YouTube Nation: the Best Music Videos of 00’s

As I state in my author bio: I hate YouTube. I can’t figure out why, it’s probably totally irrational, but I really do hate it. If you send me a YouTube link, it will take a hell of a lot of convincing for me to click it. That said, these five videos have all caused me to break my golden rule and succumb to my least favorite website.
YouTube Nation: the Best Music Videos of 00’s

4Here it Goes Again – OK Go (Trish Sie& OK Go)

When this video came out, there was not a single person on my college campus that wasn’t talking about it. Not because the song was anything really worth hearing, but because the video was so damn cool. I mean, watching a group of guys do a choreographed dance on treadmills?! The number of treadmill related accidents post Here It Goes Again must have skyrocketed with people trying to mimic the brilliantly filmed video. While power-electro-alt-pop-rock isn’t my…preferred genre, there is no doubt about it – this video is just an amazingly fun thing to watch.
Regardless of whether you share my hatred for YouTube or not (I have yet to find someone who does) there is no denying that these five videos are hallmarks of the 2000s. The viral nature of all these videos means that there is not a wall, ocean, nor landmass that they haven’t crossed. That is, I admit to the beauty of YouTube and our globalized society (for all its other faults). These five videos are the best illustration of the different elements of visual art and music during this time period. They are, for lack of a better phrase, the best of the best that the 2000s had to offer – and if you don’t believe me, just check out their number of hits on YouTube.
