Rob Zombie: 'The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God'

This video is a mix of horror, heavy metal and a dose of Pee Wee Herman humor. "The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God" is over-the-top — in the best of ways — bookended by the devil himself. Musician, film director and producer Rob Zombie emailed his description of his new music video to me. He wrote:

"I figured that a mixture of Three Amigos with a Dia de los Muertos twist by way of the opening credit sequence of Natural Born Killers hosted by a Satanic Paul Lynde would make the perfect video for 'The Life and Times of a Teenage Rock God.'"

The song is from Rob Zombie's sixth album solo album since his days with his band White Zombie. The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser has been out a few months and there's lots of love for this one. The man has sold 15 million records, though these days is known more as a film director, including a remake of John Carpenter's Halloween in 2007. Give this little film a look and listen, it's more silly than scary and that was just fine for me.
