Since the Cruising California video's thread is about to evolve into this type of discussion, might as well make this. Favorite video? Mine is the one for You're Gonna Go Far, Kid. I wanna make a movie outta that shit.

TKAA, DGB, Hammerhead, YGGFK and The Meaning Of Life, in this order.

You are cheating, bro. Narrow it down?

Hard to choose actually, so many great ones. I'd probably have to go with The Kids Aren't Alright though. Runners up include Defy You, I Choose, She's Got Issues and Stuff Is Messed Up. Notable mention also goes to Hit That for winning the best video without the band award.

It's tough for me between Gone Away, I Choose, SIMU, and a few others, but I think I'll have to go with Gone Away for the sheer emotional impact that video has.

06-08-2012, 11:00 PM
The Meaning of Life and The Kids Aren't Alright!

06-09-2012, 12:26 AM
"The Kids Aren't Allright" of course and "Days Go By" became my second favorite. "Can't Get My Head Around You" lost the second place for a little bit.

She's Got Issues

The video for this song is the reason my dislike for it changed to hatred.

I've always loved I Choose... cant say if its my favorite though... I really don't know anymore.

06-09-2012, 12:59 AM
Self-Esteem, All I Want, She's Got Issues and (Can't Get My) Head Around You.

If I really had to choose from those 4, I'd settle on Self Esteem.

I've never been a huge fan of their videos for their "serious" songs, with the odd exception like Days Go By. CGMHAY, Gone Away and Can't Repeat are up there.

Pretty Fly is the best though. Nothing comes close from the joke songs except maybe Want You Bad. Dat ending.

06-09-2012, 01:34 AM
The alternate video for Can't Repeat, then maybe TKAA

06-09-2012, 02:06 AM
Gotta Get Away vid.

06-09-2012, 02:58 AM

Defy You is probably my favorite. The song is awesome too, I find it really underrated. Pity it didn't end up on Splinter.

06-09-2012, 03:33 AM
Do you guys know there is a video for Gotta Get Away?

my favourites: Gotta Get Away, The Meaning of Life, All I Want, The Kids Aren't Alright, Defy You... and maybe Days Go By.

06-09-2012, 03:38 AM
I'm suprised no-one has said Cool To Hate.

That's because it's not an official video.

06-09-2012, 04:55 AM

2) Gone away
3) Defy you / Can't get my head around you

P.S. A poll would have been nice ;)

I was gonna make a thread like this, but I had the funny feeling that it already existed...

Anyways, I'm going to say Gone Away. Not so much that it's one of my favorite songs, but it's a very tasteful artistic expression of the feelings of loss and despair being felt after a traumatic event. The desolate setting was perfect, as was the lighting. The band never breaks the solemn mood. It's also interesting to note that the band is never once shown together; they're always separated throughout the course of the video. If you need any further evidence of the impact of this song and video combo, there's usually always tragic comments on the video's YouTube page.

I've felt the band has always strived for meaningful music videos, and effectively tying them into a song. Even something as simple as Million Miles Away gets the job done. Though their high budget productions usually always please.

Now, here's to them releasing the Beheaded music video...

'Defy you' and 'Can't get my head around you' :)
