The Videos That Don't Suck

Posted by - 09:06 PM on 09/09/09
Because the videos on MTV's VMAs all pretty much suck, James Montgomery has picked his favorite "under the radar" selections from this past year.

the only VMA category that has any good videos is for Breakthrough, which isn't surprising at all. and the MGMT video still creeps me out.

Wow, looking at this year's noms for the first time.

That's absolutely terrible. Or are music videos really that boring these days? I mean, "Womanizer," seriously?

The only one deserving of video of the year is "Love Lockdown."

And for that, either FOB or Green Day.

Haha, I've always been a VMAs nerd and voted Death Cab For Cutie, Radiohead, and Fall Out Boy for their respective categories weeks ago. Most of the categories are awful, which isn't surprising. For some reason I always look forward to the VMAs though, and get upset when the few good nominated bands don't win.

The music video is sort of a dead art to me. I hardly ever watch them anymore, but I really enjoyed the ones Mr. Montgomery listed.
