Foo Fighters - Everlong

Foo Fighters - Everlong (Official Music Video) - More amazing video clips are a click away

I think this is a fantastic music video. It is expressionistic and ironic as it is partially a parody of the cult horror film Evil Dead. The video is based around 2 characters, a man and a wife having bad dreams. In the males dream, he is at a party where there are 2 men harrassing his wife. The anger he shows for these 2 men causes his hand to swell up to a giant size (the ‘Handor’) and uses it against the harassers. Dave Grohl has admitted this idea was part of a nightmare he used to have a child where his hand grew to enormous proportions. Which i feel is a really clever idea, as this song is about pain, love and excitement which he must feels has a link to his childhood and how he felt when having these dreams. I think having strong powerful dreams can influence who you are and your behavior, and that is why i like this video so much.
