Notes: Queensryche released Video: Mindcrime on Sept. 26, 1989. The VHS contained the videos shot for Operation: Mindcrime, including, after the credits, how Sister Mary ultimately met her demise. (It blinks on the screen during an alternate video take for “I Don't Believe in Love.”)

After the success of the “Eyes of a Stranger” video, the band was told by EMI it could either release one more video and have a promotional campaign for it, or shoot a series of videos connecting the Operation: Mindcrime story and release it as a standalone home video. The band chose the latter. It was released on VHS, and also on Laser disc in Japan. Video: Mindcrime was finally put on DVD in 2013, as a part of the 25th Anniversary deluxe box set edition of Operation: Mindcrime.
