Page 3 of 3

Red Hot Chili Peppers - "Under the Bridge" (1991)

Red Hot Chili Peppers' best single.

Nirvana - "In Bloom" (1992)

"Smells Like Teen Spirit" was the obvious choice, but "In Bloom" is a much better video and song.

Beck - "Loser" (1993)

Fuck yeah, Beck!

Beastie Boys - "Sabotage" (1994)

Greatest use of faux moustaches in music video history.

The Notorious B.I.G. - "Big Poppa" (1995)

It's fun to see Diddy before he was Diddy.

Foo Fighters - "Big Me" (1996)

Dave Grohl!

Missy Elliot - "The Rain" (1997)

Missy through a fisheye lens freaks us out.

Fatboy Slim - "The Rockafeller Skank" (1998)

Right about now, Fatboy Slim's probably making sick beats.

Q-Tip - "Vivrant Thing" (1999)

Abstract.

Fatboy Slim - "Weapon of Choice" (2000)

I've gotta fever, and the only prescription is more Christopher Walken.
