We've been on an LCD Soundsystem kick ever since the band announced their final show at MSG earlier this month. And all the ensuing chaos and conspiracy theories couldn't eclipse the fact that the band has made some pretty terrific music, including "Dance Yrself Clean," the first track from their final album This Is Happening. An unofficial video was released today for the song, and it features the Muppets (and a young Cookie Monster) performing it to a delighted crowd of onlookers in Brighton, England. Directed by Javier Douglas, the piece also includes scenes of Animal and Cookie getting hammered on Kronenbourg on the beach. It's the rare video which makes the song even better. Check it out below:
Of course, this isn't the first time a Muppet has rocked out to an LCD Soundsystem song. The music video for the single "New York I Love You But You're Bringing Me Down" from their 2007 album Sound of Silver features a love-lorn and solitary Kermit singing the torch song at different locations around the city.
Were you able to get tickets to one of the four added dates at Terminal 5? Those shows sold out in less than an hour, according to Rolling Stone. And because of some of the measures the band took to ensure there wouldn't be more scalper problems this time, there aren't any available on StubHub. But you can still get tickets to the MSG show on April 2 for a couple hundred (or thousand) dollars.
