"Breakeven" is a song by Irish band The Script, taken from their eponymous debut album.

Music video[edit]

The music video premiered on BBC Radio 1's website on 29 September 2008.[1] It was recorded at the Great South Wall in Dublin. Before recording began, Dublin radio station FM104 had a competition for a listener to appear in the music video. The music video shows clips of the band's home city of Dublin, Ireland and the band performing. The video almost created minor controversy when Danny O'Donoghue's ex-girlfriend was supposed to be cast as an extra but this was avoided when the producers chose a different girl.[2] The band performed "Breakeven" on an episode of The Paul O'Grady Show which aired on 30 October 2008. On 14 October 2009, they performed "Breakeven" on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in the United States.[3] The video was number 2 on the 2010 VH1's Top 40 Videos of the Year.
