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

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!
