NOTHING MORE GOES AFTER CORPORATIONS IN ‘MR. MTV’ VIDEO

338131-267531.jpg

Nothing More skewers the music business and corporate America in its new video for "Mr. MTV," a track from the band's self-titled debut album. The clip features the Texas-based group playing the song as a bunch of big business types watch. Meanwhile, young people are tied to chairs and forced to absorb a steady stream of advertising with their eyes taped open. The video ends in rebellion.

Frontman Jonny Hawkins told us that the song uses MTV as a metaphor for a much bigger problem: "It's not just about MTV specifically, but we use them as an example for a path that many individuals or other companies can go down in life when they choose to value money or ratings or something more than doing something that's, I think, bigger than all that."

Hawkins doesn't hold back in the song's lyrics, with a chorus that says, "Empty me / Empty nation / Empty us of inspiration / Bastard sons and broken daughters / All bow down to our corporate father.”

Nothing More is currently out on the road with Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat and Hellyeah. That tour will arrive in Baltimore on Thursday (September 24th).

Nothing More's debut disc also includes the Top 10 rock radio track "This Is The Time (Ballast)."
