Starbuck lets us in on "Five Things Not to Do in a Music Video"

I know that i'm personally sick of seeing 50 variations of lights inside of dingy warehouses. And all of this with no story? When people think of your metal band, they think of you playing in a sweaty warehouse or bar anyways. Why not defy the...[read more]

If the list had a #6, it should be The House Party. Bring Me The Horizon, 3OH!3 (sort of), Modern Day Escape, Cash Cash, etc and etc. It's as overdone as The Warehouse.

Great list. I get so tired of all these. I think the exception to the girlfriend one would be Hayley Williams showing up in NFG vids :)

YOURE TOTALLY RIGHT!!! I actually turned down that modern day escape video because of the lame house party idea. I did one house party vid for Jonny Craig but I feel like I did it in a very different psychological way.
