i was just thinking about this rock video I saw a few years ago on MTV and i can't remember anything about who or what the artist/song was?! It's driving me nuts. All i remember was that the video starts with the band playing on a stage that has lots of blacks and whites everywhere. The beat is very steady and driving...like donk--donk--donk--donk, quarter notes, but alternating low--high--low--high. Then some cool visual effects were happening with the cables and stuff, I can't remember exactly, but something like the mic cable becoming like a liquid or something. Man, I just don't remember.
It's a rock band of some sort, but the song has a very oldish, classic-rock feel to it. it's from the mid 2000's, maybe 2006 or so. It was a very popular video, maybe it won awards. I want to say it's a band like the Killers, Strokes, White Stripes, something like that. but I've been searching forever now and I can't find it. if this rings a bell with anyone, please let me know. Don't you hate it when this happens??
