Broken Social Scene – Meet Me in the Basement (video)

Pretty awesome that this is a fan made band approved video, although anonymously created, it must be a big thrill for the creator to have this going around. The fan-made, band-approved, found-footage video for Forgiveness Rock Record‘s epic “Meet Me in the Basement” looks like a visual analog for his worldview. Made as a response to the recent riot-filled G20 Summit in the band’s hometown of Toronto, the clip slices together storm-trooper footage from that event along with a flashes of what could be interpreted as “distractions”: Justin Bieber, violent video games, Lady Gaga, Obama girl. It’s pretty intense.

Recorded live in studio in Muscle Shoals, AL during the making of their newest album, Brothers. The Black Keys continue to be one of the coolest rock bands around today.  The eery nature of this song, the howling and airy sounds and Auerbach’s voice bring this song into a deep dark corner of your mind.
