This year, I’m trying to bring lots of new content to the blog, besides just the album reviews and artist spotlights, so I am also throwing in music video reviews. Today, I’m reviewing Bad Bones “American Days” video. “American Days” is off their album High Rollers. If you’re not familiar with Bad Bones, you can check out the post I did on them here.
They filmed this video while in the United States, it highlights a photoshoot they did and them playing at Whiskey a GoGo. It’s like a vlogg of showing them enjoying life and having a good time. I like how they incorporated scenes from their show throughout the video and not just scenes from the photoshoot or while exploring California. This video gives a good look at both their personality and their musical talent all in one.
The song itself has an old-school rock metal sound. They also have the old-school metal rock look. Bad Bones is a hidden gem, that needs to be heard. This is not some watered down rock music. It’s a song you will want to add to your playlist.

Check out the video for “American Days”.
