2. Beastie Boys - 'Sabotage'
Spike Jonze made his 1994 video for the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" seem like the beginning of a 1970s cop show, i.e. Barretta or Starsky and Hutch. Beavis and Butt-Head weren't the only ones confused by the whole thing: "This is gonna be cool when this video finally comes out," Beavis says. Butt-Head, always a little smarter, tries to correct him: "This is the real video, dumb-ass." It didn't win a single MTV Video Music Award, losing out to Aerosmith's "Cryin'" and R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts." In 2009, the channel made up for the slight by giving it a new award: Best Video (That Should Have Won a Moonman).
