What do you think is the best music video of all time?

I think I have to go with Michael Jackson’s Bad.

Bad? Ummmmm hell no.

Not the best, but one of the best, in my opinion.

R10 I like that one a lot, but my favorite music video from Devo is "That's Good" with the crinkle cut french fry and donut.

This one is personal, because local Los Angeles radio station, KROQ, was announcing that it was going to be happening, so my boyfriend and I both cut work, and we jumped in his BMW 2002 and drove downtown. Great fun.

I'll second Michael Jackson, but not that both tacky single and video "Bad." For me, it's his "Thriller" video instead.

People might forget this but this video came out in 2005 and was done in one take. You watch and think nothing of it now but that’s because it was before YouTube and TikTok and Instagram.

It was like the first viral video before viral videos existed. This song got as much play and attention because of the video.

Anyone saying things like "loserdonna" is obviously the most basic bitch of all and doesn't know when to shut their stupid hole, because their projection is quite obvious.
