RAGE ‘TOP 50 MUSIC VIDEOS OF 2011′ LIST

RAGE ‘TOP 50 MUSIC VIDEOS OF 2011′ LIST

Here’s (hopefully) one of the last “best of 2011″ lists you’ll read; but luckily, it’s a pretty good one.

Rage recently released their top 50 music video clips of the year, as voted by the public. No prizes for guessing who claimed the #1 spot (hint: body paint, Kiwi chick, artful nakedness). In a good local showing, Aussies make up around half of the list, with names like Boy & Bear, Washington, Ball Park Music and The Grates all among over 20 Australian talents on the list.

Some of Groupie’s fave clips of the year make it onto the Rage Top 50; who can forget Jake pashing that saucy nanna in Bluejuice’s ‘Act Yr Age,’ Johnny from Children Collide having his head brutally shaved in ‘Loveless,’ or Duck Sauce’s very gross, very NSFW clip for ‘Big Bad Wolf.’

Also scoring big love from Rage fans were Radiohead with ‘Lotus Flower’ (the original version, not the countless Thom Yorke dancing spoof videos that cropped up), Triple J ‘video of the year’ winners Hermitude with ‘Speak Of The Devil,’ Florence + The Machine, Lana Del Rey, Foster The People and – strangely, for the usually ‘indie’ focused Rage – chart-toppers including Adele, LMFAO and Altiyan Childs.

Check out the full list below; what do you think?
