The 1990s were a huge time for music videos. Labels were basically minting money by selling $18 CDs, and giving bands a budget of $1 million to make a crazy video didn't seem like a huge expense. Gone were the days when a band took four hours to shoot a video at their rehearsal space. Suddenly, Axl Rose was swimming with dolphins and Michael Jackson was dancing with Janet on a spaceship. The more high-concept, the more plays it got on MTV.
Now we have a question for you: What is the single greatest video of the 1990s? Vote for whatever you want, from "November Rain" to "Jeremy" to "Smells Like Teen Spirit" to "All the Small Things" to "…Baby One More Time." Any video is fair game as long as it hit the airwaves between January 1st, 1990 and December 31st, 1999. Just please only vote once and only for a single video.
