With every new day comes a new song – and with most new songs come a new video. While times have changed in terms of the way most people find new music (not to mention the style of the music itself), one thing is for sure: people don’t see as much music videos as they used to.
Some of these songs are just so exciting that they make you start grooving in your chair, and their videos are equally worthy of your attention. You might even see a video for a song that you haven’t heard before!
Check them out.
4. Lupe Fiasco “Words I Never Said ft. Skylar Grey”
With a video plot that resembles a mini-movie, Lupe Fiasco’s hit song comes to life and is further improved by the visual style that is present in his excellent video. Matching his harder edge sound and lyrics, this video also shows some pretty emotional and powerful scenes, making the storytelling of his music even more intriguing.

3. Beastie Boys “Make Some Noise”
While this video can be interpreted in multiple ways, the most common theme it seems to have is some form of a hangover and crazy drug experience, much like the movie “Hangover”.
As the three Beastie Boys (played by Elijah Wood, Seth Rogen, and Danny McBride) stumble around what seems to be the same set as the “Party Rock Anthem” video later on, you see them run into people that look like famous stars (which they are – but remember that the Beastie Boys are supposed to be tripping out).
This video features just about the most cameos of big name actors ever seen since a certain video by Jimmy Kimmel called “I’m F*@#ing Ben Affleck”:
2. Chris Brown & Benny Benassi “Beautiful People”
Regardless of his past issues with violence and girlfriend beating (Rihanna is too cute to hit!), Chris Brown still undeniably makes some good musical tunes. This one has a little bit of a dance vibe to it, thanks to the beat making skills of Benny Benassi.
And, on top of that, this video features some other famous rappers like Nelly, Pharrell, Mary J Blige, and more (only as cameos, not on the track itself).

1. LMFAO “Party Rock Anthem ft. Lauren Bennett, GoonRock”
While you may have already heard this one bumping in the club, blasting at a Vegas pool party at the Cosmopolitan, or blowing up your radio, have you seen the cleverly rocking video?
With a dash of some good old Michael Jackson “Thriller” vibes thrown into the plot of “28 Days Later”, LMFAO makes you want to get up and dance like a fool. It also seems to feature a cameo by one of our favorite robots from Destructoid at about the 2:00 minute mark.
