2. “You Better Run”-[lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Pat Benatar[/lastfm]

Who knew that thirty years later hipster rock girls all over the world would be wearing the same tight striped-tee and skin-tight black pants combo as Pat Benatar in the second ever video played on MTV?

Our favorite thing is how simple this video is. It’s basically a performance in an industrial looking space, but it still tops most of the music videos made today.

Why? Because good music trumps all special effects.
