Courtney Love makes a really good fascist cult leader. I can say this with authority because she plays one in Fall Out Boy’s new video for “Rat A Tat” from their album Save Rock and Roll. “Rat A Tat” is the ninth video they’ve put out for the album and they plan to make two more – one for each of the 11 tracks. The song opens with a spoken-word intro, then Love breaks in with “It’s Courtney, bitch.” Take that, Britney.
Love is some music-hating zealot who prances around with a megaphone and leather pants, rallying her brainwashed minions to destroy musical instruments. The production ends up being something like a mash up of Rocky Horror Picture Show and Pink Floyd’s “Another Brick in the Wall Part 2” video, but not quite as cool as that sounds…check it out to see for yourself. (Kudos to FOB for the crossbow banjo. Definitely seems like something Robert Rodriguez would’ve invented.)
