2010 mtv vma / indoob picks – best rock video


This is a category that I have no bias in whatsoever. The bands nominated I do not follow, and have only recently heard these songs for the first time. Although it is possible I have heard some of these artists’ other songs, I wouldn’t know who they were unless someone told me. I don’t mean to be ignorant of them, it’s just my musical ventures haven’t made their way to hear them yet. However, I’m not completely ignorant to who they all are. A few of them I have heard of and know some of them are popular either by performances on live TV or maybe Twitter trends. But let’s talk about them who I might think may win the BEST ROCK VIDEO. In my opinion, some of the rock artists I do know have shamelessly been left out… but we won’t talk about that here.

  • I’ve heard of 30 Seconds to Mars, but I couldn’t tell you any of their songs. This is a nice video of the bike riding all throughout the city. The song isn’t too bad either. I don’t have a lot to say about this one other than I love the sunset and night cityscape backdrops. It gives this video a really warm feeling to it, which it’s supposed to do to enhance the song.
  • Florence + the Machine I have never heard of. But I managed to tune in a few times to some of the other MTV channels and I kept seeing this video being played. I will say that this song is catchy, to me at least, if not first sounding weird. Weird in a good way, like a different sound. I wouldn’t associate this song with rock, but maybe their other stuff is more rock-sounding. Actually, that’s getting into something I know a lot of people will start to complain about so never mind. As for the video, definitely rates high on the artistic meter. What it’s saying to me, I haven’t a clue. But it’s visually stimulating because I can’t quite look away from it. Because it’s so weird, it might have a chance at winning. Due to not knowing any of these songs and basing it on looks and sounds of video alone, my vote goes to this “Dog Days Are Over.”
  • I literally just saw this video by MGMT, another band I’ve heard a lot about but haven’t heard their music. The song is not quite something I’m used to, and the video is even crazier. I wasn’t sure where it was going or what was going on, but madness ensued and I think I was a little scared. But it’s original as far as I’m concerned because I don’t think I’ve seen anything like it. I don’t think I want to again, which might mean I’m not quite a fan, but I would pass on voting for this.
  • I heard of Muse last year, I forget where. Once again, not familiar with their music but I think they are fairly popular. I liked this video and the giant teddy bears attacking. I thought it was cute. It’s also pretty memorable which might win them this award. I really can’t make up my mind who would get it though.
  • Here we have a band I’ve also heard about, first through Twitter, called Paramore. I don’t know a lot about them, and the video isn’t much to be impressed with. Okay, I think it looks cool to be singing into a light bulb, but if this were to win, I think it would be due to their popularity… and they have a big fan base. I think that they do, but again, I don’t know this band or any that I listed.

    Welcome back! Is this season 2 now? Sterling and Kortney return from hiatus but there's not enough time to talk about all the things that happened in the last few months or years since the last episode. Some of those things they don't have enough time to talk about include HBO Max, Disney+, Heaven's Gate, Tenet, Letter Kenny, and more. Sterlin […]

    Sterling invites Vilissa, Janelle, Neysha, and Nick to join him and Kortney for a special live episode discussing the regular nonsense such as appearing (and later disappearing) mirror monoliths in the desert. Sterling also asks a series of questions which yields a favorite response of "cotton balls of sheep."  This is also the last episode of 2020 […]

    What is Dreamstorm? We couldn't tell you but it's fascinating and you need to experience what we know of it (watch the YouTube clip here) and if it can help manifest the gingerbread Oreos that Sterling craves. Also, Sterling learns a startling fact about Kortney! Sterling also freaks Kortney out with the rules of the Elevator Game which may or may […]
