Harris’ Music Video of the Week: Know Your Enemy

It pains me to say that 4 days after it’s release I still do not own the new Green Day album, “21st Century Breakdown.” Despite being slightly repetitive, the first single “Know Your Enemy,” has a pretty sweet and simple video. It is clear that the video is aimed at showing their punk sides, something that this song demonstrates.

The video was directed by Matthew Cullen who did an awesome job portraying the band in a live setting within what appears to be a prison. One of my favorite shots in the video is towards the end just before fire erupts behind the band. Billie Joe’s shadow appears on a huge wall behind him and it just seems really over the top (in a great way).

Although many people are down on this song right now, it is a song made to be heard live and I cannot wait to expereince the entire album.

PS, I am going to buy the album today, look for the review soon!!
