But mostly it's just a great song, a cry in the wilderness, like most of the best rock music. The video has a do-it-yourself '80s feeling too. It's clever and artistic and emotional.
Maybe music is swinging back to a little starker, cleaner approach. Less synchronized cheerleader dance routines and more singer-songwriter stuff. Or maybe it's just a kick-ass song. Regardless, I really like it, and have it looping on the iPod.
