Rad Max - "Flix from '86"

The newest song from Portland, OR's Rad Max won't be mistaken for high art. But sometimes, especially now, you just want a fun song. "Flix from '86" is literally about movies that came out in 1986. It's filled with references from Top Gun, Three Amigos, Little Shop of Horrors, Chopping Mall, and a ton more. Maybe I'm showing my age, but I have such an intense nostalgia for the vast majority of movies they mention, so I'm already sold. Plus, it's just a fun alt-rock song. It's very silly, but the song is the same kind of escapism that the movies referenced provided, and couldn't we all use a little of that right now?

You can watch the video for "Flix from '86" below. Straight to Video, the debut album from Rad Max, will be out April 10. You can pre-order a copy here. For more on Rad Max, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
