  • Jack Black stars in the video with Dave Grohl. The pair play rednecks who meet up in a motel room, at first doing manly things, but then messing about in women's clothes and having a night of debauchery.

    Black had previously appeared in the Foo Fighters video for "Learn to Fly" along with his Tenacious D partner Kyle Gass; both clips were directed by ex-Lemonhead Jesse Peretz. Grohl appeared in the Tenacious D video for "Tribute" in 2001.
  • This is one of what Dave Grohl considers the "four good songs" on the One by One album, which was a tedious one to record. The other three are "All My Life," "Times Like These" and "Tired Of You."

  • Ben from Ocean City, NjGreat song, I thought the video was pretty funny! I love Grohl's sense of humor, he has a great sense of humility and a taste for comedy in his videos.
  • Xander from Malmoe, Swedenthis is by all-time my favourite song by Foo Fighters.. and the video is truly "masterful" in it's simplicity and satire to what can and can't be done in a video.. I don't think it was banned though cuz I saw it on MTV and we sure don't got the same channel as in the states... I think this song stands out from their other work..
  • Kitten from Scunthorpe, EnglandThis video kicks ass, it's not my favourite Foo song but it's my fave video
  • James from Auckland, New ZealandWhen Jack Black was over here filming King Kong he did a radio interview and they asked what was up with this video. He said that they were having fun with the idea of the secret lives of Southern American Rednecks and how on the public front they appear to be homophobic but in reality they have these weird fetishes. Think of the Marine Core father in the movie 'American Beauty' and thats kinda what there getting at. He also said there was a small crew of about 5 in the room used to make the video.
  • Matt from Millbrae, CaThis video was banned by MTV.
  • Rob from Castaic, Cawhat the hell is with that video???
  • Richard from Hillsboro, TnAt shows the song really pushes the band and makes them tired,it's mostly at the end of the setlist.
