Music Video of the Week- Be Your Own Pet

It’s been a while since I’ve graced this blog with my presence. It’s been a busy two months, and unfortunately this blog was put on the back burner. However, the posts shall continue whether you like it or not.

Be Your Own Pet

Be Your Own Pet

This week’s music video comes from a band that I recently discovered even though they broke up a few years ago. Once again, I’m late to the party. It’s like high school all over again. Just kidding, I was never invited to parties in high school…

That’s neither here nor there. This week’s I have chosen the band, Be Your Own Pet. This punk/garage band came to us from the sweet dwellings of Nashville, Tennessee. Which is weird, because the lead singer is the only Ten I See. In other words, she’s attractive.

Anyways, here is there video for the song, Adventure. Enjoy yourselves.


Music Video of the Week- Relient K

I started listening to Relient K back in 6th grade, which has been quite a long time. Well, at least to me. They’ve gone through some changes through the years, such as a new drummer and bassist. And along with that, their music has changed as well.

The band, Relient K

Relient K

Their first albums were filled with fun, pop-punk anthems like Sadie Hawkins Dance, Pressing On, Hello McFly and Marilyn Manson Ate My Girlfriend. Over the years, the sound has grown and become more serious.

In a way, this band holds a special place in my musical heart, because I feel like their music grew up with me. The albums Mmhmm, Five Score and Seven Years Ago and Forget and Not Slow Down really began to show the maturity of this band and the excellent lyrical work of their lead singer, Matthew Thiessen.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each and every album and have numerous songs memorized. Every time I hear one of their older songs, I can immediately connect it to a memory.

Their latest album is Forget and Not Slow Down, and it’s a really solid record. The only thing I don’t like is the fact that there were no music videos to come from the album. So I will just have to share some of their earlier work. But luckily, these guys are working on some new stuff. So maybe we’ll get some new music videos from them in the future. (fingers crossed.)

This week’s video is from Relient K and the songs is called Must Have Done Something Right. And even though I hate soccer, I find this to be a really fun video and song. Check it out.

Tell me about your favorite Relient K song in the comments section.

Music Video of the Week- Billy Talent

This week’s video comes from a band that I really don’t know much about, called Billy Talent. They are a Canadian punk band that formed back in 1993.

To be completely honest, this song showed up on one of my Spotify radio stations and I’ve been jamming out to it ever since. These guys have some pretty good material from what I’ve heard from them.

Anyways, here is there video called, “Try Honesty.” The video is a tad bit creepy, the lead singer gets really intense and the guitar player has some amazing hair. I have no idea how he gets to stay so perfectly.

That’s neither here nor there, so just enjoy the music my friend.

Music Video of the Week- The Hives

I don’t know why, but I’ve been listening to bands like The White Stripes and The Hives a lot lately. Maybe it’s because Jack White’s new album is all over the place, or maybe I just have a fascination with bands with the word “The” in front of them. It could be either one.

This week, I chose an older music video simply because the song is infectious. If you’ve never listened to The Hives, they are a punk rock band from Sweden. They aren’t Avril Lavigne  “punk rock,” these guys are the real deal. They have a raw sound with catchy riffs and howling vocals. These guys have even been voted one of the best bands to see live. Going to one of their shows is on my bucket list.

I’m pretty sure they are working on a new album right now. My favorite albums are Veni Vidi Vicious  and Tyrannosaurus Hives, which you should definitely check out.  Here is one of their older songs, entitled “Die, All Right!”
