There's part of me that wants the entire duration of this song to repeat the line "Girls gone wild / Girls gone wild" and nothing else. It's a live favorite of theirs, for the obvious incongruities of two guys in tighty (blue) whities singing about drunk coeds being exploited. Patrick Kennely does a pretty great job of making found footage (and Pam Anderson in Barbed Wire) into a VHS collage of seediness and skanks, but we were really waiting for a few explosions in the songs dynamics to be matched by some in the visuals. Look out for Captain Ahab in Europe this fall.
