Cage The Elephant Release 'Take It Or Leave It' Video

(Radio.com) Complete with horizontal static synonymous with old VHS tapes, Cage The Elephant's new video for "Take It Or Leave It" looks and feels as though it were captured in the late '70s. Making an inexplicable cameo before the roller dancing begins (yes, there's roller dancing) is none other than Juliette Lewis.

"I came up with the idea after seeing American Hustle," singer Matthew Shultz told Radio.com of the video's inspiration. "I just really liked the aesthetic, that kind of '70s disco, macho kind of thing. The video's kinda like Saturday Night Fever meets Skatetown USA, Patrick Swayze's first movie."

As Shultz explained, "We're like the backing band to this roller skating disco competition and the skaters that we got were amazing. Everything looked really authentic. It was awesome."

When asked if he'd taken a spin around the roller rink, Shultz laughed and admitted he's terrified of small-wheeled vehicles. This means skateboards, roller skates and the like are strictly off limits for the singer.

The Bowling Green, KY is scheduled to skate through a series of dates starting on April 12 at Coachella.
