Music video[edit]

The music video for "Guilty" was shot in Los Angeles 2004. In the video, The Rasmus are performing in a darkened room, with a photographer taking numerous pictures of different people and the band. There is a problem in the photographs' development, and they turn into representations of the people's anguish, fear and pain.

The band's comments[edit]

The band have said that this song is about how they have neglected their family and friends because of the demanding and time-consuming nature of their job.[1]
