The video was directed by Dave Grohl and it was nominated for two Grammy Awards, including Best Rock Video.

#6: “I Bet My Life” by Imagine Dragons
“I Bet My Life” by Imagine Dragons is a powerful rock song with an accompanying music video that is equally as impressive. The video tells the story of a young man who is trying to find his place in the world and ultimately decides to follow his dreams.
The video begins with the young man graduating from high school and then follows him as he tries to figure out what he wants to do with his life. He eventually decides to pursue a career in music, and the video culminates with him performing on stage with his band.
The “I Bet My Life” music video is an inspirational story about following your dreams and never giving up on yourself. It’s a great reminder that anything is possible if you set your mind to it.
#5: “Ain’t It Fun” by Paramore
In at number five is Paramore’s “Ain’t It Fun.” The video for this track, from the band’s self-titled album, starts with a group of kids playing in a field. As they run and play, they stumble across a human skeleton. This scares them, and they start to run away. Suddenly, the skeleton comes to life and starts chasing them! The kids are terrified, but they make it back to safety.
The video then cuts to the band performing the song in a bright, colorful room. The contrast between the dark beginning and the light middle is visually striking and makes for an enjoyable watch.
#4: “Something” by The Beatles
“Something” is a song by the English rock band the Beatles, written by George Harrison and released on the Abbey Road album in 1969. Along with “Here Comes the Sun”, it is one of Harrison’s best-known compositions from his years with the Beatles, and is considered one of the finest love songs written by any of the group’s members. In Hamilton’s memoir I, Me, Mine, he recalls: “My general feeling was ‘Oh God, I have actually written something that is hearing something.’ This was one of those moments that people talk about.” In his lyrics for “Something”, Harrison drew on his interest in Hinduism and acceptance of Eastern spiritual concepts; consequently, he later described the song as being “the best thing written in my life”.
#3: “All Apologies” by Nirvana
Nirvana’s “All Apologies” was one of the most iconic rock music videos of the 1990s. The video features the band members playing in a dark room with flashing lights and images projected onto them. The video is simple, but powerfully effective in conveying the emotion of the song.
#2: “Smells Like Teen Spirit” by Nirvana
Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was one of the most iconic rock songs of the 1990s, and the music video is just as iconic. Filmed in a high school gymnasium, the video features Nirvana performing the song while a group of teenagers moshes around them. The video is simple but effective, and it perfectly captures the raw energy of Nirvana’s music.
#1: ” Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen
The top spot on our list goes to the classic rock band Queen and their music video for “Bohemian Rhapsody.” The video was directed by Bruce Gowers and released in 1975, the same year as the song.

The video is simple but effective, and it perfectly captures the energy and excitement of a live Queen performance.
