Manuk, Psychonaut : This video was shot *10* years ago. Welcome to being old.

Jackson Allen : Call it outdated or corny all you want kids, but this was a really cool music video for its time. YouTube was nowhere near the size it was today, and to see such a famous band put the popular memes of that time into the mainstream were amazing. Think of it like the inside jokes that you and your middle school friends had getting their own fucking MUSIC VIDEO. That’s how it felt. What an era.

Meelow Avila : Damn this video is a time capsule

ZekeDaBengal : Memes? No kids, back then, they were called "Viral Videos"

Maurice R. : reminder that this won a grammy for best music video back in 2009

Angelo Santos : Back before demonetization and ad revenue this was youtube

trainmaster 250 : When someone voices their opinion about politics, environment, etc. 2:25

Blake Hutto : This song helped me alot when I was trying to fit in back in middle school, I realized that I shouldn't try to to be just okay, and like everyone else who will eventually fall in line with the others who are ok with the mediocrity of just being "ehh". This song helped me realize that I should "do the things that I want to do because I ain't got a thing to prove to you."

Ben Jones : Pork and Beans is better than Buddy Holly, Is there anyone else who agrees?
