The punk quartet spoke about the video in a press release.
“The ‘Why’ music video is a tribute to The Decline of Western Civilization, the legendary 1981 documentary about LA punk by Penelope Spheeris, and Spirited Away, one of our favorite Miyazaki movies,” the band say. “It is set at an imaginary Save Music In Chinatown show, part of the series of all-ages matinee fundraisers for music education at Eloise’s school, where we played some of our earliest gigs with some of the musicians from Decline — Alice Bag, Phranc, Keith Morris, Chuck Dukowski — who are now our friends. The art was drawn by Eloise, the flyers are real and no dessert was wasted!”
