    Ermm....

    Visage - Fade To Grey (this actually is not my fave version of the video, I want the one where it shows him entering the club. And also the silver body snake painting bit bores me. But the bits where he's singing the verses and the makeup changes totally earns it its place here. Plus he's legendary AND I see him in clubs sometimes ><)

    David Bowie - Boys Keep Swinging (Contains my 3 fave things ever- young Bowie doing dancing, man with tiny hips and waist, and drag)

    Soft Cell - Tainted Love (The campest man on film dressed as Caesar, having tea with a Victorian, putting a girl's hand in a piranha tank and then casually having a little swing in the corner. There's literally nothing to dislike)

    Talking Heads - (Nothing But) Flowers (Tried to avoid the obv Once In A Lifetime, although that is also so so worthy of a spot. Linking to the myspace version because the youtube doesn't have the facts)

    Instant Hit - The Slits (I love the mad yelling at the start, the abysmal quality, the really nice (imo) clothes they're all wearing, the shots of old London, how happy and young they all are, and how simple it is)

    I know I went on a bit, but I love music videos. Stay up til 3ish most nights just watching and rewatching.

    From what I remember of my "teenie bopper daze", the videos for Points Of Authority and Hell Song (both bands respectively) were so much better IMO.

    lol. I thought of mentioning some old school LP videos actually and Pts of Authority would defo be in a Top 5 Linkin Park video anyway but I think What I've done is a masterpiece, it's 3:33 long but it looks at so much of humanity and makes great contrasts, the music fits perfectly with the video too and the timing's great

    You a LP fan btw?

    Nah. I used to be though. Got Hybrid Theory when I was... 10/11, I think. So nigh on 10 years ago. Then got ReAnimation (which I thought some of the stuff on there was quite good, but nobody else seemed to for some reason :emo: ), Meteora, then I just sort of fell out of love with them. They were my favourite band for the best part of 4 years, but I moved on after discovering death metal... and never looked back :moon:

    ahh, almost everyone I ask about liking Linkin Park says they used to be a fan but went off them (damn minutes to midnight!) and same really, been a fan since 2001/2000 - I remember Toonami played Points of authority at their interludes and before shows like DBZ started ahh nostalgia

    and cool, Old school LP is just timeless imo, surprising that you went off them that long ago hah. A lot of people seem to have done so since minutes to midnight 3 years ago but fair enough, I'm bad at categorising stuff into different types of metal

    System of a down? :cool:
