Music video[edit]

The music video, directed by Andy Morahan,[1] starts with the band driving down the street in a red 1997 Hummer H1 when they get caught in a traffic jam. They then pull into a back alley, get out of the car, and begin to play the song on the street. The song that the band was listening to before the car jam was "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n' Roll)", a song released when the late Bon Scott was a member of the band.
