The music video features Mark Metcalf, who starred in the first Twisted Sister video, "We're Not Gonna Take It
." Once again, he is seen yelling at a kid in an extended scene before the song starts, with the kid giving the same retort - "I wanna rock!" (which Dee Snider came up with) - to Metcalf's question, "What do you want to do with your life."
Metcalf played Neidermeyer in the movie Animal House
, and he reprised his role here, basically recreating a famous scene where he yells at a hapless student named Flounder. The actor who played Flounder, Stephen Furst, also played his character, showing up at the end of the video to blast Neidermeyer with seltzer.
