"Hats Off to the Bull" is the second single[1] from Chevelle's sixth studio album, Hats Off to the Bull. The song also appears on the band's greatest hits album, Stray Arrows: A Collection of Favorites.

Music video[edit]

A music video was released for the song via the band's Vevo and YouTube accounts on April 18, 2012[4] and was directed by P.R. Brown, who also directed the video for previous single "Face to the Floor".[5]

The video begins with the band members waking up on the street, bloodied and bruised, before they are attacked by an unseen force. The unseen force is revealed to be a kid, playing with toy figures of the band, much like a voodoo doll. The video ends with the kid stepping on the toys, killing the band members and zooms in to reveal he is holding a toy figurine of a bull.
