Fave Music Video Of ’09: Dinosaur Jr’s “Over It”
You know, once you get over the initial icky feelings, this year-end retrospective stuff almost isn’t terrible.
So, my vote for music video of the year goes to indie legends Dinosaur Jr and their clip for “Over It.” The overall theme of this three and a half minute piece is “these old guys may be old, but they can still fuck it up on the streets”:
It’s nice to see Dinosaur Jr have fun and act carefree, because it sure seemed like they disliked each other in that Michael Azerrad book Our Band Could Be Your Life. Not even hatred—just intense dislike. Guess they’re past all that now.
Oh, and you know what else? The song in the video ain’t half bad.
