* Stabbing Westward's "Shame" alternates footage of the band playing in a rehearsal space with subtitled scenes of a woman trying to escape her psychotic stalker ex-boyfriend (fitting it's ObsessionSong lyrics). Despite being full of creepy and dramatic moments, there's a humorous TwistEnding to it all - throughout the rehearsal space scenes, band members keep secretly mouthing things and gesturing to each other, then leaving the room, eventually leaving lead singer Christopher Hall to play the song by himself... [[spoiler: It turns out the entire plot was a [[ShowWithinAShow movie-within-a-music-video]], which everyone in the band decided to sneak out of rehearsal to watch in the theater]]

** Their first video, for their cover of "Starships" by NickiMinaj, has them mustered out of the space program, whereupon they construct a spaceship out of random household objects.

* ElectricSix are good at making bizarre but cohesive music videos with a concept. Although not always linear, they match the song enough to usually qualify as a [[DepartmentOfRedundancyDepartment non-non-sequitor]]. For one of their albums they even decided to try to make a music video for every single song and ''almost'' managed to.

* Music/TakeThat's video for "How Deep Is Your Love" sees the band being held captive by a stalker. And ends with [[spoiler:Gary Barlow, tied to a kitchen chair, being pushed into a reservoir.]]

* The video for Music/{{Pavement}}'s "Painted Soldiers" combines a little performance footage (actually just Scott Kannberg recording guitar and vocals in a studio) with a plot about the members of the band getting word of being fired, one by one... [[spoiler: At the very end, it turns out they've all been replaced with members of Music/VerucaSalt, who mime to the song in a video-within-a-video. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen The original concept]] had them all replaced by {{Weezer}} instead, by the way).]]

* Music/{{Garbage}}'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYbLR67_F9E music video]] for ''Film/TheWorldIsNotEnough'' portrays the lead singer as a fembot / walking timebomb being constructed in an underground lair. She kills and replaces the actual lead just before she's scheduled to go onstage and perform the song, and finishes by blowing up the entire concert hall.

* Depeche Mode's videos started pretty badly, [[TheNineties until]] Creator/AntonCorbijn introduced a more concept-driven impetus "([[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aGSKrC7dGcY Enjoy the Silence]]" probably the most iconic from his era.)
** "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_f0zHgs0GpI Useless]]" looks like anormal just-the-band-playing video, [[SubvertedTrope until you reach the end]].

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4H0BMfqFP9c Everlong]] tells a story involving bizarre dreams from which the dreamer can connect back to reality by way of a phone call. Also Dave Grohl's giant bitchslap of death. Combined with ''Franchise/EvilDead''.

* Blues Traveller's video for ''Run Around'' was a tribute to ''Film/TheWizardofOz'' with the characters trying to get into a dance club.
