9. "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes"

A lot of people forget that the Red Hot Chili Peppers first hit the scene way back in 1984. Their first single "True Men Don't Kill Coyotes" didn't generate a lot of heat, but they were up against "Born In The USA," "Like A Virgin" and "Purple Rain" that year. What this video lacks in budget and coherent plot, it more than makes up for in raw energy. Shockingly enough, it actually got some MTV airplay, and very slowly started them on an upward trajectory.
