Watch Bob Dylan's violent new music video 'Duquesne Whistle'

Enigmatic music legend Bob Dylan has debuted the music video for his jaunty, upbeat new song "Duquesne Whistle," one of 10 tracks off of his upcoming album Tempest -- and it's a bruiser.

Directed by Australian stuntman and filmmaker Nash Edgerton (his actor brother Joel appears), the video's dark tone belies the chipper tone of the song itself. It begins as a light-hearted ode to young love, but quickly turns into a dark caper that involves cops, kidnapping and a baseball bat to the knees -- Spin went so far as to call it "Tarantino-ish."

For his part in the video, Dylan struts around town as the head of a street gang that includes a guy dressed like Gene Simmons from Kiss. Rock on.
