The video for “Don’t Speak” shows the band members of No Doubt performing in a studio located in Silverlake. The theme of the video is showing how the media prefers to focus on Gwen Stefani rather than the band as a whole. Live concert footage of No Doubt is also spliced into the video. The video for “Don’t Speak” ended up winning Best Group Video at the 1997 MTV VMA’s.

The quirky video for the song “First Date”, displays the exploits of the members of Blink-182 set in 1974. In an attempt to recreate Dazed and Confused, the band members of Blink-182 roam around the El Segundo streets in a Volkswagen van wearing fake wigs and 70’s clothing. The video closes with a bizarre combination of water-park chaos, go-karting, and angelically walking through a field.

The video for “Dance Dance” follows the simple story of high school students dancing at homecoming while Fall Out Boy plays on a stage. The members of Fall Out Boy are also featured as nerds looking to score with girls at the dance. The ending dance routine in the video with Pete Wentz is a parody from the movie, Revenge of the Nerds.
