Stone Temple Pilots

The group "Live" has consistently had some visually captivating videos:

Turn My Head (beautiful)

Lightning Crashes (poignant)

Dolphins Cry (powerful)

Freaks (creepy)

Lakini's Juice* (powerful and creepy)
*Link is probably not safe for work unless they're very open-minded!

Run Away (cool)

Living Colour is one of the more underrated bands ever.
their videos took place in the now defunkt CBGBS, dealt w/bisexuality and the ones by kevin kerslake were especially stunning visually.

This song is always stuck in my head and I can't do the screeching part so it makes it better.

i love those,


ok I want to share these for story telling power in as few words as possible.

the first one leaves you feeling dirty at the end. coil tainted love

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eo3TU...eature=related

the second is just powerful if you actually pay attention to it. if you just glance at it it seems funny and pointless "rabbit in your headless"

Great stuff. Peter Garret (Midnight Oil singer) is now in the Australian legislature. He was already an attorney.

Love the Oils stuff. Just looked up "Forgotten Years" and "The Dead Heart" videos, too. Great stuff.


Who needs MTV when they are all on Youtube, anyway?

Yeah I know. One thing to preach/sing about making change. He actually is trying to do it, not just when it is fashionable like many. Obviously you can tell how I'd rather sit and have a pint with between Peter Garret and Bono.

I love the old U2 videos and U2 songs... anything from Joshua Tree back...BOY, OCTOBER, WAR, UNDER A BLOOD RED SKY, UNFORGETTABLE FIRE, WIDE AWAKE IN AMERICA, JOSHUA TREE. The live recordings are outstanding, especially the videos from Red Rocks..."Sunday Bloody Sunday," "40," ... Live Aid's "BAD"

Speaking of Live Aid...Queen's performance was outstanding.

Another favorite 80's video, Simple Minds Don't You Forget About Me
Dire Straits I want My MTV

The greatest video ever is The Replacement's B@stards of Young.

This is how you make a video when your label wants you to make one, but you don't want to make one.


And who doesn't love the mid-90's Spike Jonze videos. Wax's Southern California is awesome.

Yeah, but you don't want her plunging her spike heel into your eye as a result of a hormonal rampage.
