What's black-and-white and red all over? The new video for The Pretty Reckless' "Take Me Down."

The visual drains all color from the Taylor Momsen-fronted band except for streaks of blood red painting the background. "Take Me Down" is the lead single from the rockers' Who You Selling For album, due Oct. 21 through Razor & Tie.

"Take Me Down" follows three consecutive No. 1 hits for the band on the Mainstream Rock Songs chart, where the single has so far peaked at No. 2 and is still gaining at radio.

Fans have been eating up the video and the song's '90s throwback vibe, making it a Facebook and Twitter trending topic after its release on Thursday (Sept. 29). The excitement around the video helped drive the track to the top of the Billboard + Twitter Trending 140 for the first time.
