Storyline

In the music video for this song, the musicians tried on themselves various images of all the epochs of rock music. According to Flea, in the video, the band "shows exactly the era, not the concrete people: rockabilly, British invasion, psychedelic music, funk, glam, punk, gothic rock, glam metal, grunge and themselves, which are a mix of all these directions" . You can see allusions to Elvis Presley, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Prince, The Misfits, Parliament-Funkadelic, David Bowie (in the image of Ziggy Stardust), Sex Pistols, Twisted Sister, Mötley Crüe and Nirvana.
