Quad Cities trio Chrash premieres a video today with the tune that wrapped up its latest album of songs about things frontman Chris Bernat’s friends say: the catchy, chugging, uptempo “Didn’t We Have History Together?”

“It was picked for its ambiguous title,” Bernat says. “‘Didn’t we have history together,’ it asks, as if to say, ‘Haven’t we had some great times?’ Or, it could mean, ‘Did we not have a history class together?’”

Bernat also notes: “The unintelligible lyrical matter in the second verse is intentional … I had to get that in there.” The video, which explicitly calls out the indecipherable lyrics, is set at a karaoke night at Rozz-Tox in Rock Island, where Bernat sings to a largely disinterested crowd that includes Cartouche Records label head Bob Harrington and Pat Stolley from the Multiple Cat.
