The Black Keys Hate Their Own Music Video (and who could blame them)

- by Maxwell Silver

When I first saw the video for The Black Keys’ new track “Next Girl”, I thought for sure it was a clever spoof by some film school brat who happened to have some very fine looking women tolerate being stalked and bothered by a stupid dinosaur hand puppet.


To my utter amazement and disbelief, the video below IS the official music video for the song “Next Girl”. Oh, LOL, I get it – make something so stupid with some beautiful women and puppet to represent one of the coolest rock duos in years, and naturally it’ll get people talking. Mission accomplished, right? Whatever. In fact, Dan Auerbach was so outraged when he saw this video, that he insisted the record label, Nonesuch, place a scrolling message of how much The Black Keys hated the idea. LOL. For real.

Auerbach was quoted in Express Night Out about the video: “It’s weird because we hate it so much and think it’s really stupid and not funny at all and not smart or clever in any way, but it’s got, like, 6 gazillion hits. I wrote the scroll. I said, ‘”The only way I would allow this stupid fucking video on the Internet is if you put this on the bottom’ — and they did it.” Doesn’t matter though, in my opinion; it still is not good for the band’s image.

Part of the text for the scrolling message on the video reads: “This is an attempt by their record label to attract attention to the band using a ridiculous dinosaur puppet.”


The Rolling Stones have remastered and added new tracks to Exile on Main Street (1971) in one of the most anticipated and publicized reissues of the year. To accompany the reissue of Exile, the band is also releasing a documentary of the taping of the double LP on DVD only, due out next month.

The web has made music videos more available than ever before, and artists and bands have been competing to make the most creative, memorable and high-quality videos for some years now, mostly DIY style.

This page, which is regularly updated, provides some of the most popular ‘indie’ rock music videos on the web, plus the occasional brilliant fan video, filmed interviews with popular artists and bands, studio and radio sessions, rock music trailers, documentaries, and highlight performances from festivals and concerts. In some cases, you’ll also find MP3s that accompany the video. Oh yeah, you might also enjoy checking out, or subscribing to IRC Indie Rock TV channel on YouTube which we also update with favorite videos not necessarily featured on this page.

Feel free to spread this page and send to others with the button. This helps us decide which videos to keep and to post in the future, because we DO care about what you think. Feel free to leave a comment about any of the videos on this page – we try to pick only the best, high-quality and creative videos developed for great songs by a range of mostly indie rock artists and bands.
