Music video[edit]

The music video for "My Way" is a departure from the perceived serious tone of the song itself, which according to Fred Durst was done because "bands tend to take themselves way too seriously". Also, as the video does not follow any specific theme, and was basically done however the band wanted without restriction, it does follow the theme of the song in that sense.

At the beginning of the video, Durst and Wes Borland are conversing on what should be done for the video, as the two have no ideas, and Durst suggest they check 'wardrobe' for ideas. The video then follows the groups various antics as they attempt to film the video in a variety of settings, including:

The video also shows scenes of the band members trying on various costumes, notably a two-piece horse costume, among others.

At the end of the motorcycle scene, the band gets up and leaves Durst by himself, looking angry. At the end of orchestra scene, the band just walks away. The last scene in the video shows the end of the caveman scene, where Durst takes a big boulder and throws it at Borland.
