Linkin Park's 'Good Goodbye' Video Is 'Mortal Kombat' With Basketball

Linkin Park selected the warehouse level for their new "Good Goobye" video, then got straight into playing basketball as if it was a '90s fighting game full of fatalities. Pusha T and English grimeboy Stormzy show up for guest verses, a noted hip-hop turn from the first two One More Light songs we've heard, the pop-threaded "Battle Symphony" and "Heavy."

So come for the concept, stay for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar appearance, the exploding heads and the bodies being vaporized into skeletal dust. The victor winds up being a little girl straight out of a horror movie remake.

As with the "Heavy" video, "Good Goodbye" prominently features a Mercedes-Benz, the company they worked with on a GT3 race car.

This week Linkin Park announced their One More Light Tour with Machine Gun Kelly, running from July 27 through Oct. 22 in North America. Even grander, though, is the news they'll play stadium shows with Blink-182 and the Wu-Tang Clan. One More Light, the "Numb" band's seventh album, drops May 19 after a three-year wait.
