Well, it's a list of videos.
 
2021-04-17 4:39:44 AM  
Yeah, that was underwhelming.

How about realistic, digitally-produced, erotic robots?

Not rock, but the Daft Punk video for Revolution 909 always brings back fond memories and is quite clever.

The only thing about November Rain that broke the mold was learning that the best way to get out of the rain was to jump right through the wedding cake

No, their take on what music videos can be, across their catalog.

I'll also add Green Jello and their attemp at being a "video only" band

Rammstein's video for 'Pussy' is VERY NSFW.
 
2021-04-17 7:47:45 AM  
I will say " The Ghost of You" sold me on MCR. I will say that GNR had some awesome videos. Radiohead's "No Surprises" was pretty memorable too as it was very close to a snuff film.

If you going to open the door for Madonna for "rock music video" then this whole list should have been pretty much every Peter Gabriel video.

I was lucky enough to see them live twice. they are (I guess were) amazing. they also knew their crowd so when I saw them for Hello Nasty they did a few songs from the new album but much more from older albums.

There was a summer (right before mtv stopped showing music completely) where it seemed like "November Rain" would end and Johnny Gill "Rub You The Right Way" would start. Over and over and over.
