Two Shockingly Violent Music Vidoes

I’ve been turning VH1 on in the morning as background music while I work and noticed a pair of crazy-violent vidoes. First up The Black Keys’ video for “Tighten Up” which not only has kids wailing on each other but also the dudes in the band WITH THEIR INSTRUMENTS!

The other one is Maroon 5’s “Misery” video, which, I have no problem admitting, I do not get at all. Are they supposed to be superheroes?

When I said they’re shockingly violent I don’t mean that I’m offended by them in any way. I was just surprised that VH1 fare would have so many asses being kicked all over the place.
