The 100 Greatest Music Videos of All Time


1 comment

Obviously these sorts of lists are designed to spur debate, but as much as I love the Man in Black, I don't consider "Hurt" the "greatest video of all time." Do you?---

Brit rock mag New Music Express (NME) put together the list for the launch of its new video Website, and you can find the whole list here.  If you're not into surfing, the Top 10 goes like this: 1) Johnny Cash, "Hurt" 2) Radiohead, "Just" 3) Chris Isaak, "Wicked Game" 4) Soundgarden, "Black Hole Sun" 5) Bjork, "All Is Full of Love" 6) Foo Fighers, "Everlong" 7) Weezer, "Buddy Holly" 8) Beastie Boys, "Sabotage" 9) Sigur Ros, ”Virar Vel Til Loftárása” 10) The Prodigy, "Smack My Bitch Up"

On the plus side, unlike so many of these rock-mag lists, the batch of 100 videos leans more on modern fare than golden oldies. Although, I don't think I want to live in a world that considers any blink-182 video better than Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean."

There are way too many videos I love to pick one, but for my money, the best on the list comes in at No. 69:

So, what gets your vote for the "greatest video of all time?"
