The video for "Stand" by REM has all the qualities that should make for the worlds worst music video; Farm animals, badly choreographed dancing, Slow motion synchronized jumping, and an old lady gardening. But still, I love it. So this could be my pick for best and worst video. Two for one.

I loved the song "Stand" when it first came out. I was just a boy but I recall loving this video too. That's back when you would have to watch MTV and just hope that the video you liked would come on.

Like speeding_snail's pick of the Beastie Boys Intergalactic, it's cheesy but it's intentionally so, where as the Journey video from my post is not. bgood79 said it well, "The best part about that Journey video is that they weren't fucking around. They were DEAD SERIOUS".

This post was inspired by this thread. bgood79's pick for worst video is a really great one: Mick and Bowie. bgood79 said of the video, "I guarantee that Mick and Bowie sat down to brainstorm this video and somebody (probably Mick) said something like this "Let's show the whole world that yeah we're both forty something, but we can still party and rock n roll!"

I hope Mick and Bowies friends give him shit for this all the time.

There's so much rubbish out there that's no use talking about, but one of my favorite video's is "Born Free" by M.I A. I hope you can get that in the USA because I heard it was banned from TV. Another is "Rabbit in your headlights" by UNKLE.

Yep. Those are both great videos.

I had never seen the Rabbit in your headlights video. That was bad ass!

I think that Intergalactic by the Beastie Boys also fits that category. Dancing robot, lab coats, bad power ranger style special effects. So bad it's awesome.

EDIT: I keep messing up the links :S

Great song, great video and really sad to see MCA go. I was hoping I'd get to see those 3 rap on stage together when they were 80 years old.
