Maybe if you combined Jimmy Eat World’s “The Middle” underwear pool party video with a scene from House of 1000 Corpses, you’d get something like this.
Modest Mouse has shared the music video for its successful single “Lampshades on Fire.” It features Orange Is the New Black actress Natasha Lyonne singing with the band, and joining in a bizarre woodland punk house party, with fireworks, naked people, people piercing their cheeks, solo cups being slapped out of hands, and tongues in mousetraps.
Give our Q&A with MM frontman Isaac Brock a read and decide if this fits the band’s off-kilter persona. We think it does. Oddly enough, the single is faring quite well on the rock charts — “Lampshades On Fire” currently leads Alternative Songs, after topping Adult Alternative Songs for several weeks.

The song comes from the new album Strangers To Ourselves, which came out March 17.
