10. Vampire Weekend, "Diane Young"
Any time you get to share a meal with the charming indie-pop geniuses of Vampire Weekend and some of their closest hipster friends is night to savor and remember — even if the feast in question is a last supper. The frantic, hilarious video for "Diane Young" was a visual riff on Leonardo Da Vinci's historic religious painting, packed with guests like Sky Ferreira, Santigold and David Longstreth from Dirty Projectors. Not since Tom Petty's "Don't Come Around Here No More" video has a rock & roll dinner party gone this crazily; whoever brought the saxophone full of pot is welcome at our house any time. Just leave the guy in the balaclava at home — seems like kind of a buzzkill.
