|Deftones singles chronology|
"You've Seen the Butcher" is a song by the American alternative metal band Deftones. It was the fourth single released from their sixth studio album, Diamond Eyes (2010). The song is unique among modern rock singles for its use of an unusual time signature.
The music video for "You've Seen the Butcher" was directed by Jodeb Films. It shows the band playing in a worn-out library, which appears to be floating in the air, while library books rain down from the sky. Attractive young women, including Canadian model/actress Madaline Zanni, form a crowd around the band as they play, getting more aggressive with the band and grabbing them. One even rips Chino Moreno's shirt. When the song reaches the bridge, blood starts pouring from the ceiling of the library, spraying both the band and the women. The end of the video depicts a bloody, drenched Deftones.
