The video for "Blood for Poppies," the first single from Garbage's new album Not Your Kind Of People, refers directly to several art film classics, including the eyeball-slicing scene from Luis Bunuel's Un Chien Andalou. (That bit was famously referenced by the Pixies in their classic tune "Debaser.") The song itself borrows from a famous source as well – while "Poppies" mostly has the sound of the band's Nineties hits, the "oh-oh-ohhh" hook is lifted from Laura Branigan's Eighties smash "Self Control."
