Russian punk quartet Biting Elbows have released a brand new single entitled Bad Motherfucker.
The super violent video for Bad Motherfucker has already had over 4 million views and was temporarily taken down by YouTube for its graphic content. The video has an extensive history with 9 days of filming, 5 stuntmen and 40 participants to create the final product. Even the video’s director and band member, Ilya Naishuller, was injured during the making of the video after an AK-47 loaded with blanks was shot too close to him causing paralysis in half his face and damaging on his ear. Thankfully, he has made a full recovery.
Naishuller made a few comments on the video:
“Lyrically, it deals with my dislike, but at the same time my awe, of clichéd rock stars, young and old, who pull off the trick of keeping forgiving fans invested in them, easily making them gobble up whatever the supposed ‘Sons of Rock ‘N’ Roll’ throw up their way. We’re excited to present what is our first foray into implementing electronic sounds and samples. We’re pleased with the result and I think that we will be experimenting like this a lot more in the near future”.
