The music video for "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us" premiered online on 23 January 2012, at a total length of three minutes and three seconds.[3] Directed by Thom Lessner and animated by Ted Passon, the video features a longer cut of the song, which features a news introduction in the starting scene. The video features a girl, who is shown as being a big fan of The Darkness, in her room listening to a radio broadcast, which states that all happiness has gone from the world, and that it has become boring. The video then becomes animated as the song begins. The four band members are shown in various scenes, including driving motorbikes down the Lowestoft promenade, past the beach huts, and through a city during the night.
