Listening to Smashing Pumpkins at work got me thinking about how amazing their music videos were. Remember those? I used to get so excited whenever my favorite bands would release new videos on MTV. No longer. But at least they can be found on YouTube and iTunes. I decided to devote a post to some of my all-time favorites. They bring back some serious memories, yes?

What you should learn from this:
1.) Most music went to hell after the '90s
2.) Music videos used to have meaning and intelligence
3.) Michel Gondry is a god amongst men.
