Videos are a great marketing tool; a way for people to see the band. It’s hard to catch good metal on TV these days, so we tend to rely on places like YouTube to see our favorite band videos or live footage of them playing. Personally, it has done wonders for broadening my musical horizons. Without videos, I probably wouldn’t have found some of the music I enjoy today.
For the most part, videos are kind of cheesy. They are often silly and do not serve the song any justice. That’s fine, I still get to see the band and form some kind of opinion. Other times, videos are very well done and honor the intent of the song for which the video was created. Below are my 5 music video favorites of 2011 in no particular order. Unlike “Best Video Countdown” you might have seen on MTV and VH1, these are my favorite videos because they are good videos, not a plug for a good song.
