The song is used in the film Constantine and the music video uses imagery from the film: Angela Dodson (Rachel Weisz's character) entering hell with band (shot with thermal cameras) playing in hell. James Iha and Jeordie White did not appear in the video (since they both joined the band after filming); instead with previous bassist Paz Lenchantin and guitarist Danny Lohner joining Maynard James Keenan, Billy Howerdel and Josh Freese in the band lineup for the video.
