The music video was directed by Jake Scott from the 19th to 21 June 1995 in Los Angeles. Scott used a special "fish eye" lens to film some of the scenes, to give that distorted view as if looking through a peep hole. Another music video was made for the Healy and Amos mashup remix, which was directed by Jason Scott and released in 1998.
"Comedown" became one of the band's most popular songs reaching number one on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart and number two on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart in late 1995. The song also gave Bush their first American top 40 hit, reaching number 30 on the Billboard Hot 100 on November 4, 1995.
"Comedown" was essentially the band's breakthrough hit and paved the way for Sixteen Stone to sell over 6,000,000 copies in America, and for "Glycerine" to become a massive hit.
