Chart performance

Live performance

In the concert version of the song small changes are made to the song, such as the guitar riff played by Head in the background is removed during the outro of the song. Also the line "Fucked up feelings again" in the pre-chorus of the song is often left for the audiences to sing instead of Davis while rest of the band members momentarily stop playing their instruments in order to hear the audiences' voices clearer. The song has become a staple of the band's live show to this day. It is often played as their opening number.

Music video

The music video portrays a boy watching subliminal messages on TV while flipping channels between shows (which consist of real-world events) and the band playing in the TV against a static backdrop. In the end, Davis takes the boy into the TV. The video for "Here to Stay" also marks the first video appearance of Davis's unique microphone stand designed by H. R. Giger. There is also a "clean" version of the music video which shows the boy being taken into the TV at the beginning. This version omitted the explicit words and all of the real-event videos. The point of view is "inside" the TV instead of outside it. This version is the one shown at Sony BMG's official YouTube channel.
