Watch the official music video for “Breaking The Chains” by Dokken.
The song appears on the band’s debut album of the same name and was released as a single in 1983 through Elektra Records, being the band’s first American single. The song peaked at #32 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, and stayed on the chart for 13 weeks.
The video begins cutting between the band performing the song in a house and performing on a black stage. The band is later chained up in a dungeon before George Lynch breaks free and performs the song’s solo. As Lynch performs the solo the other band members break free one by one. After the solo, Don Dokken wakes up chained to a bed, alone, before breaking free. The video ends with shots of the band performing in the house, in the dungeon, and against a backdrop of chains that explode as the video ends.
