New Video: Alkaline Trio, 'Help Me'

Remember the days when villains invariably sported giant handlebar mustaches, everyone wore suspenders and no train tracks were complete without a damsel in distress draped artfully across the railroad slats? If not, allow Alkaline Trio to take you back to a bygone era none of us was around for with "Help Me," the first video off their pioneering new album, Agony and Irony.

So grab your malt whiskey -- the kind that comes in the giant jug labeled "XXX" -- and watch as the dark-but-cheery rockers attempt to rescue reality TV tat queen Kat Von D. Then, forget everything you ever knew about punk, and allow Alkaline Trio to take you where no other hardcore band has ever gone before: The Wild, Wild West.
