what great bands seem incapable of making decent music videos?

For me, Rush (possibly the only thing I can criticize them for!). Here's exhibit A


Any others?

The UG Awards exist only to instill me with existential doubt.

It's an awful video. Bon Jovi are one of my favourite bands but it's just an awful video. Runaway

Most rock videos are pretty shit. It usually shows the band playing in an industrial location, or in a church. Any large area.

Unless it's a well-funded mainstream rock band. Then it alternates between the industrial location and a love story with a happy ending. However, most of those bands aren't exactly "great"

Like I said, it's possibly the only thing I can say bad of them.


Plus, Rush music videos are the only way I can learn the drums for some of their songs.

When I saw the first post, I was like : "Omg this guy's gonna get raped by Fassa"


I should be more careful :p

Dream Theater. Most of their videos try to be really avant-garde, but it just looks bad. Plus, since their songs are like 21635643 minutes long, they always end up cutting out huge portions of the song, usually the AWESOME solos.

and then there's free jazz, which isn't even for musicians.

I don't even like AC\DC that much
but that video rocks and kicks so much ass.
that is just as cool as it gets.

I hope that isn't sarcastic. The best part is from 3:30-3:40.

I've never seen that video. My local music channel doesn't play any videos older than 3 years.

I like when bands get creative with their music videos, like Ok Go, although a lot of people would argue that their videos are much better than their music ever was.

Take the Time: all the cutting out destroys the song, James LaBrie looks like a girl/drag queen (as always ), and Myung TALKS (the 'hold it now' is suggesting it's him that says it)! HE NEVER TALKS!

Pull Me under: It has a CAVEMAN, again the song is heavily edited.

Forsken's only fine because the original song is only 4 minutes long, so no cutting out
