After the band's first foray into video land with "Scream" two years ago, Spider Rockets has now released a video for "Going Down."

The song lyrics play off the sexual and hostile interpretations suggested by the track's title, often walking a very fine line between the two. Singer Helena Cos comments: "I wanted the listeners to make up their own minds which way I'm leaning when I'm singing, 'When you come here you're going down."

The video weaves around vintage black and white footage to add a bit of levity into what is otherwise far from a funny song. This idea was inspired by videos from other legendary rock bands like Ratt's "You're in Love," Iron Maiden's "Run to the Hills," and Metallica's "One."

"We were also on a budget and knew we'd have to fill some frames," admits guitarist John Nap, "and it's amazing how much they were asking us to pay for some other common rights 'free' footage that never made the video, like clips of Betty Boop and Popeye!"
