With that aside, I came across several cool videos that I wanted to share. Most of them I have seen before, but some of them are new to me. These aren’t necessarily songs that I will throw on my iPod, but videos that I’m posting for the visual artistry.
1) I’m not a fan of dubstep, but my stepson showed me this video a few days ago and it’s a definite example of exceptions to the rule: Skrillex – First Of The Year
2) Streetlight Manifesto – Would You Be Impressed?
3) I love the grainy look of this one. It really lends to the overall atmosphere of the sentiment: UNKLE – Eye For An Eye*hang in there until about the 3:16 mark to get the real payout of this video*
4) Here’s another cool one by UNKLE – Rabbit In Your Headlight *Again, this video hits it’s head after the 3 minute mark*
5) Legos? Seems you can do anything with those things: The White Stripes – Fell In Love With A Girl
6) I guess I have a sweet spot for animation in music videos: Eatliz – Hey
7) Disturbingly gentle: Kylie Minogue & Nick Cave – Where The Wild Roses Grow
8) Slipknot – Wait and Bleed
9) **you definitely want the kids out of the room for this one** DyE – Fantasy
10) Tool – Stinkfist (This is only 1 of many very cool & artistic videos from them)
11) Mixed animation is some of the coolest shit ever: Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill
12) Anti-Flag – One Trillion Dollars
13) A Classic to close it out. I always thought of this as one of the most inventive videos of it’s time: Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers – Don’t Come Around Here No More
