The Black Keys and RZA, ‘The Baddest Man Alive’ – New Video
We’ve been hoping for this video from the very minute we heard that the Black Keys had teamed up with RZA on the song ‘The Baddest Man Alive’ for the soundtrack to the forthcoming Quentin Tarantino-produced flick ‘The Man With the Iron Fists.’ And now that it’s here, let’s just say this: It doesn’t disappoint.
The Keys’ Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney and rapper RZA are waiting for their check after a meal at a Chinese restaurant, but when it arrives, the waitress only brings one fortune cookie. All three musicians hungrily eye the cookie for a brief moment, then a fierce struggle breaks as Auerbach delivers a direct headbutt. Soon, food is involved, and everything from fish and lettuce to noodles and the chopsticks themselves are sent flying in the comically violent clip.
‘The Man With the Iron Fists’ soundtrack drops Oct. 23 release, but for now, you can stream it below. The flick hits screens Nov. 2.
