Music Video Analysis 30 Seconds to Mars The Kill (Bury Me)
The Kill (Bury Me) 30 seconds to Mars are an Alternative rock band and just like some other bands similar to 30 seconds to mars have a surreal feel about their videos. This music video I particular is like a movie with opening credits and finishing credits.
Goodwin The video applies to Goodwin's theory and some lyrics match the visuals, for example the lyrics are suppose to represent insanity and the video also accompanies this.
