Music video[edit]

Two music videos were made for the song and both were aired on MTV2's Headbangers Ball.

At the beginning Vocalist/Guitarist Gabriel Garcia hangs in a lamp from the ceiling. That picture later became the cover for their E.P Road Warrior.
  • A second video was also made and is a compilation of live scenes from Ozzfest 2007 and backstage footage. It was directed by Jason Bergh
