The 1980's never looked or sounded this good.

ST. LOUIS (KNOU)-- If you enjoyed Beyoncé's Lemonade video, then get ready because 'The Lonely Island' just released a 30-minute-long music video entitled 'The Unauthorized Bash Brother's Experience.' Its sickening beat and ingenius profane lyrics are compiled to tell a "visual poem" of two young basbell players, Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire, from Oakland in the 1980's.

The real Jose Canseco and Mark McGwire were legendary players for the Oakland A's who led the team to a the World Series victory in 1989. Although they were accused of being on steriods and eventually became somewhat disgraced in the public eye, 'The Lonely Island' members remember them as their childhood heroes as they grew up in the Bay Area.

Not only does the video utilize a grainy lense to embody the same stylistic film choices created in the 1980's, but it also includes hits featuring big named artists such as SIA, Maya Rudolph, Hannah Simone, Jenny Slate, Jim O’Heir and Sterling K Brown. 

The full length video is packed full of hilarious material and can be streamed through Netflix and you can jam out to the album via all music platforms including Spotify and Apple music.
