Since MTV is Basically Dead

I can't remember the last time MTV played actual music videos, and since I'm extremely bored on my third day of summer break, I'll give you my favorite choices. Not based on the song, but just the video.

Weezer- Buddy Holly
Easily one of my favorite videos of all time. The Happy Days part is cool and seeing the Fonz dance to Weezer is tremendous.

Taking Back Sunday- Cute Without the 'E' (Cut From The Team)
This video is a spoof of the popular movie Fight Club. I must say, well done. Also, John Nolan kind of looks like Edward Norton in this.

The Black Keys- Tighten Up
Like father like son I suppose.

Brand New- Sic Transit Gloria
The beat will get stuck in your head, and it's pretty cool with all the mirror movements.

Beastie Boys- Sabotage
It's pretty badass with the whole undercover cop thing.

Beastie Boys- Fight For Your Right
Could there be any better music video in the 80's? Don't think so. By the way, anyone know what the hell Spanish Fly is?

Gorillaz- Feel Good Inc.
Huge shoutout to the lovely Melissa Maggio for this one. I had completely forgotten how awesome this video was until she brought it up. Cartoon bands are fun.

The Offspring- Pretty Fly (For a White Guy)
The anthem for all white people who think they are hoodrats. Word up.

OK Go- Here It Goes Again
Huge shoutout to Emily McManus for this. OK Go might be the kings of creative music videos. Everyeone needs to also check out the video for This Too Shall Pass. This is the first time treadmills have ever looked fun.

Red Hot Chili Peppers- Californication
Best videogame music video of all time.

Blink-182- First Date
That hair. Those mustaches. Woof.

Armi and Danny- Love You Tender
This is by far, without a doubt the worst music video ever known to man. It's so awful that it's actually funny. Words cannot describe it, you just need to watch it.
