The music video was pretty controversial when it first aired. MTV banned the full video and only showed an edited version. The music video features a man killing his girlfriend (because if he can't have her, then no one will) and then being confronted by the police. The song plays well with the video and it is pretty ballsy for the time. The video might be pretty tame for today's audience, but it still packs a decent punch. Though I would have preferred more interaction with the couple or a greater backstory, the music video still succeeds in establishing a man's harrowing and isolated feeling as he tries to understand what he has done.
Motley Crue belongs with a handful of 80's artists who consistently produced quality music videos. This is one of their better ones.
