“Run” is accompanied by a music video directed by Grohl, who seems out to prove he can master pretty much anything he wants in a clip that takes place in an institution for the aged and pays homage to One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest with the band portraying gray-haired head bangers who set off a violent insurgency among their fellow patients.
