What the hell is going on with all of the wrestling themed music videos and songs this year? The Mountain Goats released an entire concept album built around wrestling. And a host of other acts have released music videos that feature the sport heavily. And now Wavves
are the next band to join in on the fun with their video for "Way Too Much." I'm the resident Baeble wrestling fan, but I'm not particularly crazy about "garbage wrestling" which is wrestling slang for a promotion that uses lots of props and weapons for "hardcore" matches. It's very dangerous for the performers (wrestling isn't fake; it's choreographed), and I just don't want to watch folks jamming thumbtacks into each other. But that's the route Wavves goes for this video with the promotion they chose to work with on the video, and it becomes a brutal contrast to a track that is as close to being a straight up pop song as Wavves will ever write.
