"Medicate" Music Video Released on Yahoo! Music

Yahoo! Music is premiering the music video for "Medicate" here.

The video is mostly energetic shots of the band playing live, intercut with shots of Davey and a girl, while Jade, Hunter, and Adam bleed gold during the bridge.

Thanks to Chad for the tip!

  11. I miss the plot that is normally in their videos. But for a performance video it was pretty good. Kudos to them.

    Not a horrible video... but definitely their worst when you compare it to all their others (look at Silver and Cold, Girl's Not Grey, Miss Murder, and even Days of the Phoenix)

  17. the video is also on their official website

    ReplyDelete
  18. Omg I know what this video reminds me of now! It was on the tip of my tongue. American Idiot, haha.Ew. greenday.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Alright video. It isn't bad, but I'd rather have a story or something than just then playing.Did anyone else notice the hiphop/rap tags?

    ReplyDelete
  20. It said Latino Pop a moment ago haha.Imagine an AFI latino pop record.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I've seen "pop" "teen pop" and now it's " The coffeehouse" And Hunter's also bleeding gold. I don't think Adam is though...unless it's his wrist that's bleeding.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Omg.. AFI featuring their new albumEstamos bailarines^^ Lol we are dancers :|

    ReplyDelete
  23. NOOOO i dont want jade to die.. i hate those music videos where he dies it make me cry like i am now!! :((

    ReplyDelete
  24. Hunter, Adam and Jade bleed!Pay close attention.They all died in the end.Great video though!

    ReplyDelete
  25. DID you guys catch the AWESOME OWL IN THE BACKROUND

    ReplyDelete
  26. They need to go 1 video withoutA) An antagonist womanB) Davey/ANYONE dying.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Get out of here, Lady Gaga!Watching the "Totalimmortal" video after this was weird. I love that song. As for this video, it's boring. I don't really care about music videos, though. They're all boring now. And not every AFI video has had a plot, guys.

    ReplyDelete
  28. They've done this twice now, or had this twice now...The logo for their current album in necklace form. First the three bunnies that Adam had in one interview, and now the Crash Love logo. Bah I want them!!!

    the video is not bad, but after a strong video for love like winter, this is sort of a step backwards. its not horrible, they have had rock out videos (leaving song part 2, the first cut video of girls not grey, totalimmortal, and even days of the pheonix) granted they had other elements to it.i have to admit the hot chick in the video was totally out of place in the video and song, im sure there is some symbolism to her presence but off the top i cant think of anything.again, not bad, but a step backwards considering last albums videos.End transmission and even beautiful thieves have a very strong sound that would be perfect and flow that would make for a very strong runner up to LLW. Hope they do another plot based song

  30. This video is excellent. Completely different than anything they've done in recent videos and the use of color is very cool. Not every video needs some weird plot element - Days of the Phoenix, a classic AFI video, has no plot in it whatsoever. In terms of the girl, she works perfect with the theme of this record. This record was a commentary about society and the downfall of celebrity culture. This girl is very likely supposed to represent the Paris Hiltons or the Lady Gagas, which I'm sure are some of the reasons why Davey became disgusted with the whole culture in the first place.

  31. I swear the chick in the video is Paris Hilton or even possibly Marissa Festa (Jade's girlfriend)? Is it just me?

    ReplyDelete
  32. sorry Kevin but Davey went on Lady Gaga`s concert to support her...haha,so its not her in vid and this girl in vid is just stupid and no need for her at all,i hope there will be a version without her XP

    ReplyDelete
  33. Ok well I believe it is marissa but PARIS HILTON?? NOT EVEN CLOSE

    ReplyDelete
  34. @Junkactually she does flow nicely with what the records about, Kevin is right, just not about the Lady Gaga part :P

    ReplyDelete
  35. They would put Marissa in there, haha

    ReplyDelete
  36. I made this :Dit's pretty lame, but it's using one of the pictures i screenshoted up there ^^http://i206.photobucket.com/albums/bb269/beastandtheparade/MedicateSiggy.png

  37. Ok, sorry, but the girl, whoever she is, has got to go. 1) Um, random, unnecessary. 2) Not to be all complain-y and annoying, but she's got some cray-cray hair and she reminds me of Courtney Love. Courtney Love is 45. (Although with Interscope, I wouldn't be surprised if it actually is her.) That's just my opinion.Not to say that every AFI video has some sort of plot, but I think that maybe the girl could possibly represent fame and lust, and if you chase that, it could be the end of you. This is not my favorite AFI video, but it's still pretty good.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Interesting. I love the Crash<3 necklace she's wearing, and Davey has in his hand at the end. :) I hope hey make another video. And I really don't understand why the chick was in there...? When she was laying down for that one shot and it looked like she had no shirt on I was like, WTF is this supposed to be from like Paris Hilton's sex tape?! And then the video kinda went to hell...

    ReplyDelete
  39. Or, it looked like she had no shirt on.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You guys fucking complain to much.I didn't mind the video, better than the last tripe they put out.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Yo, guys, it's not Marissa Festa.

    ReplyDelete
  42. who ever she is there is really no reason for her plus she looks really stupid,i never thought AFI will have almost naked girl in their vid,and the necklace is just there so people would buy it,its kinda like one big commercial,its sad..hope next vid will be more original then this

    ReplyDelete
  43. Love Like WInter was so much better than this, I don't know what you are talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  44. The video looks great! It's exactly where it needs to be. It's a performance video, not a concept video. Just like the album it's straight forward. The song takes precedence. Should they be known for their videos or their music? What's more important? It's only the first release, there will be more. As far as what is shown, what is there to understand about Davey and the girl? They just fucked and he's contemplating why he resorts to this behavior. Medicate? Right?... I guess 15 years olds can't understand that less is more.

    ReplyDelete
  45. @d I agree with everything you said I couldnt have said it better myself. Except the "I guess 15 year olds can't understand" I'm not 15 but that wasn't really necessary

    ReplyDelete
  46. @rajkoNo where near a commercial.. very sad you even compare the two.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Drew, I don't know what YOU are talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hey maybe he has a point;Shitty emo video featuring an oversized fringe and death aimed at 13 year old girls > Mature video featuring badass shit and a guitar solo aimed at mad cunts.I take it back man, I take it back. Worst video ever.
