The Oxys have revealed the video for Mr. Horrible the first single from the band’s sophomore album, Generation Irrelevant, that is set to be released on July 21st via Dead Beat Records

“It’s about Sid Vicious. Freddie Mercury called Sid Vicious ‘Mr. Ferocious’ because when Sid first met Freddie, Sid asked him if he had succeeded in bringing ballet to the masses. Sid was clearly being a smartass and sassing Freddie. One time when Sylvain Sylvain (New York Dolls) was staying at my house, he told me this story and got the name wrong. Instead of saying ‘Mr. Ferocious’, he was saying ‘Mr. Horrible’. I found it charming and decided to write a song about Sid, and stick with Sylvain’s version of the name.” (guitarist Jason “Ginchy” Kottwitz)
