It's been 15 years since American Football's seminal self-titled album, and following the Polyvinyl deluxe reissue of one of emo's defining releases last month, the trio have proved that it's never too late for a music video, releasing one for "Never Meant," via NPR Music. The Chris Strong-directed video is full of records, Polaroids and, unsurprisingly, heartbreak, all taking place in the band's home of Urbana, Illinois, circa 1999. Maybe Tumblr has been the one keeping emo alive after all. Watch "Never Meant" below.
