The Top 25 Music Videos of 2012, Nos. 15-11
More of the best music videos from the last year are coming up, and this time I promise they won't all be about suicide and sadness as they seem to have been yesterday. Nope, this time a little levity is on the menu, but a little murder and black magic as well. Allons-y!
15. The Boxing Lesson, "Better Daze"
Never has a band made an alien invasion so damned cute. Director Eric Power gave us a weird little black occupation of the Austin night set to the kicking power of The Boxing Lesson. I still laugh every time the big-legged alien kicks the guy in the back of the head. It's so damned petty and wonderful.
14. Andrew Jackson Jihad, "Fucc the Devil"
Andrew Seward of Against Me! helped AJJ put this video together on a day off during a tour, which seems like just a annoying way to make themselves look more industrious than the rest of us. The devil pisses blood and then takes on Slash in a battle for a roadie's soul. That's the real spirit of rock and roll.
13. Freezepop, "Doppelganger"
You can watch the video above, but the real way to experience "Doppleganger" is to visit the Web site that lets you switch between the "good" and "douchey" versions at will. Further proof of the evolution of the music video and its capabilities online. It's a hell of a good pop explosion as well!
