As always with a list such as this, commentary is kept to a minimum; the fun and joy should be watching the clips, whether for the first time or the first time in years.

As late as the mids, it was novel just to see certain artists in music videos. Hell, it was novel to see them in photographs, or magazines-- in any context outside of their record sleeves and live performances. The alt-rock boom pushed some artists into a brighter spotlight with larger music video budgets. But in the first half of the decade, clips for all but the biggest pop stars were modest affairs, typically without narrative or special effects.

Seeing someone walk and talk and sing and move on video was a thrill in itself, and personality went a long way. Polly Jean Harvey certainly had personality. This simple yet arresting clip is a good example of both the limitations of those early videos and how an outsized presence could transcend those limitations.
Decidedly lo-fi yet still looking like an event right out of the box, Beck's "Loser" clip introduced his entire aesthetic in just a few minutes.

It made the L. This goofy, highly re-watchable video from the ex-Pixies singer is pretty much what's good about the above two videos combined into one clip. Ol' Dirty Bastard [ft. By the end of the decade, 70s cop dramas and blaxploitation films were an established part of the Gen X vocabulary. The casual construction of the video hews closely to the homemade YouTube mash-up clips of today-- there's no effort to make the cuts seamless, or let technological feats overshadow the stars.

The Verve wound up in hoc to Rolling Stones manager Allen Klein for lifting the central string sample of their defining single; they also lifted the general concept of the song's video, this time from Massive Attack's "Unfinished Sympathy". In both cases, they improved on the original. Richard Ashcroft's brashness and dickish disregard for other people probably didn't require acting chops. Dre [ft. Basically the template for G-Funk videos to come, Dre and Snoop's hour odyssey has its needlessly mean-spirited moments basically any time a woman is on screen.
But the small details-- Dre laughing off getting a job, the little kid dancing, the modified cars, the stocked fridge, the tracking shots through Snoop's house-- helped construct a panorama of an emerging cultural phenomenon.
