10. Starfuckers, Inc.
I think my love for this video, and song in general, is based on principle. Trent released it to stiff it to the music industry, I think. The video is what it is, but I still love it. Enjoy some "Starsuckers."
This is a great song in general and the video is a good mixture of crazy. I remember seeing it for the first time when I was like 13 on the Closure VHS set. I prefer the live versions of "Wish" but this classic album version with the video is always good, too.
08. March of the Pigs
I put this at #8 simply because the video isn't anything special, but the song is. I would put the song a lot higher on the list, but the video is very simple.
This is a good one off Year Zero. I love the lyrics to the song and I think the video correlates perfectly with the theme of not only the song but of the album itself. I also love how they incorporated the music video into the Lights in the Sky tour.
06. The Perfect Drug
Great video and a great song. Simple as that. For some reason I can't find the original video on YouTube to link down below, but you can probably find it somewhere. It's definitely worth seeing. All that's on YouTube is remixes and RockBand clips.
[EDIT] I totally spaced the NIN Vimeo page. You can watch the official video here: http://vimeo.com/3612941
05. Down in It
This is another one that I remember from the Closure set and I always loved it. It might just be because I love the song (favorite off Pretty Hate Machine) but either way it is a good video. The story behind it is even better. You guys should Google that one.
This is one that is short and sweet... and awesome as shit.
03. Help Me I Am In Hell
Another that is pretty short and sweet. It is just amazing, though.
02. Happiness in Slavery
This is a close run for first place, but it still can't beat my first choice. This video is just incredible and it is almost impossible to find on YouTube so I can't link it below. I have no doubt you can find it on Google somewhere so I would suggest finding it and checking it out. Amazing song and a great video companion.
[EDIT] I totally spaced the NIN Vimeo page. You can watch the full, very NSFW, video here: http://vimeo.com/3556108
Yeah, yeah it's a given, right? I don't give a fuck. This is a great music video and I have loved it ever since I was a wee teenager. It is unmatched and no one will ever beat it. Simple as that.
