Seems to be a lot of threads on videos so thought we should have one on Favourites (not Best)

Love this one, i mean they look menancing at the best of time, but give them weapons and they look even meaner Rammstein – Ich Will

I first saw this a couple of years ago whilst drunk and I can honestly say it is one of the most epic visual journeys I have been on, I'm not even a huge fan of the band but this video is truly remarkable and in my mind the best metal video of all time.

Bring Me The Horizon - Sleepwalking

I first heard the song on my friends phone. I loved it and looked it up on YouTube. It's honestly in my humble opinion, the best music video I've seen for awhile. and the song is one of my favourites.

Favourite, not best? Ok then, you're on. It's very simple - just black & white concert footage.It doesn't take the viewer on a journey, doesn't tell a story & hasn't had a Hollywood budget thrown at it. It's not even a serious song but my god, it puts a grin on my face. There's just something so damn joyous about it. It makes me happy & for that reason, it's my favourite

Sabaton - Metal Crue

Ha ha! Is it bad that I knew exactly who you meant before I clicked? That gob is totally wasted on a straight guy. (assuming he's straight)

There's something about that video that I quite enjoy, too. I also like the video for Shadow Moses. They had a video a while ago, might've been for Chelsea Smile, which was pretty much someone walking around town in a Predator costume. It was fairly amusing.

Brilliant band. I really like this song, too. Some of the live videos of them on Youtube are insane.

Yep, it's a corker, isn't it? you seem to like the daft side of rock too. Are you also an ex punk by any chance?

Pain - Zombie Slam - Peter Tagtgren kinda looks like a cross between Johnny Depp & Christopher Walken. Which is never a bad thing

Found this the other day. One of the best fan made vids I've ever seen. For Sabaton's cover of Rammstein's Feuer Frei

My favourite video(s) changes like........every day. lol

But I just love
Marilyn Manson - Man That You Fear
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rthl_O4_G2o

It's like it's from a movie (or a short story if you're familiar with 'The Lottery')

It was the perfect end to his Antichrist Superstar era, with the witch-hunt theme and the question of 'Hmm did I go a teensy bit too far?'.

All the hoo-har and protest at his gigs, parents worried their children listened to him, all seems quite strange now

Wasn't that more of a ' conservative middle America' thing?

Pretty much. He was blamed for the Columbine shootings by a large portion of 'Bible-belt America', because the Eric and Dylan listened to his music. Eminem mentions it in his song 'The Way I Am':

When a dude's gettin bullied and shoots up his school
And they blame it on Marilyn (on Marilyn).. and the heroin
Where were the parents at? And look where it's at
Middle America, now it's a tragedy
Now it's so sad to see, an upper class ci-ty

^ as does Todd Snider...

"Marilyn Manson’s real name isn't even Marilyn Manson,
He's a skinny public high school Kid from Florida,
Not some monster from out of this world and like of a lot other skinny long hair public
High school kids he was sick of getting
Beaten up by the pulling guard all week only to go out on the weekend,
And watch the Quarterback get all the girls so,
He formed a band man
Now' he gets all the girls,
A few years later a couple of latchkey kids go tragically
Mad and everybody's standing around the television store at the mall trying to figure out what went wrong,
This guy says,
You think the life of a kid going to high school could've gotten so bad this other guy says nah,
It's just the words to one of them goddamn Marilyn Manson songs,
You know the one"

No, I am not an ex-punk at all. I always found punk interesting though. I am more into 1970s rock such as Free, SAHB, Genesis, Jethro Tull and on occasion MC5, Rory Gallagher and my "guilty pleasure" of Sweet and Slade.

Ah, that'll be it then

I used to be a bit partial to Jethro Tull. Living In The Past is one of my favourite songs of all time

SAHB - Alex Harvey?

Yes - The Sensational Alex Harvey Band. Take a look/listen at this - you may have already seen it: A little weird but very very good. Quality is not great but pretty good considering it is probably 40 years old. It is from the In Concert series. Humble Pie were on the same bill apparently - another of my favourites!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fN3JpK3eZ3s

Or this - got to love those Norwegian hippies in the crowd

To be fair both Sweet and, to a lesser extent, Slade were very underrated because of their "Glam rock" image.

I saw Slade live and they were brilliant, and very, very, loud!!
