Awolnation Kill Your Heroes

I try to limit my use of internet acronyms to instance when they actually apply. No BRB-ing when I have no intentions of returning any time soon, and no “WTF” unless I really do want an explanation. That said, I literally LOL-ed while watching AWOLNATION’S video for “Kill Your Heroes” off their much lauded full-length debut, Megalithic Symphony.

The video features AWOL in a warped version of Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, one of my all-time favorite shows as a kid, and I won’t spoil the surprise, but my audible burst of laughter occurred right around the 2:25 minute mark (the look on The Shark’s face is just too much). In fitting with the song’s title, the entire video is a lesson in destruction and also a reminder that frontman Aaron Bruno has some sweet baby blues.

Check out the video below, and be sure to catch AWOLNATION when they bring their “Never Let Your Fear Decide Your Fate” U.S. tour with Imagine Dragons and Zeale to Club Nokia Live on October 11. Tickets for many dates on the tour have already sold out, so I suggest you pick up yours for the Club Nokia show ASAP (and I really mean that).
