Y that all the little old ladies go and sit in to ease their arthritis pains. Not much of a party atmosphere there, I'm afraid. HA HA!

    We have plenty of snow to build snow sculptures with though, (and if you make the right kind, pictures of them might end up on LOTD!). We could also sit around and watch people slip and fall on the ice in our driveway. That's always good for a laugh. :D

  16. Yeah, Lefty, go poo-n-spoo in the old ladies' spa tub and see how fast they evacuate (the tub, I mean). Arthritis? What arthritis?

  17. HA HA HA! It would be like a miracle cure. Probably be the fastest they've moved in years.

  18. I liked the song back then and still do.
    More evidence I can present to my wife that I have not, in fact, changed.

  19. Bought a very rough car years ago, I was told it was nicknamed Black Betty after a song. It was about 2 years before I heard this and made the connection.

    Like the song. Video is crap-tastic.

  20. I liked this song, too - even owned me the 45 - but the video, oh yeah. They filmed alone in someone's back yard, as if the parents of some teenaged fan deliberately sent them to the wrong address so they wouldn't screw up their kid's birthday party. The bassist is clapping during his part in the solo. They show the same footage (watch for the dancing girl in the back, and the drummer's close-ups). And, speaking of the dancing girl, they have random people wander in to the set. Add to that the facial contortions of the lead singer, which are over-the-top and cornpone goofy enough to make the lead singer from Slade blanche.

    Winner all around.

  21. WTF, C? I hate me a redneck confederate duchebag bad as the next guy, but this song ROCKS! Com'n, I'm sure even Sarah Palin has done SOMETHING worthwhile in her life (bit of a strech, I know, but it's a possibility).
