"My Own Summer (Shove It)" is a song by American alternative metal band Deftones, released in 1997 by Maverick Records as the first single from their second album Around The Fur. It was Deftones' first charting single, reaching number 29 in the UK Singles Chart. The song also features backing vocals from bassist Chi Cheng, in the chorus. The song has been described as a defining track of the nu metal and alternative metal genres. The video for "My Own Summer (Shove It)", directed by Dean Karr, begins with a clip of a cage falling into the sea, and blood seeping out of it into the surrounding waters. It then moves to footage of the band playing on a set of floating anti-shark cages. Eventually, a shark appears and is seen to be eating a piece of meat, presumably the contents of the cage. The shots of the band are intercut with clips of Chino Moreno singing the lyrics inside of a diving helmet. At the end of the video, Moreno falls into the water and the video fades out. The video was shot at Pyramid Lake, in Northern Los Angeles County, with additional footage of the sharks coming from the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. An interview with Moreno that takes place during the filming of the video was included on the DVD release of B-Sides & Rarities. In 2012, Loudwire ranked the song number seven on their list of the 10 greatest Deftones songs, and in 2020, Kerrang ranked the song number one on their list of the 20 greatest Deftones songs. In 2023, Rolling Stone ranked the song number eighty on their list on the 100 greatest heavy metal songs. A version of the song was featured on the soundtrack of The Matrix. In 2023, the song was featured in episode 4 of The Idol.
