The 2008 USC-Notre Dame football game at the LA Coliseum was not a great one for the Fighting Irish. They lost to USC 38-3
, en route to a disappointing 6-6 record for the season. Notre Dame had only 4 first downs and 91 total yards on offense (!!!).
But the game turned out to be a fateful one for the Band of the Fighting Irish
, Notre Dame's 167 year-old marching band. Playing a triumphant show at USC for the first time ever
, the band did a medley that included the OK Go song "Here it Goes Again," which became famous when the very fun low-budget video
of the rock band's members performing on treadmills went viral. The Notre Dame band's performance that day
included the marching band making two gigantic treadmills on the field, and band members reenacting some of the video's moves. Little did they know that this would lead to their star turn in a music video. [more inside]

Russell Mulcahy is best known for directing Highlander
(as well as its...less-popular
...sequel) and is currently doing a Teen Wolf
series for MTV. But speaking of MTV, he got his start doing music videos. A lot
of music videos. In fact, if you remember a video from the early days of MTV, it's probably one of Mulcahy's. [more inside]

I want my MTV.
MTV is now mostly reality, titillation TV, rarely showing music videos anymore. YouTube fills the void somewhat, but sometimes you want to just sit back and let someone else take care of the programming. MusicPlusTV is sort of like the old MTV, but they stream to your computer instead of to your TV.
