Music Video of the Day: Mother by Danzig (1988, directed by Ric Menello)


Originally, I was going to post this on Sunday but this is probably not an appropriate Mother’s Day song. One rumor is that this song is about a young Satanist telling his parents not to try to lead him away from the lifestyle that he wants. Danzig, himself, once said that the mother he was singing to was meant to be Tipper Gore, who was big on banning heavy metal music and whose then-husband, Albert Gore, was actually a part of a Senate committee looking into “obscene” music.

This is the first video for Mother. Danzig redid the song in 1993 and came out with a second video as well. I prefer the first video because Danzig doesn’t dance. As Beavis and Butthead said when they viewed Danzig shaking his hips in the second video, “That little dance wasn’t very cool.”

Enjoy!
