Blah, Blah, Blah, we've heard it millions of times.  MTV sucks now that they don't play music videos anymore.  We all have been saying it since last century.  The music video on television is a lost art.  But, bands are still out there making amazing pieces of visual art to go along with their songs, and they are living out there on the interwebs.

With that said, I'm starting a new series, to bring your eyes to these videos that MTV would play, if they didn't suck and stop playing music videos.

First up, Bee Sting by The Wombats.

This would be a vintage MTV smash back in the day.  The intro of the video with the song title on the typewriter just screams 90's to me.  It's a performance video, which was a staple of MTV back in the day, and the colors that take over their instruments, their shirts, and their amps look like they could be straight out of Dire Straits' "Money For Nothing" video. 

It's fun, it's catchy and it would be played on MTV if they didn't suck.
