Two weeks old, but a fairly nice tribute even if you don't like the band.

Sounds like a shitty Social Distortion cover band.

can't delete the commments? oO

anyway, I'm sure this video means much to them, and it's done quite nicely. But it doesn't bring
anything new or interesting from a musical POV

I don't know about you, but writing a heartfelt acoustic song in honor of your fallen comrade seems entirely logical to me and it really shouldn't be "experimental" or "musically fresh" or anything. I'm sure you all hoped they'd write a brutal death metal song where they curse and blame god for taking The Rev away from them but come on.

Good video, the last half was particularly powerful. It turns from a meh song into a good song when that solo comes in.

I don't think it's a good song at all. The songwriting just falls flat. And the singer... Uh.

I have to agree that the singer is meh and some of the lyrics at the beginning don't quite fit, but really it's just their own goodbye and memorial song and there's no reason to hate on it.

I thought it was a sweet video. Gotta remember that these guys were just a small band at one point, all close friends (since probably before they actually formed the band) that saw the highs and lows of their careers together. Seemed like a very sincere video to me.

Gotta put aside the hate, at least for this. ;)

I thought he left the band, I didn't know he died, and I was gonna say this was quite embarrassing. But now I can see the point and it makes a little more sense. Song wasn't good though.

Agree with Andcas, even if you don't like them, respect this video. Well done, RIP The Rev

I didnt think it was a bad song at all. Maybe it was because i had a little more respect for the song before even hearing it, being how it was about a dead friend

The part with the kids and driving around was silly. Second half with the real clips was great.

Shadows ruins this by trying to make himself the main focus for like half of the video
