Video Premiere: Never Elected – ‘All My Life’

Washington D.C.’s Never Elected are bringing back some of the best elements of the ’90s, including the long hair. Fusing the socio-political consciousness of Rage Against the Machine, Living Colour’s furious bass-riffs, and the Foo Fighters’ driving guitars, the band is an in-your-face grunge-revival explosion. They’re gearing up for the re-release of their 2023 album Turbulent on April 19 after having freed themselves from label control to once again embark on their musical journey as independents.

Today, they’re premiering the video for their song “All My Life” off the re-released album. The single has already been nominated for local Washington D.C. music award the WAMMIES for Best Hard Rock/Metal Single in addition to their nominations for Best Hard Rock/Metal Band, and Best Hard Rock/Metal Album.

“All My Life begins with a rhyme that the artist’s grandma sang to him regularly, mocking his ugly looks as a toddler,” the band explains about the song. “It is an unfiltered outpouring of frustration directed at all those who have brought adversity into the artist’s life, spanning different periods and across various aspects. It is a brief rant on the hypocrisy and self-serving agendas exhibited by both, close and extended family.”

The song has a steady, fast, punk rock rhythm married to complex metal guitar solos. The video also finds itself in love with the ’90s between the fisheye lenses and the split-screen editing that was so prevalent in rock videos on MTV in that glorious decade. Check out the video below.
