The music video for "Dirty Boots" was directed by Tamra Davis. The video features a boy and girl who meet and fall in love at a Sonic Youth concert. At the climax, both the boy and girl get onstage and kiss passionately while the band continues to play; both the boy and girl are then escorted by bouncers into the audience via stage dive. The video was shot in a now-defunct New York City club called Beowulf. The girl was played by Lisa Stansbury of Neptune, New Jersey. The band selected her for the video after seeing her dance at a Dinosaur Jr. show at Maxwell's in Hoboken.
