Twenty One Pilots Stylist: “Heathens” Video Inspired by Johnny Cash

Image Group LA/ABCIn between scenes from Suicide Squad, Twenty One Pilots' "Heathens" video stars Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun playing the song in a prison. As it turns out, the Columbus, Ohio duo wanted to pay tribute to perhaps the most famous prison concert of all.

"We were trying to give a very subtle nod to Johnny Cash's Folsom Prison performance,"  Amanda Valentine, the stylist for Twenty One Pilots, tells Billboard. "You can barely just make out the bolo tie."

Between the hoods, masks and body paint, Twenty One Pilots obviously have a very distinct style, which Valentine describes as "defiant," "unpretentious" and "fresh."

"I think the way they start their shows is pretty punk -- matching suits and face masks," she says. "It feels like something Devo would do. That’s probably a good way to think: What would Devo do?"

The band's style has attracted a lot of eyeballs, too: "Heathens" is one of this year's 10 most-viewed music videos on YouTube.
