"Way to Go!" is the second single by Rogue Traders from their second album Here Come the Drums, released in 2005. It was released as the third single in the United Kingdom in May mainly as a download release. It is the first release under the famous "Rogue Traders" logo. In the UK, the single had a different cover. The reason is that since the band had a new drummer, they couldn't use the original cover in the UK release.

Music video[edit]

The Australian video clip was filmed in Sydney, Australia and took a day to shoot. The clip is set in a university lecture, which transforms into a rock concert. The actual filming location was a decayed ballroom in a derelict building adjacent to Sydney's Central Railway Station. The clip stars the band's lead singer, Natalie Bassingthwaighte as the teacher, band member James Ash as the headmaster and a number of "students" who make up the audience for the band's performance (these were mainly fans who had responded to media calls for volunteer participants).

UK music video[edit]

A different video was shot for the UK release, which uses the Metro Radio Mix version of the song. The video premiered on The Box (UK music Channel) at 18:00 - 20:00. The first half of the video features the band performing on a street, and the second half features the band performing in front of a bright set of lights on a rooftop. The video was shot on Cockatoo Island near Sydney.[1]
