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.

Just please only vote once and only for a single video.
