100 music videos that defined the decade. Spanning from commercial smashes to small art pieces to to pure pop and to insanely confrontational. Looking back, there's some videos that clearly couldn't be made in today's climate — and in retrospect are hard to watch, mainly due to the violence — but there's also plenty that stand the test of time and are compelling now as they were upon initial release. And going through 10 years of videos means a high probability of missing something, but all these feel worthy for one reason or another.
These are best enjoyed via the YouTube playlist — which omits two Jay Z videos that don't seem to officially be on the platform — but also read on for the list.
Happy New Year. Happy New Decade.
