The video is a sequel to music video for the Beastie Boys' 1987 single "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)". Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, and Elijah Wood portray Mike D, MCA, and Ad-Rock respectively as they continue the party throughout town.

A 30-minute long version written and directed by MCA and entitled Fight for Your Right Revisited was released the following day to commemorate the 25th anniversary of "(You Gotta) Fight for Your Right (To Party!)".
