Our Take: In this 1996 hit, Jason Ross wails -- with all the unrestrained suffering that killed grunge -- about being witness to a murder and the fear that kept him from reporting it. Spliced between scenes of distraught rockers wandering through woods and soloing in the snow, these demonic puppets beat each other up and probably symbolize cowardice, violence, shame and groaning. They look pretty tough up against each other, but we want to pit them against the little guy from Tool's 'Sober' video.
