Do You Do You Dig Destruction Wikipedia
"Do You Do You Dig Destruction" is the first single released by the Norwegian band Turbonegro from their 2007 album Retox. The single was released in 2007, only available as a mobile download in Norway. This was the first time a Norwegian band has chosen to initially release a single exclusively for mobile phones. "Protect the environment, buy your music digitally," urges Turbonegro. The song was available from Djuice and Telenor in partnership with Universal Music and could be downloaded for free until the end of April.
The single was also released in a promo-only CD version in Norway.
The German shepherd dog visible on the coverart is originally from a drawing made by Adolf Hitler.
A music video was made for the song (produced by Wreck Creative Studios from Stockholm, Sweden), which can be viewed on the band's official MySpace site, here. It was noted by some that the video seems to be inspired by The Hives' video for "Main Offender". In an interview with VG Hank tells that the opening scene of the video clip is inspired by the Kenneth Anger movie Scorpio Rising from 1964, other sequences have their own Turbonegro context: "It is quite typical for the old esthetics of punk. It is about a biker gang in James Dean-looks who are members of our party and want to destroy parts of the infrastructure."
