Today on Music Video Monday, Girlfriend by Matthew Sweet! Remember this one? Released in 1991, the song was the first release from the album of the same name. By now, the hair band music I loved was pretty much dead, MTV had pretty much been taken over by hip-hop, and Nirvana and Pearl Jam were leading the rise of grunge with Nevermind and Ten. This song was a bit of a surprise to me and what cemented it as a favorite was the use of the anime film Space Adventure Cobra. I had read parts of the manga before and it was very cool to see parts of it in this video, directed by Roman Coppola, son of legendary director, Francis Ford Coppola. If you’ve never seen it, check it out! If you have seen it, enjoy it again!
