The Used Unleash Powerful ‘Iddy Biddy’ Music Video

The Used have just released the music video for their single ‘Iddy Biddy,’ and it’s a clip that refuses to pull any punches. With biting, no holds barred social commentary, this song pretty much goes for the jugular.

With grainy footage of bombs dropping, monies being exchanged, and George Bush’s visage morphing into current President Barack Obama’s profile, the message behind ‘Iddy Biddy’ is pretty clear. We are living in greedy and near apocalyptic times, where consumerist tendencies may have overtaken our grip on humanity. Quick cuts of soldiers going to war interspersed with Bob Barker hosting ‘The Price Is Right’ is a not too subtle dig on our state of affairs.

There is a method to the madness behind ‘Iddy Biddy,’ as the song adds to a huge theme that’s explored in the band’s just released EP ‘The Ocean of the Sky.’ “The Used want to save the world,” says singer Bert McCracken. “They have created an EP called ‘The Ocean of the Sky’ that could possibly achieve this goal. Establishing abolishment of class system hierarchy between artist and patron; an EP with a deep message; written by the people, for the people with a conscience hope for a brighter future.”

The EP’s tracks included the aforementioned ‘Iddy Biddy,’ ‘Quixotica,’ ‘Thought Criminal,’ ‘The Ocean of the Sky’ and ‘Tethys.’ The group will spend the rest of this month as performers on the Vans Warped Tour. Their most recent album, ‘Vulnerable,’ was released last year and debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200 charts.
