Powerman 5000 Premiere “Sid Vicious In A Dress” Music Video

Powerman 5000 have premiered a new video for “Sid Vicious In A Dress,” via Loudwire. This song is from the band’s new album “New Wave,” which will be released on October 27.

Spider One commented:

“Visually, I wanted the video to feel like we stepped back in time, got transported back to the Rathskeller in Boston or CBGBs. Basically a dirty, smelly claustrophobic mess.

Over the years, Sid Vicious has become the poster child for chaos and destruction. The video takes that concept and manifests it into the form of a beautiful girl. The title sort of says it all.

Conceptually, it was very important to not to let this video become a typical rock n roll bad girl cliche video. This is not a lap dance video, this is violence!”
