Sebuah video muzik telah diarahkan oleh Marc Webb dan difilemkan di Los Angeles, California pada Jun 6, 2009. Ia diperdanakan di MySpace pada hari Isnin, Jun 22, 2009 di waktu tengah malam EDT.[4][5][6] Sebuah versi lebih pendek juga wujud, yang dimuatkan pada terbitan radio lagu.

Ia dalah video Green Day ketiga yang mencirikan pemain gitar backup lawatan/studio Jason White berhibur dengan pancaragam, berikutnya "Wake Me Up When September Ends", dan "Working Class Hero". Dia juga dilihat secara ringkas dalam video muzik untuk "Jesus of Suburbia" tetapi dia tidak bermain dengan pancaragam.

Selepas menggunakan masa pada minggu terdahulunya di nombor 3, video ini memuncak ke nombor satu di VH1 Top 20 Countdown pada Ogos 22, 2009 dan sekali lagi pada September 19, 2009. Ia juga memenangi "Best Rock Video", "Best Direction in a Video" dan "Best Cinematography in a Video" untuk 2009 MTV Video Music Awards.

Mengambil tempat dengan pancaragam dan dua ahli protagonists Christian (Josh Boswell) dan Gloria (Lisa Stelly) in a white room. The police or army arrive outside the room and open fire through the window. As bullets rain through the room, the band continues playing. Gloria picks up the phone and throws it into a fish tank. As the bullets continue to fly and tear apart the room, Christian and Gloria walk toward each other, unharmed by the bullets. They embrace and kiss, recreating the 21st Century Breakdown cover art. The video may represent the meaning of the song in the 21st Century Breakdown story.

At one point during the video, the words written on the walls of the motel room are revealed for a moment to be the lyrics to Green Day’s song “See The Light”, the last song on 21st Century Breakdown.
