And miss out on the Foo Fighters? I feel as though the world would be diminished without videos for “Big Me”, “Learn to Fly”, and especially “Everlong”.

Same for Anton Corbijn… pretty much all of DMs videos with him are gorgeous.

I was in college when MTV first appeared on the air. We had the dorm room TV tuned to it 24/7.

And then we graduated, and I’m not sure that I’ve watched a dozen music videos since.

AFAIK they stopped making them back then and I just haven’t noticed.

It was a good video. And while too many of them are absolute shit, there are still some amazing works of art out there.

I have been jamming to this since it came out. Video is amazing. Though Possibly NSFW with cartoon animal pasties.

Actually - wait - nearly all their videos are fantastic. Remember with music videos were a chance to make some art? Caravan Place remembers. If if they aren’t your musical taste, the videos are interesting and fun.

One of the greatest season finales in history.

Especially when the show was unexpectedly renewed for another season.
