Sure, we've ridden amusement park rides before, but none have been nearly as weird as the one that Black Kids ride in the video for "Look at Me (When I Rock Wichoo)." In the clip, the Floridian quintet board a roller coaster inside a gigantic bass drum before being transported into a mystical world of flying cars, funky costumes, and vintage Saturday morning cartoons -- trippy!

"I don't believe in happenstance / You're going to give me your last dance," lead singer Reggie Youngblood coyly croons at the camera while sister/keyboardist/backup singer Ali wards off evil skull-faced warlocks with her newfound magical powers -- um, not exactly your typical Disneyland fare. Partie Traumatic is out now on Almost Gold/Columbia, and the band is featured in the August issue of SPIN.
