Music Video Of The Day: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion 'Betty Vs. The NYPD'

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 10, 2015 10:00PM

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion's new album Freedom Tower - No Wave Dance Party 2015 is out in a few short weeks and the band has released a second video leading up to its release. "Betty vs the NYPD" sounds like classic Blues Explosion, a furious two minutes of raw gut punch fury and attitude. The video stars actor and comedian Bridget Everett playing the part of Betty, and as far as we can tell, when Betty takes on the NYPD, much screaming and dancing ensues.
