I just want to say at the start that by Animated Music Videos, I'm very explicitly not talking about fan-made 'AMV' stuff. I don't want to see your screenframes of Naruto/DBZ/Akira to a Linkin Park song. By Animated Music Video in this context, I mean music videos put out by musicians which happen to have had an animated video made specifically for that song. So something like a Gorillaz or Daft Punk video would qualify.

The reason for this thread is that every so often, I stumble across a video to a song and find that they put a ridiculous amount of effort and time into an animation of some kind. Sometimes it's artsy, sometimes it tells a story of some kind, sometimes it's just weird and interesting. So I'm interested to see which ones the rest of Dakka has found that I might not have seen. Here's a couple to get us started:-
















So come on Dakka. Hit me up with some good stuff.

Hadn't seen the Pearl Jam, had forgotten the Disturbed (great video that), and Batmetal doesn't qualify because someone animated the videos separate to the musician (great videos though, so I'm not complaining too much).

Here's a sliiiightly NSFW one I'd forgotten about.

Spoiler:



And another Caravan Palace:-

I second "take on me", but also want to put forward:

Sledgehammer by Peter Gabriel, The Wall by Pink Floyd and Money for Nothing by Dire Straits as classics that come to mind when thinking of animated music videos.

Thread should be marked NSFW for the Sturgill Simpson Good Look video and maybe Caravan Palace Lone Digger as well. Or at least wrap Good Luck in spoiler tags marked NSFW.

Those two songs are excellent though, I've had them on repeat for ages.

I’m partial to Monsters and Men. The song Little Talks is beautiful and sad, more so than the surreal (unrelated?) story being animated. Yet the sum is greater than the parts.

"Money for nothing' was a groundbreaking animated video for being mostly cgi at the time. The original video is hard to find as it's been deemed unacceptable and mostly censored.

Here's a still from it, and yeah, in 1985 that was pretty much what cgi looked like.

I've always been a fan for a lot of the Gorillaz stuff, with some random nice cameos as well at times. Some of their albums really didn't float my boat at all (the first two were awesome though) but it has been fun watching their style (and the technology) evolve.
