Black Hole Sun has a surreal and apocalyptic theme and features post-production work by 525 Post Production and Soho 601 Effects. The video follows a suburban neighborhood and its inhabitants, which are eventually swallowed up by a black hole, while the band performs the song somewhere in an open field.

Critics’ Takes:

“No matter how apocalyptic the imagery gets, the band members themselves play their instruments off in the distance, seemingly indifferent to the weirdness that surrounds them.” – Rolling Stone
