    All right, I'm really pissed. Why the hell is Right Now not on the list of the 100 greatest videos of all-time? Come on!! [img]smilies/mad.gif[/img] It's been voted one of the best videos of the 90's but it gets no mention in VH1's list. Any possible reason?

    I was wondering that one too. It's probably (IMHO) the best VH video right up there with Hot For Teacher.

    Then again, maybe they're biased because the only "sung" words in the entire video are "by a fraction." [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img]

    I wonder how much politics plays a part in these decisions? Don't labels and artists (managers) try to get their videos on these type of lists?

    VH doesn't seem like the type of group who would bother doing any of that (if they even have management currently that could do it).

    Yeah, I was wondering that as well because I didn't see the whole list. I was pleasently surprised to see Hot For Teacher in there as well as Jump, but to leave off Right Now is just dumb. It is definately one of the best videos of all time. IMO Right Now is Van Halen's best video of all time. The concept was new, it was very artistic, it sent a message and it went along with the song quite well. VH1 made a mistake there.
