Not sure about here in the US, and a bit out of scene, but I remember that one video for "Wherever you will go" by the calling was probably one of the biggest videos ever in brazil, and I guess it stuck with me since its so simple, cheesy, yet one of the most memorable ones. (Cmon who doesn't remember the tattooed name and the cheating and the house and the band playing in water!?)

Personally I was also pretty engaged by linkin park music videos (points of authority and in the end were the ones in heavy rotation back then)

And as far as our scene, Best Of Me, Ok Go's treadmill one, blink's rock show, sic transit Gloria, and if you c Jordan just because of the sherminator.

Also important to note the list focuses on our scene, because out of context that list can look pretty embarrassing without things like Thriller, smells like teen spirit, etc.

Crabcore! That brings back memories. There was a time when that gif would show up in every major thread. It was like ap.net's version of Godwin's law

Great list btw.

Aw man, the nostalgia with that Head on Collision video is insane. I would have put My Friends Over You on there over that though.

Either Yellowcard's Only One or Ocean Avenue also.

And The White Stripes Fell In Love With a Girl.

I thought this was a pretty poor list, with the exception of Blink. The other videos hardly register as being iconic.

I've seen all these videos. I had to watch them all again to remind me what happens in them.

Not that iconic to me.

I would say that My Friends Over You and Fat Lip are both more iconic than Head On Collision and Still Waiting, respectively.

Also, I feel like Attack Attack just got thrown into this list to cater to that audience. Wouldn't call anything that band does as iconic, idk.

Agree with What's My Age Again, and partially with The Middle, although I don't think that it's "iconic" as much as the blink-182's video.

Regarding our scene, I would have added Weezer's Buddy Holly. Also My Chemical Romance would have been a great fit for this list.

Pretty much all of those videos were incredibly bland. Why no Buddy Holly?

Probably because all the writers at POZ were probably 3 years old when that came out haha
