Rapace, who also starred in the Swedish version of “Girl With the Dragon Tattoo,” plays out several roles in step with the tune’s lyrics.
The Stones are one of the few bands to address today’s headlines in a song. “Doom and Gloom” touches on everything from war and financial collapse to environmental concerns, such as the controversial practice of “fracking”
Rapace’s scenes, mostly in color, are interspersed with black-and-white scenes of band-members playing the heavily rhythm and blues inflected song. It’s classic Stones with a pounding beat and driving guitars. It’s probably one of the best Stones’ tunes since “Sympathy for the Devil.”
Throughout the video, directed by Jonas Åkerlund, the Swedish actress flashes her breasts amid exploding artillery shells, garbage dumps, a seamy apartment and Rapace sleeping under the Stone’s signature lips logo in neon. She’s also film in jail and as a racy flight attendant. She even fights off zombies.
“Doom and Gloom” is one of the new tracks on The Rolling Stones greatest hits collection, GRRR!, which is out now. It marks the return of the original band members, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood to the studio for the first time in seven years.
