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]

is a tumblr page put together by a fan of the long running MTV alt-rock show, with links to dozens (at least) of videos from the show's heyday. There's no search nor sort that I could find, but the site makes for fun browsing for fans of that particular musical era. [more inside]

The video MTV doesn't want you to see [.asx. file]
: Apparently the new Foo Fighters video is just too risque for the cutting edge
entertainment channel (~pffft). This brief NYpost article
has more. Either way, it's hilarious. It co-stars Jack Black, which is good enough for me. "Let's put the hammer down!"

Watching MTV for 24 hours straight so you don't have to.
Michael Daddino is a brave man, especially since his marathon's happening during MTV's bikini-heavy, brain-light summer programming. Will his senses blur until he has visions of Christina Aguilera singing "We're Not Gonna Take It"> Will he break stuff after one too many re-airings of the latest Staind video? Tune in to "The Pornography of Semiotics" throughout the day and find out. (This special is part of the relaunch of Freaky Trigger
, one of the few places on the Web where the music writing doesn't, you know, suck.)

Ever since MTV stopped playing videos, I find that I rarely even glance at it while channel surfing. But I do miss seeing amusing and creative videos. Luckily, Launch.com runs musicvideos.com
, which offers a couple thousand streaming videos to choose from. The 300k versions are pretty good. The Foo Fighters' "Learn to Fly
" is just great.
