The top 10 rock music videos of 2010

Rock music has always been visuals as well as musical sounds. Some of the earliest rock and roll videos were little more than film clips of songs set to music, but as the years went by, musicians and directors began to experiment with the form, using the video to tell a story, convey a mood, or just show off their acting chops. Here are ten of the best rock music videos from 2010.

1. “All I Wanna Do” by The Pretty Reckless

This video tells the story of a young woman who dreams of being a rock star, and will do whatever it takes to make that dream come true. She stages a robbery so she can get her hands on some money, and then uses that money to buy instruments and equipment. When she’s finally ready to put her band together, she doesn’t hesitate to abduct the members she needs. It’s all in the name of rock and roll, and it’s all very entertaining.

2. “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen

This classic song gets a modern twist in this clever video from Queen. The band is shown performing in front of a green screen, and the footage is used to create a series of visual gags and references to other films and TV shows. It’s all done with such skill that it’s hard to spot all of the references, but that just makes it all the more fun to watch over and over again.

3. “I Bet You Look Good on the Dancefloor” by Arctic Monkeys

This video features the band performing in what looks like an abandoned warehouse, surrounded by debris and broken glass. As they play, we see security footage of people dancing wildly in other parts of the building – people who seem possessed by some kind of primal energy. It’s a great contrast to the cool indifference of the band members, and it makes for a very suspenseful video.

4. “Kids” by MGMT

This video follows two kids as they run away from home and embark on a surreal adventure through an alternate reality version of America. They hitchhike with aliens, meet animals that talk (and sing),and generally have a great time despite being pursued by eerie-looking grownups who want to capture them. It’s goofy and fun, but also strangely creepy at times.

5. “Rope” by Foo Fighters

This is one weird video – it starts out with shots of Dave Grohl walking down a city street at night ( intercut with shots of him playing guitar in an alley), but things quickly get stranger from there. He ends up going into what looks like an abandoned building where he finds… well, you’ll just have to watch it yourself to find out what he finds. Let’s just say that it involves puppets, stop-motion animation, and some very unexpected creatures.

2. OK Go – “This Too Shall Pass”
OK Go is known for their creative and innovative music videos, and “This Too Shall Pass” is no exception. The video features a Rube Goldberg machine that took over two months to construct. It was directed by James Frost and OK Go frontman Damien Kulash Jr.
