Music Video of the Day: Dirty Black Summer by Danzig (1992, directed by Anton Corbijn)


Best known as one of the Danzig songs that is not a remake of Mother, Dirty Black Summer appeared on Danzig’s third album, How The Gods Kill.  It was one of the more popular songs to appear on that album (which, overall, is considered to be one of Danzig’s best) and the band continues to regularly perform it to this day.

The video is unique because it was directed by Anton Corbijn, the Dutch photographer who directed videos from Depeche Mode, U2, and Nirvana.  (He was the director behind the video for HeartShaped Box).  Corbijn has since gone on to direct feature films as well, Control, The American, and Most Wanted Man.

Long before Hugh Jackman got the role, Glenn Danzig was considered for the role of Wolverine in a potential X-Men feature film.  I think he would have rocked that roll.

Enjoy!
