A music video for the song was shot in mid December, 2006, in Los Angeles, California with director Marc Webb who has done the Motivation Proclamation and Festival Song videos for the band before. It features Good Charlotte performing alongside the concrete L.A. river bank that runs through the city, contrasted with classic images of the beauty and history of Los Angeles. The video clip shows the two sides of L.A., the excitement and glamor of L.A. that the band witnessed early on in their career and then the deeper/darker hidden side of L.A. that people and the band saw after living there for years.
