The above punk rock video by L.A. band It’s Casual is well on its way toward becoming a viral hit.

The song and video vent anger at conditions on Los Angeles' freeways and depict the benefits of finding other ways to travel. Lead singer Eddie Solis screams his rage while shots of congested traffic and a physically divided city assault the senses. Finally, Solis shouts "THE RED LINE" over and over again while rocking out in a subway car.

The best part is that Solis is legitimately car free, or "unlicensed" as the band’s myspace page says. In addition to a "hard plastic seat," Solis also travels around on his trusty skateboard.
