So since me and my friends are making a crappy music video over the next month I figured we would talk about the dying trend of video accompaniment to music.

What are your favorites?
What are your least favorites?
Why are music videos dying?
Who should we blame, and how shall we punish them.


(My favorites on the top of my head.)
Slyde, Sex and Drugs - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K8YphOPYXgk&noredirect=1

Prodigy, Smack (NFSW) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0BpfydZdTE0

Daft Punk, Prime Time (For the wtf factor) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QwRlt1XyOg0

Deadmoose, Ghosts and stuff (For the "They gave no fucks") - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h7ArUgxtlJs

And the entire movie of "Heavy Metal" because it was basically a 2 hour music video.

How about you fellers.

MGMT "Congratulations"

This is one of my favorite videos as of late. Absolutely beautiful.

Also, can the entire world please agree to never use the phrase "no homo" ever again? #Phrases I hope die with 2012

Megathread... onwards!

I think videos are a dying art because so few people bothered to do something interesting with them in the first place. So many tired cliches that no one put any thought into. I hope this thread reveals some diamonds in the rough.

I like ones that tell a little story. Eg

Chemical brothers - believe
