(CNN) -

No Doubt is apologizing to American Indians for their new music video for "Looking Hot."

The video shows the rockers in traditional American Indian clothing and being chased by cowboys.

The band pulled the music video after getting complaints. In a statement posted on their official website, the band apologized and said that they never intended to "offend, hurt, or trivialize Native American people. ... Being hurtful is simply not who we are."

"Looking Hot" is the second single from the band's latest album, "Push and Shove."
