Manson can be seen naked, or alternatively dressed very feminine and posing like statues of saints and imitating the Virgin Mary. He also has an erotic encounter with an androgynous woman who in the climax of the video abruptly becomes an Aleister Crowley look-alike.
During the tours Rock Is Dead and Guns, Gods, and Government, the ending of "Long hard road out of Hell" was attached to the end of the band's cover of Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). The combination of the two songs can be heard on the band's live album, "The Last Tour on Earth" and on the "Guns, God and Government" DVD, and has officially been titled "Sweet Dreams / Hell Outro".
