OK Go Covers Morrissey–and Donald Trump Isn’t Going to Like It

OK Go is known for their elaborate Rube Goldberg-style impossible-to-shoot videos (this, for example), but as Donald Trump prepares to be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States, they thought they’d issue this simple lyric video of their just-recorded version of Morrisey’s “Intereating Drug.”

Singer Damian Kulash: “I was listening to Morrissey around the time of the conventions last year and when he belted ‘There are some bad people on the rise’ – that fabulous opening line of Interesting Drug – I felt like he’d written it about the very moment we were living through. Now, with this bewildering, surreal inauguration looming, it seems like a good time to share those poignant lines again.”
