Music Video of the Day: 68 Guns by The Alarm (1983, directed by ????)


In a video that switches from black-and-white to color, the members of The Alarm are chased through London by the police.  Not surprisingly, both this song and the video were inspired by a book that the lead singer of the Alarm read about street gangs in Glasgow.

68 Guns would go on to become The Alarm’s highest-charting song in the UK, reaching the 17th position.  In the U.S., the song reached number #39 on the Hot Mainstream Rocks chart.  This was the band’s first song to appear on the charts in either nation.

Enjoy!
