Every now and then, bands like to take things to the movies when they make their music videos. Here are some of the finest examples.
30 SECONDS TO MARS - 'THE KILL'
Heeeeeeeeeeeeere's Jared. Taking on the weirdness and clastrophobia of The Shining, 30STM dealt out the creepy thick and fast. The slow burning nature of the song only added to the atmosphere too.
FOO FIGHTERS - 'EVERLONG'
The Evil Dead is laundered as one of the best and most innovative horror movies of all time. No wonder Foo Fighters wanted to pay homage with one of their best songs.
ICE NINE KILLS - 'THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY'
I mean, when you're writing an album completely inspired by movies you should really take your opportunity to recreate them right? Here INK take on Friday The 13th and do it serious justice.
PVRIS - 'WHITE NOISE'
Can you believe that Poltergeist was a Stephen Speilberg film? It was bloody terrifying! Anyway, the sight of Lynn Gunn sliding up the wall is enough to give anyone nightmares, Spielberg directed or not.
RAMMSTEIN - 'SONNE'
Showing off the brutal realities that came with Snow White And The Seven Dwarfs, your favourite German industrialists really smashed it with this beauty.
MARILYN MANSON - 'DOPE HAT'
Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory is messed up enough to begin with, so just imagine what horrible things could crawl out of the God of Fuck's mind when parodying it.
MUSE - 'KNIGHTS OF CYDONIA'
Ahhhhh the spaghetti western, a long forgotten artform. But what happens when you combine that era of film with kung-fu and some mental technology? You get this mad 6 minutes of majestry.
ALIEN ANT FARM - 'MOVIES'
Imagine writing a song called 'Movies' and NOT included loads and loads of movie references in your music video. It would be like leaving the house and realising you had left you head in the bathroom.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE - 'GHOST OF YOU'
Taking inspiration from Saving Private Ryan, this was always going to be a total heartbreaker wasn't it?
THE SMASHING PUMPKINS - 'TONIGHT, TONIGHT'
This is just absolutely beautiful isn't it? Inspired by Georges Méliès' 1902 silent classic A Trip To The Moon, this Pumpkins visual representation was so good that it won some lovely shiny awards.
FALL OUT BOY - 'A LITTLE LESS SIXTEEN CANDLES, A LITTLE MORE "TOUCH ME"'
From The Lost Boys to Blade, FOB really killed it with their vampire references in this little epic.
