best song ever music video

Oh hi, '90s Gwyneth Paltrow—who is playing a lovelorn stalker?

Silverstone plays a teenager who breaks up with her boyfriend (played by Stephen Dorff) when she catches him cheating. We knew every line. Director John Landis and Michael Jackson modeled the video off of An American Werewolf in London. It connected fans to the group, with scenes of Los Angeles tied in with lead singer Anthony Kiedis and the band performing the song. It's something that can be watched on repeat solely because of how amazing the Oscar winner is. Psy relentlessly mocks himself and the "Gangnam" image while dancing around to a super catchy beat.

Jeremy is the only character who moves, everyone else remains still, bringing us closer to him as the most human character of the bunch. The queen of boundary pushing in her prime—directed by the then little-known David Fincher.

It's hard to explain to people just how groundbreaking this song and video was. It did take home the coveted Breakthrough Video, along with a Best Direction in a Video nod for Scott. "Bad Blood" was nominated for eight VMAs in 2015 and took home Video of the Year. The White Stripes had a number of visually incredible videos, this one fuses the song and video concept perfectly.

Remember when Kayne interrupted Taylor Swift accepting the MTV Video of the Year award and said “Imma let you finish and I'm sorry, but Beyoncé had one of the best videos of all time”? After some feuding, the wall gets literally and figuratively broken down and the groups earn each other's respect through performance and wind up playing together. Fun fact: The friend posing the “but what has he done for you laaattteeelllyyy” question is, yes, a young Paula Abdul, who also choreographed the routine. Kurt Cobain's melodic, intense screeching found a home in this video, it meshed perfectly. This was the breakup anthem of the early ’00s. All right. A controversial video that prompted boycotts and was protested by the Vatican due to "blasphemous use of Christian imagery," it truly was the perfect [autotag]Madonna[/autotag] video. Directed by Tarsem Singh (yeah, the guy who did The Cell and The Fall directed this video), this video won Video of the Year at the 1991 VMAs.   This video truly fit the entire style of Smashing Pumpkins' third album, Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness. This video cost less than $50,000 to produce and will live on forever. Powered by Minute Media © 2020 All Rights Reserved. This perfectly executed video took OK Go's one-take performances to another level.

Jonze's magnum opus involves a run-of-the-mill Fatboy Slim song and a 57-year-old [autotag]Christopher Walken[/autotag] dancing and flying around a hotel. Michael didn't want to appear on camera, something unheard of at the time. This was the first video of Aerosmith's trilogy featuring Alicia Silverstone and became an enormous hit. And who ushered in the ’00s-approved futuristic fashion? A phenomenal video that accompanies one of Van Halen's most underrated songs (from the band's best overall album), it definitely connects. The man sacrificed for his art and created one of the greatest videos of all-time. Check. So he put a ton of attractive models in a video instead of himself, and it wound up in heavy rotation. Master ’80s fashion photographer Herb Ritts shot a singer and a supermodel rolling around in the waves, and it was goooood. This wacky cast of characters (and Tenacious D cameos) solidified Dave Grohl & Co. as just the coolest. That said, it was the first year of the awards, so the voters clearly didn't know what they were looking for. It took a month and a half to build the machine and the video was filmed over two days, with a total of 47 takes. If you claim you didn't watch this video repeatedly in 2013, you're lying. Mark Romanek has directed videos for the biggest artists in the world, and they didn't get bigger than Michael Jackson and Janet Jackson in 1995. Then they met Gus Van Sant, and their lives changed. There's some real depth to it, which is why it rocketed up the charts even without the video and was nominated for three Grammys. In 1992, no band on the planet was bigger than Guns N' Roses, and that's why they got a $1 million budget for the best video they ever made. It's easy to forget but in the late 80s, Michael Jackson and George Michael were locked in a battle to be the world's top pop star. While it hasn't aged incredibly well, it's still a great video and was groundbreaking at the time. As I've always said, if you're a Norwegian synthpop band and you're going to be a one-hit wonder, do it with a great video. What can we say? Leave it to the Compton-born rapper to bring out the humility in all of us (while posing as Jesus at the Last Supper, no less).

One of several Spike Jonze-directed videos on this list, Fatboy Slim's "Praise You" has a great concept and flawless execution. In honor of the 60th annual Grammy Awards this Sunday, here are 30 of our go-to jams. From the wedding scenes with Rose's then-girlfriend Stephanie Seymour, to the performance shots, to Slash wailing away in front of a church in New Mexico, everything about this video is expansive. But mostly, this video set the tone for the next decade.

It was the third time Meyers has had a video win the award. Cash was battling serious health problems and his frailty was laid bare for all to see, but set against video of him as a younger man. Create one here. Alright, enough explanation.

No one in this video, not even Lamar himself, is "humble" but that draws our attention even closer to the lyrics to figure out just what he's talking about. Sign up for PureWow to get more daily discoveries sent straight to your inbox.
