Listen all ya'll

So MTV released the noms for this year's video awards (hosted again by Russell Brand, here's hoping he makes more Jonas Brothers virginity jokes and someone gets needlessly offended by them for the second year in a row). I of course have seen maybe one of the videos. What interested me was the addition of a new category: Best Video (That Should Have Won a Moonman). Apparently they dug waaay back into the 80's and 90's (and a couple from this decade) to randomly pick several awesome videos that never got a VMA but should have. I kind of like this idea. And pretty much all of their picks are solid; I would be happy with any one of them winning. They are:

Beastie Boys, Sabotage
Bjork, Human behaviour
U2, Where the streets have no name
Foo Fighters, Everlong
George Micheal, Freedom
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Into the great wide open
Dre and Snoop, Nothin but a G thang
OK Go, Here it goes again
Radiohead, Karma Police
David Lee Roth, California girls*

*OK, this is the only one that does not fit with anything I said and whoever included it in this category needs a good slapping both upside the head and across the face. I would rather eat bacon then vote for this video.
