BoomBox Behind The Music?

Can you identify this music video about a boombox's rise to and fall from fame?

I saw a music video on MTV's 120 Minutes and I can't remember the name of the band or the song. I probably saw it sometime between 1999-2002.

The video started with a band performing onstage along with a boombox. The crowd liked the boombox more than the band, and the boombox became famous. Eventually the boombox started partying too much, which I think culminated with the boombox falling into a hottub and eletrocuting itself. The boombox recovered and started a comeback tour. At the boombox's first show of the comeback tour, somehow the fire alarm went off, and as all of the people tried to run out they stopped and started dancing to the fire alarm.

The video was not animated or CG, it was an actual boombox in all of the scenes. I don't remember the style of music at all, but I think it possibly was a dance song because I don't remember there being any lyrics.

Best answer: Simple Plan. Here's a ridiculously thorough description of the video.
