I've noticed that there has been a huge swarm on youtube of 'Lyric Videos' by bands instead of the usual music videos we have been seeing for years. With such a style of video having potentially low production costs and lower levels of skill requirement, it's no wonder even the underground scene is taking the new hype by storm.

Do you love or hate lyric videos?

Link ones you find exceptionally good/bad!

Hey I didn't say the idea was new.. Just that there has been a sudden surge in these types of videos. Mainly from an animation angle rather than filmed footage.

^ That album is sick. Been listening to it since the release. It's like a trip to space. LOL
Most of the time, music videos ruin songs for me. Everyone looks pretentious and unfitting. Lyric videos might be a little better but i've only seen fan-made lyric videos like this one:

It's fun to sing along to songs sometimes.
Not necessarily that song, but pop-rock ballads/anthems and the like.
But boys will be boys and girls have those eyes
that'll cut you to ribbons, sometimes
and all you can do is just wait by the moon
and bleed if it's what she says you ought to do

Fan made ones are fine but it seems so weird when a band does that.

this is how i feel too. but i don't mind them, i'm just happy i get to listen to a song. it's usually only done with the singles before an album drops, from what i've seen.

the fact that they'll lose any stupid sound effects or dialogue from a potential music video is alright by me

I think it's so the band can get the song on YouTube in an official way before they make the actual video.

It would be cool if it was about creative typography as an art form (which it sometimes is), but since most people mostly don't enjoy them for that, I don't really see the point.


Good animated typography would be awesome.

I think Alice in Chains song Stone had a lyric video?

Personally I really don't mind. A lot of music videos made a really cheesy and same techniques used over and over. I'd probably go down the Paul Westerburg route

I like them when they don't suck.

Kind of like basically everything else.


Also, why is there no 'Indifferent' option?

I enjoy them just because they are a lot harder to screw up than a music video, which is what tends to be the case with most of the bands I like.

I like them when the lyrics are right and they don't use that standard blue background with white font movie maker crap.
Someone is wrong on the internet. Only you can help.

You forgot to mention that they were all made in 2007-2008, used comic sans, were in 240p and used the same transitions over and over
