This is the version of Outside that does not feature Fred Durst providing “backup.”
I prefer the version without Durst but, in all fairness, they’re both good. The version that Aaron Lewis performed during the Family Values tour was still a work in progress and Durst wasn’t lying when he said that he was feeling those lighters. The version that Staind later released as a single is the final version of the song. It’s the way the song was meant to be heard.
The music video was directed by Nigel Dick. If you’re a successful musician, Nigel Dick is eventually going to direct a video for you. That’s just the way it works.
