Music Video

The music video features the band performing on a rooftop in an old fashioned black and white city while explosions reign throughout. Large red robots are moving throughout firing purple laser beams at the buildings. During the songs lead break The Datsuns fire lightning out of their guitars at the robots, destroying them.At the end of the video the smoke from the city clears and two pressure meters decrease. It switches to a view of the band looking downwards at a small robot toy before stamping on it.
