The Hold Steady - Your Little Hoodrat Friend

Early 2000s MTV style music video for a song with lyrics that matter. The Hold Steady is a band that constantly produces songs that are catchy, but the lyrics are far more serious than those of similar/contemporary rock bands. A lot of their songs are timeless yarns regarding youth scenes, parties, and the things that happen around those environments when youthful exuberance is taken to the extreme. In addition, these lyrics don't seem to be at all related to the video. Strange but interesting juxtaposition. It's as if the director didn't care at all about the song's story, but instead just wanted to make a video that would catch MTV's eye. And apparently the video was banned?
