Bloc Party's Kele Okereke

With a pulsing piano melody and skittering, rave-style beats, Bloc Party's new song "One More Chance" is the perfect soundtrack for a night on the dance floor. But in the tune's just-released music video, the lads have something else in mind -- an evening at home with the world's creepiest family!

In the clip for "One More Chance" -- Bloc Party's only release since 2008's Intimacy -- the quartet invade a totally screwball family's suburban home and watch on as their lives unfold: the overly-energetic father, sporting thick serial killer eye glasses and mutton-chops, forces drummer Matt Tong to watch him tap out a tune on his keyboard; the scantily-clad mother locks frontman Kele Okereke in the bathroom, gets all gussied up, and then has a mental breakdown; the pony-tailed brother blasts a boom box and tap- and break-dances for guitarist Russell Lissack; and the young daughter recruits bassist Gordon Moakes for a Ouija board session -- which ends in a demonic disaster.

Adding to the weird factor: The song's lyrics about "giving love one more chance," which -- only by a gigantic stretch of the imagination -- have any applicability to the video's visuals. But hey, you never know -- the 'burbs really are batshit crazy! Prepare to be creeped out.
