Eskimo Joe singles chronology

"Black Fingernails, Red Wine" is the first single by Australian alternative rock band Eskimo Joe, taken from their third studio album of the same name. It has been their most successful single to date: their first song to chart in the top ten of the ARIA Singles Chart (peaking at #6); spent 19 weeks in the top 20, and won Single of the Year at the ARIA Music Awards of 2006. It also made #2 on the Triple J Hottest 100, 2006. The single was released as the band's debut single in the United States in August 2007.

Two music videos were made for this song:

  1. Showed the band members in a car, kidnapping people in the middle of the night. At the end of the video, the kidnapped people were revealed to be Eskimo Joe themselves. When Kavyen Temperley was a guest on The Glass House, he offered that this symbolised that Eskimo Joe had changed, and the kidnapped band were the old Eskimo Joe.
  2. A simple performance video, showing the band playing in an old building.

Due to the criminal theme of the first video, it received an MA15+ classification in Australia, restricting it to night-time airplay. The second promo clip was made to enable the song to be played by daytime music shows.
