Hexing Releases Video for New Single “Time Flies”
What would rock and roll be without wrestling? What would wrestling be without rock and roll? Would the music we love today even exist if there weren’t a gaggle of roided up, bleach-blond muscle men suplexing the shit out of each other every Sunday night on pay per view? I’m going to say yes. In fact, I think I’m even going to say the WWE’s golden era from 1982 to 1993 has almost nothing to do with the timeline leading up to modern music, with the obvious exception of this gem and its wealth of inspiration.
But I’m sure we all agree wrestling is tight, “tight” being the only adjective that perfectly suits the mild homoeroticism of the WWE that’s gotten us all through some tough times. And at the very least, the hilarity and heartbreak of professional wrestling evokes a certain kind of electrified nostalgia that we simultaneously want to leave in our past and take with us. Enter Muskegon rock and rollers Hexing.
“‘Time Flies’ is a song about growth, the transition between your early and mid twenties where you party less and try to figure out what you’re going to do with your life,” said Hexing’s bassist Derek McAllister about the band’s new single and music video.
“The music video is pretty much about a guy who bullies people and then Santa beats the shit out of him,” McAllister said, and beat the shit out him he does! Austin Quillen, guitarist, vocalist and apparently classically trained Smackdown superstar plays Santa, throwing down some wicked Stone-Cold-era moves on some dude that looks like your middle school bully if he were related to Joey Ramone. The video doesn’t end with one of those disclaimers that says “nobody was injured during production” so I think we can assume that Quillen killed the bully in a beer soaked piledriver.
So if you’re into post-punk, wrestling and wanna see Santa kill a man without remorse, check out Hexing’s Music video for “Time Flies” right here:
