Teenage Bottlerocket’s “They Call Me Steve” music video is an ode to Minecraft

Teenage Bottlerocket

I’ll be honest: I do not understand Minecraft, and just saying that makes me feel super-old and out of touch. However, I do understand Wyoming pop-punks Teenage Bottlerocket, and I know that “They Call Me Steve” is a catchy-as-hell pogo-punk number that just so happens to be about a computer game. Take a look at the video for the track below and either giggle or scratch your head at it. (Guess which I did.) The song is taken from the band’s new album, Tales From Wyoming, which comes out March 31 on Rise Records.
