There’s a video making the rounds.  It was up on TwitVid, then YouTube, and just found its way to the MTV Iggy Blog.  It’s from a punk rock show in Atlanta, Georgia on January 12th.  You should care about this because:

1. The video was taken by our friend and unofficially official True/Slant photographer, the very ink’d and very happening Matt X. Miller (he took this picture).

2. The video already has over 25k views on the ‘Tube with a bullet.

3. It shows that we can set our differences aside and find common ground, whether you’re a little bit country or a little bit rock-n-roll.

4. It captures a moment in time and sincere, authentic fun.  Remember fun?

From the MTV Iggy Blog:

And yet sometimes, in America, you all sit at the dinner table together. And you understand why he doesn’t want to work. And you like his tattoos. And you think maybe your sister isn’t so shallow, that maybe all she wants is to seek out beauty like we all do, to live in a fluffy, happy world.

In the video below, we see hardcore metalheads in Atlanta — you know, your older brother’s type — in a moment of rare, un-ironic love for their little American sisters.

At a show for hardcore bands Trapper Under Ice, Cruel Hand, Naysayer, and Foundation some smart alec put on Miley Cyrus’ USA hit, “Party in the USA” and what did the boys do? Turn it off? Tear the speakers to pieces? (See that song’s original video here.) Nope, they unabashedly danced, hugged, and sang (nearly) every word. It’s your YouTube of the day. A sneak peek into the weirdness that is America’s Teenage Wasteland:

In the YouTube description, Matt said “It was rad to see hardcore kids take themselves a little less serious and loosen up.”   Funny, that’s exactly what he said to us after taking our True/Slant pictures.
