Video of the Week - Week 61

So in case you didn't catch that incredibly lethargic write-up I did yesterday of the recent Built to Spill show, I had the opportunity to see The Meat Puppets live the other night. That's right, The Meat Puppets. The guys who have been around since 1980 and yet have only had one hit song, and that one is 14 years old!

In honor of the Meat Puppets' unflinching drive to continue onward and downward, much like Presidential candidate Ron Paul, I've decided to bring you that one hit song by The Meat Puppets in all it's 1994, grunge-rock influenced video. It is Alternative Rock Month here at Audio Overflow, and I can't think of a video that captures the ridiculousness of mid-nineties rock videos more than this one. Enjoy the dreary, Oliver Stone nature of it - complete with a completely unnecessary dancing clown. You're welcome.

"Backwater" by The Meat Puppets, from the album, Too High To Die.

Holy Crap! Your video isn't showing up for me, but as soon as I saw Meat Puppets, I was like, "OMG, did Cale post Backwater?!?!?!?" I used to love that song. I considered their album for the 25 list, but then realized they were a one hit wonder.

I finally got to watch the video. It's pretty awful.
