Kings of Leon Release Epic Video for ‘Beautiful War’
Kings of Leon’s latest album title, ‘Mechanical Bull,’ takes on new meaning in their video for ‘Beautiful War.’ Throw in some actual bulls, cowboy hats, beer, jealousy and just a tiny bit of grandeur, and you get this seven-minute clip from the Nashville rockers.
The video follows our bearded protagonist on his journey toward redemption, following a night out with his lady and her brother that ends in tragedy. He gets that redemption after showing off his bull-riding prowess and giving a heartfelt apology to his beloved in the jail yard. Water under the bridge!
Ultimately, the new clip’s themes appear to be a literal take on ‘Beautiful War,’ in which frontman Caleb Followill sings, “Love don’t mean nothing / Unless there’s something worth fighting for.”
