Following last week’s early 2000s punk-rock throwback (Wheatus – ‘Teenage Dirtbag’), we’ve decided to continue the tradition with this 2001 punk rock track, Movies, by US rockers, Alien Ant Farm.
This track is not only notable for its lyrical content about love and despair, but more so for its iconic video. The aforementioned video parodies scenes from films such as Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory, Ghostbusters, Edward Scissorhands and The Karate Kid (with a cameo from Pat Morita – from the original Karate Kid film!)
So, crank the volume to 11 and rock out!
This song definitely made its mark on my life back in 2001 – do you remember this song fondly? What’s your #ThrowbackThursday song for the week? Please share this link on social media.
