* 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''.

* Music/FallOutBoy have had many concept videos, including ones about vampires, {{High School Dance}}s, and some that end with AllJustADream. Quite a few of them [[LyricsVideoMismatch have very little to do with the actual lyrics of the song]], and they can get quite surreal. The Youngblood Chronicles is a series of 11 music videos for every song on their album Save Rock and Roll, which form one single (through still MindScrew-y) narrative when watched together.
* Several of Music/PanicAtTheDisco's videos, including "I Write Sins Not Tragedies" (a circus wedding filled with clowns in lingerie), "The Ballad of Mona Lisa" (a funeral with the ghost of the dead person trying to prove the murderer), and "Lying Is The Most Fun A Girl Can Have Without Taking Her Clothes Off" (a world where people's heads are encased in fish tanks and breathe underwater).
** "Build God, The We'll Talk" probably belongs here, too, and might be the best example. It's all about a "porno mime" and a groupie falling in love, having a relationship(all in mime) then that relationship falling apart through(mimed) infidelity.

* The various Arcade Fire videos appear to take place in the same animated world.
* The video for {{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).]]
