** Also notable was their video for "Wild Boys", where it's said that lead singer Simon Le Bon [[FatalMethodActing nearly drowned while filming]]. (Remember the bit where he's strapped to a windmill blade? According to some, at one point the wheel stopped turning while his head was underwater.) Le Bon has always denied the incideent, tho.

* GoldenEarring, "Twilight Zone," which went through heavy rotation during the early days of MTV.
** Notable as one of the earliest music videos that actually attempted to tell a story - of a spy being hunted through a dark city and tortured for information - using cinema-quality camerawork and staging, and it proved influential to a lot of the videos that followed after it.

* Music/DuranDuran's "Girls on Film", "Hungry Like The Wolf" and "Rio" -- early "cinematic" music videos that used both the letterbox format and exotic locations. [[UnfortunateImplications And very exotic ladies doing very exotic things]].

** Plus their ferocious and hilarious criticism of Televangelism, "Jesus - He knows Me"



** "Beat It", from the same album, in which Michael prevents two gangs from fighting by leading them in a line dance. It was the first video by Michael (or any black artist) to gain massive airplay on MTV and was Michael's first hard rock song. Additionally, it gets credit for pioneering the line dance and turf wars as tropes of the music video.
** "Music/{{Thriller}}", from -again- the same album, who pioneered the Videoclip With Big Budget genre and one of the first that used a short film scheme. And that choreography!

** "They Don't Care About Us", which drew controversy over its supposedly antisemitic lyrics, has two equally stunning videos directed by Spike Lee. One was in black and white, staged in a prison; the other was full of color, filmed in front of a Brazilian ''favela''.

* Music/LimpBizkit has "Break Stuff," wherein the band members attempt to play each other's instruments and a plethora of random people and celebrities show up and mime the lyrics, all intercut with skaters doing tricks around the skate park the video happens in. Also notable for causing Music/RageAgainstTheMachine's bassist to climb the set of the VMAs when his band's "Sleep Now in the Fire" video lost the award for Best Rock Video to this one.

** "Fell In Love With A Girl" -- notable for being filmed [[BuiltWithLego using LEGO brick animation]] and heavily pixelated video of the band, in order to simulate the LEGO footage.
** "The Hardest Button to Button", in which Jack and Meg go around town in a faux-stop-motion manner, popping up a few inches down their way with every beat of the drum (Meg even leaves a trail of drumkits). The video is even parodied in a short sequence in ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons'' episode "Jazzy and the Pussycats", where they guest-starred chasing Bart through Spingfield in the same fashion (with the song playing on the background, even).
