I've been listening to a lot of my tapes and the radio recently data entry being the exciting thing that it is and I've been thinking some about the fact that there are quite a few songs that make me automatically think of certain fandoms specifically because music vids. Sometimes it might not have been a song used that I would have thought of automatically, but it was made into such a great vid that it just seemed to define the fandom for me. Does anyone have specific favorites? These are the ones I would choose to show someone who wanted some kind of music vid to explain a fandom to them. (Don't ask me who would need this. Maybe Devo dropped in.)
[other fandom recs snipped]PROS: Probably "Send the Marines"(MVD). I know a very good SAAB vid has been done to this, but I just think of Pros automatically when I think of this song. Also "Deteriorata" (DJ).
