View Full Version : Best Music Videos of All Time
Feb 16th, 2003, 04:14 AM
I wasn't sure if this was Music Discussion or Television. But I figure "Music" is the first word, so here it is.
Best music videos ever. List, maybe put a little info. Don't say a video is good just because you like a song. And if anyone says that a video that is just a film from a concert, they will be getting a stab wound.
Oh, and I'll just say it now before one of you homos mentions it: Thriller. There, now it's been said. PICK SOMETHING ELSE. >:

I will find out what that guys says at the end. Even if it kills me >:

Feb 16th, 2003, 01:13 PM
Sentenced to Burn - Cannibal Corpse
Feb 16th, 2003, 01:39 PM
Aha- "Take On Me"
Best video EVER.
Feb 16th, 2003, 01:50 PM
Though that video does kick ass, you cannot deny Prodigy's "Smack My Bitch Up."
Best video EVER #2.
Feb 16th, 2003, 02:11 PM
I saw this music video a long time ago and it had some guy walking through a car tunnel and he kept getting hit by cars. He'd get up again, then get hit again. Anyone remember that one? I can't remember who the artist was... It was a kickass video. I think it was a brit band.
Feb 16th, 2003, 02:34 PM
McClain, the song was "Rabbit In Your Headlights". It was by a band called UNKLE and Thom Yorke did the vocals.
Feb 16th, 2003, 03:21 PM
Van Halen - "Hot For Teacher"
Feb 16th, 2003, 05:34 PM
'One' by Metallica is a very good video.
Feb 16th, 2003, 06:36 PM
Judas Priest - "You gotta another thing coming"
I don't know who did it, but that FISH-HEAD video was all right.
Feb 16th, 2003, 07:33 PM
District by Sick of it All
Feb 16th, 2003, 07:39 PM
Wasn't there a video for TV Party? I can't seem to remember...
"I was so wasted" I'm talking to Black Flag if I'm sounding to esoteric.
Feb 16th, 2003, 08:00 PM
Weapon Of Choice! COMON, CHRISTOPHER WALKEN!
Feb 17th, 2003, 03:48 AM
Yes, Ronji. Thanks... I kept wanting to say Radiohead, but I knew the band hadn't put out that song. I forgot about UNKLE. I'm gonna' have to do some downloading.
Feb 17th, 2003, 04:21 AM
I'll second Helm with "One" but i also liked "Freak On a Leash" by KoRn
Feb 17th, 2003, 07:27 AM
anything by Twisted Sister!!!
Other faves would be "Just Rock and Roll" by Midtown - featuring a Bar-mitzvah and a stripper. And "All my best Friends are Metalheads" by Less Than Jake... simply because there's this bit where two guys get on stage and do this russion crab-dance move thing which I actually mastered and accomplish everytime I hear the damn song in a nightclub:
Feb 17th, 2003, 12:48 PM
Praise You by Fat Boy Silm and Spike Jonze is really cool as well.
SHIT... ALL TIME GREATEST VIDEO... SABOTAGE by the Beastie Boys!
Feb 17th, 2003, 01:23 PM
Eminem does that move too, Blackjack.
Feb 17th, 2003, 05:07 PM
So? That's not gonna stop me embrassasing myself in front of hardened punks at nightclubs doing that dance. :(
Feb 17th, 2003, 05:15 PM
Blackjack, that move is done with no hands behind the back. And it's left foot out/right foot in, then right foot in/left foot out x2 and finishing with both feet out and arms outstretched at the end of the four meters. It's very, very difficult. I took it as a challenge as a kid to learn to do it. When I get to the UK, I'll instruct you to the ways of geekness.
Feb 17th, 2003, 05:38 PM
The Christopher Walken video.
Feb 17th, 2003, 11:18 PM
anything by tool. especialy parobol/parobola
Feb 18th, 2003, 02:22 AM
aphex twin - come to daddy
oh yeah and Mr. Oizo - flat beat
Feb 18th, 2003, 03:02 AM
Blackjack, that move is done with no hands behind the back.
They're two different moves. The one you're talking about is the Cossack dance, and it's fucking hard as fuck to fucking do.
Feb 18th, 2003, 09:11 AM
Ghostface Killah - Daytona 500
:love SPEED RACER :love
Feb 18th, 2003, 03:09 PM
yeah, I think Helm was describing the Cossack dance, which is just wrong. But would be fun to see!
I try to do the move they do in the Less Than Jake Video >:
Feb 18th, 2003, 03:35 PM
Soundgarden-Black hole sun, thats really all I can think of right now since they don't actually play videos on t.v anymore.
Feb 19th, 2003, 01:10 AM
Korn's Blind. Good song, excellent video.
Although I do think they ripped off Sick of it All's Scratch the Surface video.
Feb 19th, 2003, 01:46 AM
Sober by Tool. Awesomely fucked-up claymation!
Feb 19th, 2003, 04:53 AM
Go the fuck away, ye of little taste. 5 dickshits standing around playing their instruments is NOT a good music video. Go back to watching MTV, you little retard.
Feb 19th, 2003, 11:10 AM
Ha, I saw that one coming. :/
Feb 19th, 2003, 11:29 AM
out of all the radiohead videos mentioned, the one that blew my mind was "No Surprises." That video is sheer genius. Nearly wrote a undergrad paper on it.
Old Ozzy videos from Bark at the Moon to the one with Lita Ford used to crack me up, but they're far from the greatest.
Feb 19th, 2003, 12:09 PM
Beck's Sexx Laws is an excellent music video.
Feb 19th, 2003, 01:14 PM
Yes, nothing says "greatest music video" like a bunch of costume homos dryhumping. :rolleyes
Almost everything my Rammstein and Tool goes on the list. Their videos are pure gold.
Feb 19th, 2003, 01:31 PM
I cant believe that i only heard these videos once each, they are my all time top 3 favorite.
1. Tool - Sober
2. Beastie Boys - Sabotage
3. Soundgarden - Black Hole Sun
Feb 19th, 2003, 05:05 PM
Sabotage and Black Hole Sun are definitely great too. I concur with your list wholeheartedly.
Feb 19th, 2003, 05:58 PM
One these days, I'll have to go through my tapes. I used to record music videos (mostly metal stuff) and various random funny stuff. A nice jog of the memory could help me think of some more videos.
Feb 19th, 2003, 08:05 PM
Beck's "Devil's Haircut" video was pretty good.
Feb 20th, 2003, 12:51 AM
Refused - New Noise.
This film clip is so fucking good. And has been copied by shittier bands. :(
Feb 20th, 2003, 05:51 AM
Feb 20th, 2003, 12:25 PM
Pantera- Cemetery Gates
Feb 20th, 2003, 02:00 PM
I almost forgot Atari Teenage Riot's "Revolution Action" video.
Feb 20th, 2003, 04:33 PM
"Thriller" by Michael Jackson is #1
Feb 20th, 2003, 04:49 PM
Feb 21st, 2003, 12:01 PM
Yeah, I was describing the Cossak dance. I've never seen the video by Less than Jake so I suppose I should have checked before going fountain of wisdom, but nevertheless, it's a kewl dance.
Feb 23rd, 2003, 03:40 PM

Feb 24th, 2003, 01:39 PM
"Yankee Rose" by David Lee Roth. The opening at the convenience store alone makes it one of the funniest ever.
And "Fishheads" is by Barnes and Barnes, by the way.
Feb 25th, 2003, 02:04 AM
I agree with Cemetery Gates, but you forgot This Love.
Anything by GWAR. You'd almost swear you were watching a TROMA movie.
And wasn't there a Radiohead video where Thom Yorke is riding in a shopping cart? Creep, I believe.
Of all time? "Epic" by Faith No More. Whatever happened to the fish?
Mar 3rd, 2003, 07:31 AM
linkin park- point of authority
Mar 3rd, 2003, 07:45 AM
Either it´s Bjorks 'All is full of love' done by Chris Cunningham or Massive attacks 'Unfinished
The 'All is full of love' video is marvelous, so sterile but yet so full of life :rolleyes
And Massive attacks video is good because it is so 'simple', just one take and no fucking wankers that dance around naked like todays shitty music videos, god I hate them, makes me want to squish a bug or something.
And to all you guys that fancy MTV and such, piss off...please just piss off, you suck so much it hurts.
I hate you all...
Mar 6th, 2003, 06:48 AM
the video the misfits made when theyre causing chaos in a burning hospital
Mar 11th, 2003, 08:20 PM
That's "Scream," and they're zombies.
Mar 12th, 2003, 11:55 PM
"Subteranean Homesick Blues" Bob Dylan
"I Wanna Be Sedated" The Ramones
"Jurassic Park" Weird Al
May 1st, 2003, 08:49 PM
Pink Floyd's "The Wall" in its entirity.
Tenacious D - Tribute.
Any Tool vid after Hush.
May 4th, 2003, 06:49 PM
Wreck, I agree. Shitty band, shitty song, fucking awesome video.
Murderous robots=video gold.
May 5th, 2003, 05:10 PM
Sabatoge is a definte great one.
Black Hole Sun is also good, I also liked The Day I tried to Live
And whether you like or hate that song, "Take On Me" was ahead of it's time.
As for Claymation, Sober is great, i also like AIC's "I Stay Away"
May 5th, 2003, 09:41 PM
Who makes the video where all of the skateboarders get hurt? I can't understand what the guy is saying, but everytime I see the video I laugh. The one at the end is the best, where his arm is twisted around and is all floppy looking, it still makes me shiver.
May 5th, 2003, 10:51 PM
The alchoholik by superjoint ritual, was made for like 5$ in phil anselmo's basement. cheesy as all hell but still sweet.
May 6th, 2003, 01:29 AM
Coldplay - Trouble (not the UK version)
Cake - Short Skirt, Long Jacket
Blink 182 - First Date (yeah yeah, sell outs blah blah blah, but the video is funny as hell)
May 6th, 2003, 07:34 AM
Links 2-3-4 by Rammstein.
that was just sweet, seeing a bunch of CG ants rock to Rammstein and then eat a bunch of beetles. plus, the human hand covered in ants at the end just kicked ass.
and also, "Fat" by Weird Al kicks major ass too.
May 6th, 2003, 09:19 AM
Yeah, Sabotage was great even if Professor Cool misspelled it.
May 6th, 2003, 11:32 PM
I don't care for the music, but "Fell In Love With A Girl" by The White Stripes was a cool video.
That's the one made completely out of Legos.
May 7th, 2003, 12:47 AM
I saw the new Foo Fighters video (Times Like These, or some shit) and one of them, I think the rhythm guitarist, is wearing a Clash shirt. I like it just for that, but it's a good song too. :(
Also, the video for London Calling is very cool.
May 10th, 2003, 06:11 AM
APhex Twin: COme to Daddy and Windowlicker
Weezer: Island in the Sun (or whatever sue me)
Beastie Boys: Sabotage
