Evolution captures a time when a New Wave band could ride cheapo synths and deformed masks to a major-label deal. Most of the clips evoke a nuclear winter where people are less devastated than just really weird: Though many "What the fuck?" moments abound, the clips are full of goofy energy and catchy tunes. Best is Mongoloid, a creepy short by cult filmmaker Bruce Connor that sets Fifties sci-fi clips to an anthem about a guy with Down syndrome.

    “Vans”

    The Pack | 2006

    Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
