Heroes for Sale Rock Out You-Know-How

0
0

At first, Heroes for Sale's "Jim Morrison" sounds a lot like (acknowledged influence) the Black Keys -- dig the way the guitar riff alternates low and high strings to make up for the guitar-drums duo's lack of bass. But then the vocals enter: a throaty shout delirious with punk nonsense. Here's the lyric sheet:

Why don't you know Jim Morrison

Why don't you know my Lizard King

Why don't you know my favourite son

Why don't you know America's number one

Whoeerooooo [sic]

Why don't you know Jim Morrison

Why don't you know my favourite son

The video's abundant nudity can perhaps be taken as an homage to Morrison's famed arrest for exposing his own "Lizard King." The band rocks out in (green-screened?) locations including a swimming pool, a science classroom, a ballet studio and a senior center. In several shots guitarist Adison Whitley wears only a sock; in another, he and drummer Fraser Hunter are replaced by nude women.

In a live recording available on the band's Bandcamp, Whitley introduces "Jim Morrison" as follows: "You know that feeling when you get a Nintendo 64 for Christmas? We want you to feel that feeling."
