Motionless In White – Loud (Fuck It): A Video Breakdown

Fuck fuckity fuck fuck.

The announcement for Warped Tour’s lineup is just around the corner. I know most reading this aren’t exactly on the edge of their seat. In recent years, Warped Tour has shifted away from it’s punk rock roots to a more contemporary lineup. I don’t blame them. It’s the kids that spend the money so you might as well cater to them. There are some rumors going around this year, though, that might make some older fans happy. While unconfirmed, there is talk that Bad Religion, Lagwagon, Hatebreed and Gwar may be taking part this year. Tempting. Then again, Emmure is also rumored to be playing, so y’know, win some, lose some.

Motionless In White actually got their big break playing on Warped Tour. The Scranton, Pennsylvania natives caught the attention of Sawn Miike from Alesana and were eventually signed to Fearless Records. Now on Roadrunner Records, the nu-metalcore band recently released their fourth album, Graveyard Shift. That’s a humble beginnings story. I can’t recall ever listening to the band. It probably had something to do with their image. Was judging a book by its cover the right thing to do? Let’s find out together.

0:03: Nice to see Kat Von D still getting work.
0:07: If Kid Rock shows up, I’m going to be very upset.
0:13: I didn’t know Dope changed their name to Motionless In White.
0:16: That should be a white flag she’s waving.
0:22: Tony Hawk: Sad face Emoticon edition.
0:30: Instead of an empty warehouse, they decided to shoot the video in an empty skate park.
0:38: Nice rhinestone jacket.
0:43: Disco Motionless In White doesn’t advertise.
0:59: Every member of this band has a different gimmick and they’re all terrible.
1:06: He had the same haircut as an Oi! girl at a Dropkick Murphys show.
1:09: Hey, it’s Davey Suicide!
1:16: Angstcore.
1:25: I wonder where he gets his lipstick. Sephora? Sally’s?
1:31: Those studs on the side of his head help him phone home.
1:35: Or maybe they keep his brain from falling out.
1:46: This is the anthem for every kid that needs a ride to the mall on a Friday night.
1:54: All will be forgiven if someone collects S-K-A-T-E letters in this video.
2:00: Aw, he got Gushers juice all over his nice shirt.
2:05: Mom is going to be mad.
2:11: I really hope this doesn’t become a trendy look.
2:17: Although it would be helpful to know who deserves a wedgie the most.
2:36: The nu-metal revival is alive and twitching on the floor.
2:47: Falling in nu-metal love is hard on the knees.
2:53: Great, now light the rest of him on fire.
3:03: I pretty much feel the same way.
3:08: Music critics also give this song one finger up.
3:17: This video has a Moonspell aesthetic, but without the grace, charm, creativity, or years of built-up goodwill.
3:25: Warning: Copious amounts of the fuck-word.
3:36: It turns out that judging a book by its cover is a-okay in this case.
Motionless In White’s album Graveyard Shift (which may or may not be about the Stephen King story/movie) is out now via Roadrunner Records.

  • 365, I am excited to watch this one. I may have to wait until my stomach is empty though.


    This is why we need HB2

  • Oh Lord. I am so glad that the one time I was at a show where these guys were playing, my buddy and I got so smashed that we left before their set.

  • Jay Riemenschneider

    PSA: Parents, this is why you don’t let your kids watch Anime.

    • I watched anime as a kid and look how I turned out

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      It’s funny how times change. When I see a heavily tattooed guy now, I assume they are total pussies.

      CSB: I know the parent of the guitar player.

  • Howard Dean
    • CyberneticOrganism

      Yikes, never turn your back on sheep

      • Howard Dean

        For real. Would not be shocked if this dude ended up paralyzed or dead.

  • Jay Riemenschneider

    The singer looks like Davey Havok crossdressing as Gwen Stefani.

  • I get it, the goth look is there to distract from the fact that they are a C rate Marilyn Manson.

    • RepostedAvengedSevenfoldFan2

      if these people were real goths they should be able to invade rome.

    Ah I get it, it’s a cover of this:

    • Waynecro

      Dude. Dude. I thought exactly the same thing.

      • Óðinn
        • Waynecro

          I love that album. I saw Immolation last night, so I’m on a big Immolation kick today. I think I have to blast Unholy Cult on my Zune during today’s workout.

          • Óðinn

            Fuck yeah. Immolation. I’m sure the show was great.

          • Waynecro

            It was fantastic. People lost their shit when the band played “Father, You’re Not a Father” and “Immolation.” I bought a hoodie from Robert Vigna.

          • Óðinn

            Sweet. Glad you had a good time, Waynecro. Have not seen Immolation live yet.

          • Waynecro

            Thanks! I’ve wanted to see Immolation for years, so I was pretty jazzed about finally having the chance.

          • Count_Breznak

            So you had more luck with the sound engineer than I did last time I saw em. They are awesome live when you can actually hear what they are playing.

          • more beer

            A vast majority of the people I know, who saw them last week. Left either after Immolation. Or only stayed for a couple of songs of the Cavalera set. Myself included.

          • Waynecro

            They were so good–tight as hell and brutally heavy. Immolation is definitely one of my favorite death-metal bands of all time.

          • more beer

            They always bring it and always have.

          • Óðinn

            I once went to a Priest concert to see Megadeth and Testament, and then left when Priest hit the stage. I know many people will disagree with that, but I’ve always found Priest mostly boring.

          • more beer

            It happens you can’t like every band.

          • Doom Scientist

            I tend to find most of the bands discussed here unlistenable, but I still come anyways. No biggie, can’t like everything.

          • NDG

            I saw Priest in 2008, around the time Nostradamus was released, and had low expectations. I’m a massive Priest fan but still found them to be a little dull.

            There were some genuine high points though…oh, the costume changes!

          • Óðinn

            Haha! At least they had the costume changes.

          • GoatForest

            I actually have the same thing with Priest. Other than Painkiller, I never really got into them, but my brother adores them.

          • Óðinn

            Yeah, Painkiller had more punch than most of their music. They should do more stuff like that.

        • Sid Vicious Promos

          I’m seeing In Flames at the venue near me. Im also seeing Todd Rundgren.

    • this is a jam f’real tho

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Better than anything from MIW, for damn sure.

  • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

    I mean, this is fucking awful…but even that isn’t gonna stop my good mood today. I’ve got the song below stuck in my head all day. It’s just so…addictive.

    • Depechemodeisgangsta

      That’s a “Banger” like the kids say.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        It must be, like, one of the top 5 greatest songs in existence.

  • Waynecro

    This video is the worst thing I’ve seen and heard today; your comments about the video are the best thing I’ve read today. Nice work!

  • Primordial Chaos

    White fails, for any information click play, watch the video and have a facepalm:

    • Óðinn

      Rob Ford, Canada’s answer to Donald Trump.

      • more beer

        But at least he is dead. We can’t say the same about Trump.

        • Óðinn

          Yup. Ford was kind enough to be terminally ill on top of the fact that he was an idiot.

          • more beer

            Being a crackhead alcoholic, tends to have that effect.

        • TheGranulatingDarkSatanicMilfs

          Where’s John Hinckley when you need him?

          • more beer

            He was a terrible shot. He couldn’t get the job done correctly.

  • Count_Breznak

    You never know, maybe Emmure do another one of those kickass ride the lightning covers.
