S.H.O.U.T. – Sell Your Soul To The Devil: A Video Breakdown

Share:

O.H. M.Y. G.O.D.

This is it. This is the music video of the year. Shut it down now. All bands and labels should spend their video money on more important things like healthcare and trailers with strong locks. I thought MRock has the best/worst video in recent memory, but Finland’s S.H.O.U.T. has gotten him beat. I don’t know much about S.H.O.U.T. and I don’t think I want to know.  Looking at the lyrics doesn’t clarify anything.

SELLLLLLLYEAHAAA
YEAH!

WE WILL BRING YOU TO THE TOP

Phew. Still better than Five Finger Death Punch’s “Sham Pain“. Is it serious? Is it a joke? The mystery makes it all the better. Let’s break down their video and try to figure it out.

 

 

 

Jason Vorhees’s loser brother, Chip Voorhees.

 

Gene Simmons got real dark after Kiss Meets The Phantom Of The Park.

 

Please use this as your new go-to reaction gif. It fits every situation.

 

“I want to play a game…Kiss: Psycho Circus: The Nightmare Child

 

Nothing says “The Ramones” like a Flying V guitar.

 

“Soup? Salad? I can’t decide!”

 

Is that David Shing behind the mask?

 

I hope seeing this makes every black metal nerd mad for the rest of their absurd lives.

 

S.H.O.U.T’s album The Rock’n’Roll Monsters is out soon. In the meantime, give them all your money via Bandcamp.
