Music video

The music video for "Never Wanted to Dance" was uploaded onto the band's YouTube account at midnight on August 6, 2008. The video primarily involves a party with a Dance Dance Revolution SuperNova machine, with people dancing to the song on the machine. The band members perform within the game itself on one of the wireframe stages, which were introduced by that specific version of the game. In the end, the police come and raid the party, arresting almost everyone.
