    On the top 40 hard rock vids, VH hit 11 with Right Now and I think 20 with Hot For Teacher.

    No offense to Sammy fans, but i think Hot for Teaher is a little more harder then Right Now. I like both songs, but it doesnt make sense in that order. if we were talkin most inspirational songs, then i would place Right Now before most any Roth era song (although Jump can really get me going sometimes)

    Yeah, HFT is better than RN. The RN video sucks, IMO.

    I can't believe Nirvana was at #5 and Metallica was #1. I thought Nirvana would take it, not that I think that's the case. If I had my way, "Pretty Woman" would be #1 and "Girls, Girls, Girls" would be #2, but I have a distorted sense of what's cool anyways...

    I thought Paul Gargano's comments were interesting. He said "Right now, VH wishes they never fired Sammy. Right now, the rest of us wish Dave was back."

    Yeah, that's about the smartest thing TV has said about VH in the past year. Sammy was cool and so was Dave! Even Gary gave us more than what we have now.

    I can't believe all 3 videos from 1984 aren't in their top 40.

    They totally dissed Panama and Jump.

    The video for Right Now is defintitely their greatest (most immitated also). What I want to know is..where the hell was pearl jams "do the evolution" video.

    Pearl Jam does videos again?

    Seriously though, while the HFT video is great fun, Right Now is probably the best video they've come up with on an artistic level, and I can understand why it would be listed higher up than HFT.

    Really? Oh Pretty Woman, in it's own weird sort of way, is creative. Cheesey for sure, but still good. Even Top of The World in the space theme is cool.

    Actually, I thought Top of the World, in it's execution, was one of the worst done VH videos...

    Too clunky.

    Kind of like "Feels So Good, but with 95% more space!"

    Since when does VH1 & Emptv know what good
    music or video's are??
    Pretty Woman was badass in the day,Ill
    2nd that.

    BTW, Nirvana?? Cmon not even-
    He's dead,lets make him a legend.
    In my mind Kurt isnt a Hendrix..
    A total of 3 hits? No way in my book
    As If.
    & thats a diss to the Living Legend,
    Eddie Van Halen!!!!!!!!!
    Video TV has no clue...
