Video: Fucked Up's "Queen of Hearts" Is for the Children, by the Children

"Hello, my name is David!"
"Hello, my name is David!"

What will be the third amazing song of 2011 to feature a classroom motif? Following the well-stomped tracks of tUnE-yArDs' "Bizness" video, more children have been co-opted for the cause of amazing songcraft for Fucked Up's "Queen of Hearts." One of the year's most memorable tracks from the Goliath-sized David Comes to Life gets an epic treatment visually and a compelling vocal upgrade likely to soften some of the folks who can't handle a lot of screaming.

In a move that puts every Kidz Bop compilation to shame, the Canadian melodic hardcore group overdubs the voices of young children in a one-room schoolhouse over Damian "Pink Eyes" Abraham's roars and guest vocals by Cults' Madeline Follin. It's downright adorable and artistic!
