Best Music Videos of All Time
The Top TenXW
It shouldn't take a second for a sane being to tell 'whats the best album/song/music video in history' is MICHAEL JACKSON'S THRILLER babe...
A true master piece... The best of all time... and Mj was only a young guy when he did this... just shows the genius he was... - love4mjj
Absolutely the best and a trail-blazer. Michael can compete with himself only. His other videos should be on the list as No. 2, No. 3, etc. There are throngs of performers still copying "Bad", "Black or White", etc. - whateverhappens
This is the video that revolutionized the entire music industry!V60 Comments
This song is amazing, and it will never be forgotten because of its melody, its wonderful video and the great job that Morten, Mags and Paul have made in it. A-HA forever!
Magnificent idea and excellent execution! I can't listen to the song without thinking of the video! best music video ever!
One of the best songs of 80s and 2nd best music video right behind thriller
Love the animationV20 Comments
Check out the Radio Edit version and the 2008 version on youtube, BETTER than the oringinal version - SmoothCriminal
The scene where the guy sneaks up behind him with a knife and then gets blown away through the wall was really a funny scene
If we are going by truth, most of Michael's music videos should be on here..V15 Comments
The best song, from the best band, sung by the best singer, in the best video. Truly the best - lukestheman4
Best Of The Best Music & Music Video... - RaminLp
This is the best song I have ever heard and seen
Linkin Park RULES!
This band is absolute garbage, why is it everywhere on these lists?V7 Comments
Any human being with a brain knows that Bad Romance was not only one of the best music videos of 2009, it was one of the best music videos of the decade. I mean the choreography, the set, the costumes, and even the song. Come on, the song was one of the best song I've heard in my life. If you're a Little Monster, you know Bad Romance was the best thing you've layed your eyes on. It was nominated so many times at the 2010 VMA's and win a lot of those nominations. Vote this up people, Gaga killed with this video.
This is probably Lady Gaga's best work. She was able to make a clean eye catching simple video with all her crazy corky ideas. It's pure genius, everybody who worked with her must have had the best chemistry ever because the result is astonishing. All of her videos always have a good idea behind it, but sometimes it doesn't take the best direction & either looks like too much at once, sort of like a mess. But Bad Romance is just perfect, I wouldn't change anything about it & could watch it all day long. Also, it's her most iconic, it really defines her as an artist & includes most of what people recognize in her.
Very good idea to video, such as video simply extraordinary and unique. With this video and no one ever beats for this high-quality video anywhere else. Poor Roman - the best thing that could ever make Lady Gaga! Lady Gaga worthy 2nd place (after Michael Jackson)..
Best of all timeV64 Comments
The storyline is great, full of emotion, the video is one of the most expensive music video of all time. You watch it and I'm sure that you will not regret it. - ronluna
Perfect blended emotions and music together... Everything is so great in GN'R... Slash and axl are the best... come on people... Find a way for it... It must be in the top ten..
Okay, one question... why is lady Gaga above guns n roses?! Axl is 10 times the musician she is, without a doubt in my mind. November rain is a beautiful song, and the video may be the only thing that even comes close to it! I love the part where slash leaves the church to play his solo.
Perfect song as well as videoV11 Comments
Michael was great in this music video. He was the pioneer for the short film music videos. This was an amazing video and the dancing was the best... It was an early video ; but one of the best... xo MJ love xo - love4mjj
Michael Jackson's music videos were and still are the best to watch because their like mini movies. Rest In Paradise MJ The King of Pop
Oh ya this was a great video... for sure of all time... beside Thriller... love it... - love4mjj
Of course beat it should make this it should be in top 5 for dancingV3 Comments
It's an amazing video that expresses the true meaning of the song. The song is about a guy who died in the hospital, and death came to him in the form of his fondest memory, which was a parade. His best memory was watching a parade with his dad when he was a kid, so dead approached him in the form of a parade. The message is that death should be happy, and it should come in the form of your favorite memory, not sad and depressing as it usually seems to be. The video and song have a very deep meaning in the form of a beautiful little story. It's inspiring and great!
everybody c'mon this music video is just so powerful and epic and the story is superb! if you have never seen it you gotta cause you're gonna lose your breath watching it!
Best video with great lyrics! Your memory will carry on My Chemical Romance!
It's a masterpiece. A beautiful beautiful song and videoV5 Comments
Amy lee is enough for being best... - Belder
This is a very good video, when I first saw the video I downloaded it. laugh out loud..
Laugh out loud, best music video ever. Very action and ultimate EPIC
I don't care what everyone else says this video deserves number one.V1 Comment
For those who just think of One as an awesome metal track, watching the video alongside it shows the true meaning of this very moving song.
HA, It's funny how Thriller actually can be on the same list as One, One rules the most supreme, and the video scared me, so suspense
Do you know the impact Thriller was? It basically started the whole music video and telling a story theme. It's legendary. If anything, no doubt most of Michael's music videos should be consecutively at the top.
That was really awesome with the scenes of Johnny got his gun movie - Ramtin_MHV6 Comments
Beautiful, artistic, and deeply meaningful, the video perfectly emulates the tone and message of the song. Enhanced by Melanie Martinez's enthralling style and captivating sets, the video is truly a testament to the artistic genius of Melanie.
I absolutely love the story it tells! If you have time, then watch Crybaby or Carousel. She is fire.
So funny and amazing. It's their best song. Billie, Tré and Mike really rock this
TOO MANY people on here that don't appreciate REAL beauty and genius.
Anyhow, if you can somehow get through your extremely biased views (I'm talking to you Michael Jackson worshipers, among others), this is clearly the best video. It shows the emotion of the song. The music video is (Supposed to be, at least) a form of art. You can play this video non stop in an art museum. It has no flaws. It's absolutely perfect.
The raw pain and emotion in his voice and expressions alone make this worthy of the top 5. To be able to still make music after going through the death of your true love is just astounding. Johnny Cash will always be a huge influence on all genres of music and will never be forgotten.
Not the best cash song but I agree that out of the few videos he did this is the best
I like Johnny Cash's songsV9 Comments
such a good music video the best they have ever done plus JOS is my all time fave song - idolangelx13
Amazing, it's not on the top for one reason, the rest of the voters haven't seen this...
Jesus of Suburbia is the only music video up here that has meaning. Thriller and Smooth Criminal are okay, but its just some silly senario.
This song tells such an amazing storyV4 Comments
Yep, this should be way higher than JLo, Shakira, Selena Gomez, and all those other wannabes. Telephone was not just a music video, but a short film. She really outdid herself, and she was a genius for making this part 2 of Paparazzi. Which also should have been up higher on this list.
Two pop legends. Slaying the world. Crazy, creative, and highly influential.
This video was absolutely amazing and fabulousV3 Comments
The best song of off Linkin Parks worst album but its not anywhere near the best song to me but this one of the all time greatest music videos to me
Best music video, thriller is overrated in my opinion.
One of my all time favourites, Linkin Park does heaps of songs, all just as good as the rest!V2 Comments
Young Madonna in bed wearing an iron slave collar... What more can you want?
Express yourself to get what you want.. To be who you want to be.. And to have that motivation, this song can be a tool to do that... The power of positivity is what the song preaches... So go ahead express it..
This music video was years ahead of its time; it spoke of women rights and standing up for what you believe in. It made a difference.
A truly iconic video for so many reasons.
But I'm only a crack,... in this castle of Glass!V1 Comment
Best real life song ever and great music videoV2 Comments
Now I don't mean to say that this should be at 1st position but this should surely be under top 10 because its really very good. Please watch it if you haven't and I'm sure that you'll love it
Michael JACKSON HAS SUCH AWESOME MUSIC VIDEOS. THIS ONE IS NOT MY FAVORITE THRILLER IS BUT IT IS QUITE UNDERRATED. WATCH IT IF YOU HAVEN'TV1 Comment
