Don't let the barriers you have built to define who you are blind you from appreciating the unfamiliar.

The Dead Weather - Treat Me Like Your Mother

The Dead Weather is a super group made up of the best people in two good bands, White Stripes (Jack White) and The Kills (Alison Mossheart) and supporting members The Raconteurs and the Queens of the Stone Age. They don't really sound like any of those bands, but if you mixed them altogether it would pretty much sound like The Dead Weather. They play dark, brash, garage rock.

The video is gritty and visceral. It is an interpretation of a Clint Eastwood styled Western shoot out with a dark and sultry, modern day veneer. Automatic rifles and leather jackets instead of pistols and ponchos. One of the coolest parts of the video is a reminiscent of a shoot out from Sam Raimi's "The Quick and the Dead". We see the light shining through the bullet holes peppered across the duelers backs. Sexy. Share/Bookmark
