No other musician in the metal atmosphere better epitomizes the YOLO lifestyle than former WASP guitarist Chris Holmes. He emphasizes that lifestyle in his new "The Devil Made Me Do It" music video, where he flips off the police and brags about driving around drunk.
You may remember Holmes blamed black culture on ruining heavy metal, which is why he sold his piece-of-shit car and moved to France. In the process, he created the best/worst music video of 2015, "Born Work Die," actually two if you also count the equally amazing "Let It Roar." His failed attempt at selling a reality show led to the release of an incredible documentary.
"Don't tell me what to do, I wouldn't listen anyway. Got no trust in the law, I don't really care what they say," Holmes belts out at the start of the video. Then, comes the shocking revelation.
"I love to drink and drive. Hangin' out all night. Party all day with my friends, then I get drunk and fight" he continues, proudly. He eventually says he wakes up next day and "the devil made me do it," the hook of the song.
If you weren't sure if Chris was serious, the second verse begins "So I'm driving my car, and I'm drinking my beer…"
Honestly, the best part of the music video is watching Chris pantomime the lyrics of the song. For example, here he recreates how he's drinking a beer while driving:
I must admit, after writing about this song, and listening a few times, the hook is indeed an earworm and got stuck in my head. Needless to say, Metal Injection does not suggest you drink and drive. Anyway, here is Chris' song:
