Best Music Videos of All Time

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Justin Timberlake - Mirrors
22 Jonny Cash - Hurt

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

Come on, this should be in top ten...
This is one of the saddest video of all time

24 Avenged Sevenfold - Nightmare

This music video is deserves top 5... Who didn't see the video yet, please see the music video... I just surprised when I saw the music video... This is awesome creation of Avenged Sevenfold... Love it

Just crude and straightforward. Definitely deserves a spot on the top ten.

This music video is deserves top 5. The song and the music videos is just awesome. Everyone should check this out.. And yaa this is a great creation of avenged sevenfold... Love avenged sevenfold foREVer...

This video is unique to other music videos. It's hard to explain if you haven't seen it. But instead of cutting to the whole band playing the song. It goes to the singer and guitarists individually as they do their parts of the song. It sounds like a weird random detail but it makes for a really cool effect. And as a whole it's just a really cool video. Also the song it self is truly a masterpiece.

And fun fact it is based on the horror movie "Jacobs ladder" because it was one of the Rev's favourite movies.

25 Lady Gaga - G.U.Y (An ARTPOP Film)

The fact that it has only 70 million views bothers me! GUY is better than any music video including all of the ones which have more than 1 billion views.

Highly underrated. Very thought through, and beautifully shot

26 Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana

Most amazing video ever the power when the guitar solo comes in and it's a MASH PIT, I go to 1 every year and it ain't pretty

This is one of the most influential bands of all time with this iconic video and personally Michael Jackson is mentioned to much in this list

This video still sends chills down my spine like it did when I first saw it 22 years ago.

How is this 25? This video, along with the song, defined the 90s and changed music history!

29 Green Day - Jesus Of Suburbia

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 story

30 Bullet for My Valentine - Tears Don't Fall
31 Lady Gaga - Applause

Best music video in the world.

I live for the applause applause x3!

This video is not the best of gaga but it have a massage for all the fans

You are alosome LADY GAGA

32 Queen - I Want To Break Free

Why is this not number 1?! It is so entertaining and never gets old! It does not rely on women to grab attention (although Roger Taylor appealed to some...) just Queen's crazy but innovative ideas

Very cool and funny clip from one of the most talented teams in the world!
At what the song is often used as an anthem of liberation of several South American countries.

This one really is a pretty great video. The opening section alone, then the Afternoon of the Faun references!

No words... Best video ever!
