The music video for Sugar Kane was directed by Nick Egan. The video is shot in New York City and portrays Sonic Youth performing in the midst of a fashion show showcasing "grunge" clothing. The clothing, in fact, is one of the collections done by Marc Jacobs, "Grunge Collection", for Perry Ellis in 1992. Marc is also a close friend to Kim Gordon and the band. The video also marks the first film appearance of Chloë Sevigny. The title may be connected to the Marilyn Monroe character 'Sugar' Kane Kowalczyk in Some Like It Hot.
