The video features the band's performance of the song in Metallica HQ in San Rafael, California, the studios where 'Lulu' was recorded.

Teaming up with Wayne Isham yet again, the music video for Metallica's 'Broken, Beat and Scarred' debuted on March 26, 2009. The video was filmed over the course of two live shows that took place in California in December 2008.
Perhaps one of the strangest music videos to come out of Metallica's camp is the video for 'All Nightmare Long,' the fifth single from 'Death Magnetic.' Directed by Roboshobo, also known as Robert Schober, the video made its worldwide premiere on Dec. 7, 2008.
'The Day That Never Comes,' the first single from Metallica's 'Death Magnetic,' made its music video debut on Sept. 1, 2008. Directed by Thomas Vinterberg, the video was filmed outside of Los Angeles in the desert and follows the story of a Marine who has a near-death experience that affects his decisions made in a future event.
The final single from 2003's 'St. Anger' is also the namesake of the 2004 Metallica tell-all documentary, 'Some Kind of Monster.' The music video for 'Some Kind of Monster' takes footage from the film as well as older concert material and sets it to the tune of the song.
'The Unnamed Feeling' is the third single released from 2003's 'St. Anger' and the second Metallica music video directed by The Malloys, the team of brothers Emmett and Brendan. The video was filmed in Los Angeles and made its debut on Dec. 3, 2003.
Once again teaming up with director Wayne Isham, Metallica premiered the music video for 'St. Anger's' second single, 'Frantic,' on Aug. 15, 2003. Like the song, the video moves fast and definitely conveys a sense of franticness.
The music video for 'St. Anger,' the lead single from the album of the same name, found Metallica stepping out of their comfort zones. Teaming up with directors Emmett and Brendan Malloy, the band decided to film their performance of the crushing song at San Quentin State Prison in California.
Another Metallica music video directed by Wayne Isham, 'I Disappear' premiered on May 4, 2000. The song was recorded specifically for the soundtrack for the movie, 'Mission: Impossible II.' Isham and the band recorded the music video in Monument Valley, Arizona.
Released on Nov. 8, 1999, the music video for 'No Leaf Clover' follows Metallica's performance of the song in Berkeley, Calif., during the recording of their live two-disc album 'S&M.'
