The music video to this song was directed by David Mallet, and was set at the Bray Studios in Windsor, Berkshire. Lots of fans gathered to be a part of this video, and can be seen front of the stage, and also seen behind the bars which surrounds the stage the band plays on. Also, in the video, lead guitarist Angus Young is seen playing his Gibson SG on a wrecking ball, which destroys a building. Angus Young had stated in the documentary that he had a fear of heights when doing this before. The video can be seen on the DVD version of No Bull (which also includes the documentary on how the video was made) and the Backtracks box set.
