In the Ocean (and in Bed) With the All-American Rejects: Behind "The Wind Blows"

April 16, 2009 4:49 PM ET

Sometimes rock stars suffer for their art, like All-American Rejects, who dove into 50-degree water while filming the video for their next single, the dreamy, synth-heavy "The Wind Blows." Go inside the band's shoot in this exclusive behind-the-scenes video that finds the band — fresh off the Number One success of hot single "Gives You Hell" — frolicking in the Pacific Ocean and worrying about their man-parts (frontman Tyson Ritter has a few concerns — watch the clip to see what's up).

The Oklahoma pop-rockers recruited Rich Lee (Fergie's "Clumsy") for the clip, which finds Ritter playing romantic lead in what he calls "the sexiest video of our lives." Ritter kindly demonstrates the power of a wind machine, hops in bed with his female co-star and braves the waves along with his equally frigid bandmates to tell the story of a "love story that doesn't end bad, it just does." And stay tuned for the full video, which premieres on April 27th.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
