In celebration of FEARnet‘s hit sitcom “Holliston”‘s Season 2 finale last night, the music video for Lance Rockett (played by TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider on the show) and his VAN HALEN tribute band DYVER DOWN‘s first original song “Love It Down Your Throat” is now available online. Chock full of genre cameos, the video was shown only partially during last night’s Season 2 finale episode (Episode 2.10, “Farm Festival”). However, the version available online is the full, uncut video.
“Love It Down Your Throat” was written by Adam Green (“Hatchet”, “Frozen”), Bear McCreary (“The Walking Dead”), and Brendan McCreary (“Young Beautiful In A Hurry”) and features a glitterific, over-the-top performance by Dee Snider. The music video was directed by Dee‘s son, Cody Blue Snider. The song is now available for purchase on iTunes for only 99 cents.
Says series creator Adam Green: “Ever since Lance Rockett was first introduced on ‘Holliston’, it has been inevitable that at some point we would have a musical performance from the overtly sexual, cross-dressing, and ’80s-metal-loving character. With Mass Cable Network on the verge of being shut down this season, Lance has been focused on a more realistic career of writing ‘original VAN HALEN covers’ and Adam and Joe agree to show his music video before unveiling their short film ‘Shinpads’ (‘When they score…you die.’) at their self-produced film festival in the Season 2 finale.”
In last week’s episode (Episode 2.9, “Kevin’s Wedding”), Laura dropped it on Joe that she had been accepted to an art school in Germany, Corri had a meltdown over her confusing relationship with Adam, Oderus tried to move out of Adam‘s closet, and Mass Cable Network was on the verge of being shut down for good. After last night’s Season 2 finale (which featured musical performances from not only Snider but also Corri English), nothing will ever be the same for the characters of “Holliston”.
“Holliston” airs on FEARnet Tuesday nights at 7 p.m. PST, 10 p.m. EST and then hits FEARnet On-Demand the following day. Every Thursday, FEARnet offers that week’s episode for free on FEARnet.com for one week. The full second season (including the hour-long Christmas special) will be available on iTunes and Amazon later this month.
