The Dave Grohl-directed video for Soundgarden's King Animal growler "By Crooked Steps" puts a lighthearted spin on the intensely riffing music, making room for a Segway-riding motorcycle gang, a hipster DJ, and Deadmau5.
A new behind-the-scenes clip details the making of the video, including interviews with Soundgarden, Grohl, Deadmau5, the actor playing the DJ, and the actress who plays the sloppily making-out bartender. It turns out the idea came to Grohl almost fully formed. "I kind of come up with these little videos in my head," he says. Cornell calls the video "an awesome contrast to the song." Let them tell the story, above.
