Guilty Pleasure of the Night: “New Low” by Middle Class Rut

I’m watching MTV U, and they just played the video for “New Low” by Middle Class Rut which apparently was quite popular on “alternative” rock stations in 2007-2008. I’ve never heard this song, and I can tell by this totally over-the-top video that it’s a band that’s not very “cool,” but there’s something about this song I really kinda enjoy.

Here’s a video of some chick covering it:

Here’s the official music video:

I like the twangy westerny vibe to it…

According to the Middle Class Rut’s tour dates, they are playing with both Neon Trees and My Chemical Romance, so yes, they definitely seem to be up my soft spot for horrible music alley.
