The band shot a live video for this song with director Nigel Dick on October 10, 1989 at a the Hollywood club the Cathouse, a favorite haunt of Axl Rose, who wears a Cathouse T-shirt in the "Paradise City
" video. Axl introduced it by saying, "We're making this for ourselves. If we made a nice video for MTV, we could put it out and sell my records and s--t, but instead we're going to spend 150 grand just to make something we want to see."
The video didn't appear until 2018, when it was put on Apple Music and later included on their Appetite for Destruction: Locked N' Loaded
