    Default Greatest Music Videos Of All Time thread

    inspired by ivankays thread...

    What are some of the greatest music videos of all time in your opinion (youtube/etc. links encouraged!)
    Even if the song is meh or shit, but happens to have an awesome video....

    Not to flood with videos, I'll just post one random one at the top of my head...

    Michael Jackson-Smooth Criminal

    MJ has several videos that could be put here, but this video is sort of epic.
    It prolly is the only good thing that came from his MOONWALKER movie.
    The choreography and dancing is just amazing. The song is ok, but the video is what makes the song excel. It's one of those videos you can watch over and over.

    i really loved the "smack my bitch up" video. even though it took me years to see it.

    the aha "take on me" video was dope.

    and if we're doing michael jackson, i just don't see how thriller can be topped. i used to watch it like it was a scary movie as a kid.

    i didn't watch many music vidoes though, except in high school. mainly because MTV makes me want to stab my eyes out.

    What the.... are those ALL impersonators? Some of them look exactly like the real person. In fact, almost all of them sound exactly the same as the person they are impersonating. To be honest, I was only thrown off when Kurt Cobain came into the video.

    Yeah, they're all impersonators. Infinite lulz @ Tom Jones.

    Any video that shows the band playing fails. Why not just watch concert footage? Even though they do show the band playing during the bridge, the Freak on a Leash video is really good.

    man, Weezer, the Chemical Brothers and Radiohead have so many consistently Great Videos. As popular as it is, "Pork and Beans" is ridiculously Great. i wonder how future generations will appreciate it. They definitely will have access to the references, but will they "love" it:

    I wouldn't say this is the greatest, but I find it humorous for sure.
