Arcade Fire, “The Suburbs”

The official video for the title track from Arcade Fire’s new album is made up of nothing but clips from Over the Edge.  According to its wikipedia entry, the 1979 movie, which starred Matt Dillon, was based on a 1974 San Francisco Examiner article titled “Mouse Packs: Kids on a Crime Spree.”  The movie was also the inspiration for Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” video.
