proof that Beavis & Butthead were in fact tasteful visionaries of the mid-90's college rock scene

A special Christmas shopping inspired Top 10...

01. King Missile/ "Detachable Penis"
02. Beck/ "Pay No Mind" (Seven mary three, we've got whores in the city", "He's like one of those guys from the gifted class.")
03. MC 900 Ft. Jesus/ "If I Only Had a Brain"
04. Flaming Lips/ "She Don't Use Jelly"
05. Ween/ "Push th' Little Daisies"
06. That Dog/ "Old Timer"
07. Jon Spencer Blues Explosion/ "Dang"
08. Pavement/ "Cut Your Hair"
09. Whale/ "Hobo Humpin' Slobo Babe"
10. Gary Young/ "Plant Man" (if anyone has this, I've been looking for it forever- the song or the video)

So the other day Jay hits me with THIS LIST. It's a pretty decent collection of almost all of the musicians viewed by those cultural connoisseurs Beavis and Butthead during their remarkable run on MTV (back when they occasionally showed music videos and some fun cartoons). Recently a B&B DVD set surfaced consisting of forty episodes, hand-picked by series creator Mike Judge. It's not too shabby, but with one caveat- most of the music videos are not in the cut. Licensing issues have ruined a lot of TV-related DVD releases, most notably Tour of Duty (maybe this deserves its own list) and was a problem here as well. Anyway, a few remarkably did survive the editing process: Here they are: Matthew Sweet: Superdeformed, Pantera: This Love, Moist: Push, Deus: Suds & Soda, Grim Reaper: Fear No Evil, Monster Magnet: Negasonic Teenage Warhead, Korn: Blind, Catherine Wheel: Waydown, Beastie Boys: Pass the Mic, Wilco: Box Full of Letters, Hum: Stars.

Grim Reaper is to be experienced by the way! [Josh]
