Music video[edit]

Directed by Dean Karr, the band is a group of modern cowboys standing on what appears to be a desert in the Texas/Mexico Border region. Something is seen falling from the sky and Scott Weiland (suited as Clint Eastwood in the film A Fistful of Dollars) holds up a telescope, in which they see a female angel called "Libertad" (Spanish for 'freedom') played by Fernanda Romero. After crashing to Earth, she is kidnapped by the people of a Mexican village, who seem hostile. Various members of the band lip sync the lyrics of the song as if they were the dialogue of the "film". The band tries to track her down on various vehicles equipped with radios, distributed in the following way: Weiland and Duff McKagan in a car, Matt Sorum on a motorcycle and Slash with Dave Kushner in a van. They arrive at the village and have a big fight that involves explosions, molotov cocktails and gun shooting. After the fight is over, the band finds Libertad and releases her.
