"Getting Away with Murder" is the first single from Papa Roach's third album, "Getting Away with Murder" (2004), and sixth released single in total. The video is performance based; showing the band playing in a Stock Exchange Hall with references filled with fans. It was directed by Motion Theory.

Description of the Video

*There are references to "WarGames", Tic-Tac-Toe, and Global Thermonuclear War calculations on the display screens in the background. Occasionally messages flash up during the video. "In God we trust" appears as a message, and then alternates between that and "In guns we trust" as well as "In oil we trust". "Murder accomplished" is the last one to appear. It alternates between "Murder" and "Mission" accomplished. The characters in the big screen in the background also change shape periodically to resemble the U.S. flag. Fighter jets, tic-tac-toe boards, and multiple copies of the skull and crossbones materialize on the big screen, as well as maps of the world and flying dots representing missiles. There are also Trading Places references too.Other messages appearing on the display screens in the background include WMD(weapons of mass destruction), MRDR(murder), 'BSH' and 'CHNY'
*The badges worn by the Stock exchange employees say '4OIL' and 'NRON'.
*In the last two shots, the entire band can be seen with their hands and face covered in blood and Shaddix drops his microphone suddenly as if just realizing he has done something wrong.
