THE KILL by 30 Seconds to Mars

In my quest to play more music videos than MTV, here’s the latest installment of Music Video Monday.

Jared Leto is the frontman of 30 Seconds to Mars, and he was an actor first. He also directs these music videos, which is why the band’s videos rock so hard. (If you read the credits, the director has a silly name. Post a comment, whoever sees that name first.)

So: here’s the video, which obviously pays deep homage to THE SHINING.

  21. I remember loving this video when it first came out, it was very representative of the teen angst at the time ;)

    I also like that Jared directs them under his silly-sounding alias, it somehow really works!

  22. It is very The Shining, isn’t it. Bartholomew Cubbins is a silly name, indeed. Something bothered me about the makeup all through the video, though. It seemed… I don’t know, off somehow. I’ll have to think about it.
