Watch Yeah Yeah Yeahs' Intense, Slightly NSFW 'Sacrilege' Video

'Mosquito' buzzes into town on April 16

Violence almost always turns out to be acceptable in American society, but sexuality is another story. Yeah Yeah Yeahs' new video for gospel-rock anthem "Sacrilege" cryptically riffs on this theme, with a sinister manhunt and womanhunt that involves someone making out all over town. Directed by Megaforce (Madonna, Kid Cudi), the clip shows just enough breast that your boss might deem it NSFW sacrilege. And it ends with a wedding, though there are no overt references to today's Supreme Court oral arguments legalizing same-sex marriage. The New York trio's new album Mosquito is due out on April 16, and this song is sacrilicious.
