The Top Ten

A Beautiful Lie - 30 Seconds to Mars
Mars makes the most powerful videos ever, what I like about they're videos is that they alway convey a certain massage. They definitely deserve the number one (and two) spot.
a great video, a great message. AWESOME {MARS IS COMING}


2The Power of Good-Bye - Madonna
It's so sad but it tells a great story. Queen of pop!

3Hurt - Christina Aguilera

4Breaking the Habit - Linkin Park

5Beautiful Liar - Beyoncé & Shakira

6The Kill - 30 Seconds to Mars
Beautiful song with an amazingly put together storyline, and is incredibly thoughtful with how it's placed. Truly an amazing tribute to the original storyline.

7Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

8Bad Romance - Lady GaGa

9The One That Got Away - Katy Perry

10Because of You - Kelly Clarkson
Got a good value on this music video... Growing up w/ a mom that really so weak & can't stand on her own... She grew almost like her mom, realizing that in the end she does blame her mom for everything...
I love this from Kelly Clarkson

The Contenders

11Bad Girl - Madonna
All of Madonna's music videos are unique in their own way, and Bad Girl is not Madonna's best song or music video. But the concept and execution and direction of the plot is applaudable.
I thought it was soundtrack - looks like a real movie. Brilliant Video!


Incredible! Maybe with Substitute For Love, check this video

12Oh Father - Madonna

13Tears Don't Fall - Bullet for My Valentine

14The Unforgiven - Metallica
Awesong music video although I never really understood what it meant


15Pagan Poetry - Björk

16So Far Away - Avenged Sevenfold
R.I. P The Rev

17Youth of the Nation - P.O.D.

18November Rain - Guns N' Roses
Axl rose in a wedding ceremony with his wife, band, orchestra and other known pals, they enjoyed the wedding and the honeymoon and it just goes november rain having his spouse died and being buried. a nightmare


Such a sad storyline, but very powerful. My dad always watched it and he told me he wanted this for his funeral. Now I understand it may be from the dramatic effect of the music video. It's purely beautiful.
Slash can't find the ring hahaha... but seriously, it has a great story.


[Newest]Why you no number 1?!?!


19She Will Be Loved - Maroon 5
Good but weird story line..

20Sober - P!nk
