The All-American Rejects' new video, "Gives You Hell," (did you see them tearing the set apart on the last-ever afternoon episode of TRL yesterday?) takes all of the most glorious aspects of pop-punk and pop-rock videos of the late '90s and early oughts and parlays them into a nostalgia-packed, fun-filled hatefest with the added benefit of a shirtless Tyson Ritter. (W00t!!1!)
Suburban streets, retro decor, blindingly bright color treatments, the band role playing, sporting bad hair and throwing stuff at the neighbors? Is this blink-182's "First Date" meets Lit's "My Own Worst Enemy" meets The Offspring's "Pretty Fly For a White Guy", with a little Weezer thrown in for good measure (because that chorus definitely echoes "Beverly Hills" and "Say It Ain't So.")
I still love the '90s!
