Remembrance of Videos Past #40: Hayden, "Bad as it Seems"

Hayden is like Beck without the humor. Lemme give that some positive spin: this song preceded Sea Change by a good seven years. In '96 all Beck songs had bleeps blips and chocolate chips. This song was just a summer bummer. I know this video doesn't go as far back as most RVPs, but consider that this video had decent rotation on MTV whereas nowadays emo and neogrunge get the spotlight. Yes, we've gotten to a point in which a Beck wannabe with a harmonica and shitty rhymes makes us sigh and say those were the days.
