UG Awards: Vote For Best Music Video

Which act nailed their visual efforts better than any other? Place your nominations and YouTube links here and they might win an award.

Ultimate Guitar

As part of our forthcoming UG Awards 2012 post, we're asking readers to vote in a new category each day for a special post over the holidays.

Today's category:

Who had the best music video in 2012?

Post a YouTube link as your nomination in the comments, and upvote any that you agree with. The video with the highest number of up votes wins the award.


The video had to be officially unveiled in 2012, and it has to be the video for a recorded song (no backstage video entries).

Voting tips

  • Place ONE nominations per comment, or the upvotes won't count. You can place as many nominations as you want across different comments, though.

  • Do a quick search of the page to make sure someone else didn't already nominate that video. Just scroll down to the bottom so all the comments have loaded, then do a search on the page (ctrl-f on a PC, cmd-f on a mac) for their name.

    You're welcome to discuss the topic in the comments and reply to nominations, as usual.

    Remember to vote in our other award categories too. The list so far:

    Band Of The Year

    Guitarist Of The Year

    Best New Act

    Best Comeback

    Biggest Drama Of 2012

    Best Live Event

      not saying it is the best music though.
      Nero Galon
      I really like that song and am not afraid to say it. And when watching the video it reminded me of Tonight, Tonight by Smashing Pumpkins so much.
      Storm Corrosion - Drag Ropes Very different video, stunning visuals and a disturbingly moving storyline.
      BTBAM- Astral Body
      I'm surprised I don't see anybody voting for "Forced Gender Reassignment" yet. Those guys must be sleeping in 'til noon.
