Music video[edit]

The music video for the single features the band playing on a stage in front of a live audience. It features many jokes, ranging from "Typical Video Girls" to the band playing the song with animated oversized heads. The video also features a cameo by the three members of the Transplants (Travis Barker of blink-182 and +44, Tim Armstrong of Rancid & Rob Aston) and Brody Dalle of The Distillers. It was the final video played on MuchUSA. The guitar riff after the 2nd chorus where everyone freezes and the guitarist moves very fast is a parody of System of a Down's Toxicity video.
