This is the sorta video that just immediately grabs you and you’re not exactly sure why, but then you look in closer detail and see that there’s a really good story behind it, too (not to mention a wonderfully catchy song).

From NPR Music’s Bob Boilen:

The Apache Relay’s “Katie Queen of Tennessee” is easily one of the catchiest tunes I’ve heard this year. And in the song’s new video, a troupe of 40 young dancers raise the fun to heights I hadn’t imagined with a blissfully, perfectly choreographed routine.

Then I discovered this:

I encourage you to head over to read the rest if you dig the video at all. Makes the whole thing tie together in a very fun way, especially if you also dig hair metal.
