About the song
I told you 'bout the Seether before
You know, the one that's neither or nor
Well, here's another clue if you please
The Seether's Louise
I told you about the walrus and me, man
You know that we're as close as can be, man
Well, here's another clue for you all
The walrus was Paul
The highly energetic music video for "Volcano Girls" was shot over two days at Essenay in Chicago, Illinois in 1997. This video consists of the band in the central arena attached to bungee cords, on which Post (right side and airborne), Nina Gordon (left side and performing), and other band members bounce erratically. The video also shows Post and Gordon performing the song while a camera circles around them.
Surrounding this arena stand many fans watching them perform several takes of the song.
