My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #14

#14: "Shut Me Up" - Mindless Self Indulgence
Release Date: 2006
Director: Jhonen Vasquez
Fun Fact: You may recognise the name Jhonen Vasquez; he's the creator of the classic cult animated cartoon series Invader Zim!
This is truly one of my favourite videos of all time. It's one of those videos, and songs, and bands as well, that just don't get the recognition they deserve. Mindless Self Induglence as a band get, for some reason, categorised into the "emo" genre but they're anything but. They're industrial, rap, techno, rap, punk and much more, and they also like to use video game sounds into their music too. If you've not heard them, give them a listen below.

As for the video, it's just insane. Amazingly bizarre but insane at the same time. Basically the story goes that this shop worker goes to see MSI live a few days prior, and then just goes completely insane in the shop. He kills loads of customers in the shop, in a variety of stupidly hilarious ways. It's a very funny video, dramatically over the top, and there are so many "moments" that I love in the video. Seriously, just watch the damn video! 

Here is the video for your enjoyment!
