Very rarely do music videos end up being so powerful. Back in 80’s and early 90’s, fans used to buy CDs to enjoy music videos. That impact has decreased significantly since in digital realm, the strength of the video is measured by the number of views on YouTube and on other platforms. It was on a different level back then.

Here are 7 of the most influential music videos of all time.

  1. 1 Thriller - by Michael Jackson

    "Thriller" by "King of Pop" Michael Jackson is an epic 14-minute long video released on December 2, 1983 that revolves around zombies and werewolf as the main theme.

  1. The content is good , topic is great ,and clarity is fine but you should have done some editing in the pictures which are blur and old.

    1. Thanks for the comment. I appreciate that. Well, some of them were the albums from 1960-1980’s so it’s typically hard to get an HD image since they haven’t captured in HD in the first place. Also editing a low-quality image would ruin down the image even further. So I collected, attached the best ones available out there.

  2. Thank you for this post. I didn’t know about most of the music videos in this list. I know it’s really tough to select only 7 videos as there are so many legendary artists and their timeless creations all across the globe.. You have done a great job by keeping songs of all genres in the list. I think creations of linkin park and some hiphop artists like Eminem and Tupac also comes in the same line with these classic superhits.

    1. Hi, Glad you liked the post and the information that I had convey. Also thanks for your compliment. It is true that artists like Eminem and Tupac were legends in their genre, but here we are showcasing the Most Influential Music videos of all time. So, it not just audio songs but Video songs that changed the scale. 🙂
