It’s easy to see that Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins was inspired by the 1980s for the music video for his new single. “Range Rover Bitch.”
The video has all the visual techniques you’d expect from an 80s video, including picture-in-picture close-ups, fog machines, and a superimposed line of Hawkins.
No doubt the music videos for Billy Squier’s “Rock Me Tonite” and Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” had some influence here.
It’s a funny video, a surprisingly catchy song, and at only 2:47, it’s worth a watch.
“Ranger Rover Bitch” is the lead single from Hawkins’ new solo album, KOTA (King of the A**holes), which contains six new original songs performed almost entirely by him.
