Against Me!’s ‘Black Me Out’ Video Is Disturbing Arts-and-Crafts

Against Me! 'Black Me Out' Video

Fresh off their performance at the SPIN Stubb’s SXSW party, Against Me! are back with a new video for “Black Me Out,” one of the excellent cuts off their Essential Transgender Dysphoria Blues. Much like the visuals for “FUCKMYLIFE666,” it’s basically a lyric video with an added bit of thought and execution. Frontwoman Laura Jane Grace and the rest of the Florida punk band pop in occasionally, but the real fun is in all the cutouts that bring her words to life. Luckily, they didn’t get too literal when it came to the “I want to piss on the walls of your house” line, but the song’s aggression isn’t lost in the animation (the naked woman and slicing of fingers will certainly make you wince). Check it out above, and catch Against Me! on tour at one of the dates below.
