Music: Little Caesar’s star-spangled nightmare
Little Caesar have unveiled a stark and thought-provoking video for the title track from their most recent album American Dream.
Track: Little Caesar – American Dream
File under: sweet dreams ain’t made of this
Released this past spring, American Dream is Little Caesar’s fourth full-length studio album and the follow-up to 2009′s reunion fandango Redemption, which gained a release in the UK on the Grind That Axe label (a subsidiary of Rock Candy).
While clearly produced on a tight budget, the American Dream clip encapsulates perfectly the cynical sentiments of the veteran Los Angeles band’s lyrics. The vid is a hard-bitten paean to a “sweet land of lust and greed” and is full of images of cop violence, teen obesity, carefree war-mongering, the Twin Towers collapsing and… Ted Nugent?!
Watch it below.
