The All-American Rejects last scored a smash hit in 2008 with their break-up anthem “Gives You Hell,” which climbed to number 4 on the Hot 100, and, as of this week, has been downloaded more than 4 million times.
Unfortunately, the band’s next two singles, “The Wind Blows” and “I Wanna” couldn’t reach any higher than No. 113 and No. 92, respectively, and they disappeared for a couple of years.
Now, the spiky pop-rock Oklahomans are back with a new single, “Beekeeper’s Daughter,” and a colorful video to accompany it. Watch lead singer Tyson Ritter gallivant through choreographed dance scenes on a Hollywood lot (oddly reminiscent of Chris Brown’s “Yeah 3X” video — without the martial arts) before headlining some sort of celebratory bumblebee parade:
What do you think of the video? Will this return the Rejects to happily un-rejected status, or might it struggle like some of their last few singles?
