The World Loves Us And Is Our Bitch
See those ugly fuckers in that photo right up there? That’s Chris, Tommy and Paul, looking exactly how you think they might look after all these years/beers. No idea who the blonde dude is, but he clearly wants you to smell his finger.

While you await the inevitable leak––the Internet has turned the music business into your grandmammy's withered Froot Rollup™ vagina––relive the glory that is the video for “Bastards of Young” here.
