Music video[edit]

The main protagonist of the music video is a British mine worker who fights alongside his fellow mine workers against the police during a strike, ultimately getting arrested. The band is shown playing in the midst of the battle between the miners and the police. At the end of the video, the miner is shown eating breakfast with his young son and wife (presumably on the morning before the battle). Most of the video was shot in black and white; however, the end of the video was shot in colour.
