Music video

The footage for the music video, shot in grainy quality, shows the band playing in a dark, and apparently abandoned slaughterhouse. Dexter Holland, for most of the video, sings to a shining lightbulb, presumably representative of the soul of the lost person. He is the only band member to interact with this bulb, though other lightbulbs are shown in each band member's respective rooms. Dexter also sings into a suspended microphone which is also used in the video; it swings back and forth as the video fades to black. It was produced by Dave Jerden.

DVD appearances

The music video appears on the Complete Music Video Collection DVD, released in 2005. The DVD also contains a storyboard version of the video (with the storyboard playing over top the music video).

Rock Band

The song was made available as downloadable content in the Rock Band series on October 7, 2008. It appeared in the first Offspring pack along with "Pretty Fly (for a White Guy)" and "Self Esteem".
