No topic on this so I'm here to ask Giantbomb community what do you think is the best music video of all time regardless of the quality of the song or whatever the video is all that is important here.
To start off I'll add three that I love:
 

  The Strokes - Hard to explain. Love this video and its especially weird considering its just a mash up of loads of different old video but for some reason it just works really really well.
 
 
  Aphex Twin - Windowlicker. Bizarre and funny just watch all ten insane minutes.
 
 
  Chemical Brothers - Believe Crazy, creepy and just really well done.
 
Thats all from me, I'm sure someone can come up with better ones than this but these just happened to be on my mind.

"I'm Glad" by my wife Jennifer Lopez. I'd post it, but I don't want you guys getting all hot and heavy looking at my woman.

@BigBoss1911: I love that song, but I have never seen the music video for it before; WTF!?

#26 Edited by FunExplosions (5535 posts) -

Wow. I'm astonished by how many of these are actually good. Forgot the GB community is so smart. I got one, I think.
 

Oh, wow. How did I forget this one.
 
  Awesome/hilariously mixed evangelical congregation footage.

If ZZ Top videos weren't banned from youtube I would post Burger Man. It's a song, about a man, who is a burger AWESOME.

#37 Edited by PenguinDust (12729 posts) -

A lot of the good ones have already been mentioned (Sabotage, Weapon of Fate, Take on Me, The Safety Dance) so I am going to list a couple that might have been forgotten. 

  1. Peter Gabriel - Sledgehammer
  2. Herbie Hancock - Rock it
  3. New Order - True Faith (one of my personal favorites)
  4. Weezer - Keep Fishin' (I know people say "Buddy Holly" but I like this song better and it stars the Muppets which is an A+ in my book)
  5. Jamiroquai - Virtual Insanity
  6. Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers - Don't Come Around Here No More
  7. Tool - Sober  
  8. Benny Goodman & his Orchestra - All the Cats Join In (Disney animation)

This is my current favourite. EDIT: I realise the subs for the text aren't appearing when it's embedded, which make it a bit more amusing, though I still like it without the context anyway.

@Osaladin: You win. That really is the best music video ever made, it truly defined what that generation was about.

You're all wrong. 
  

  Just make sure whatever audio output you're utilizing has some bass to it.
