What’s a hit song without a killer video?

In honour of Much’s 30th anniversary, the fine folks over there combed through the annals of music-video history to round up the 100 most epic, most mind-blowing, most etched-in-our-collective-memories-forever music videos of all time. (You should really check it out.)

And wouldn’t you know: We spied some homegrown talent in there amongst the Kings of Pop and Queen Beys. Here are the Top 10 Canadian music videos that made the cut, from pretty freakin’ great to really freakin’ great:

10. “Feeling Good,” The Sheepdogs

Fun fact: The entire video is set in 1:6 scale including the band dolls, machinery props and military-inspired vehicles.

9. “River,” The Belle Game

Fun fact: It won the 2014 Prism Prize Audience Award. Oh là là.

8. “Bridge To Nowhere,” Sam Roberts

Fun fact: In 2007, “Bridge To Nowhere” won Video of the Year at the Junos.

7. “We Exist,” Arcade Fire

Fun fact: The end of the video was shot live at hipster haven Coachella.

6. “The Northern,” Alexisonfire

Sad fact: The big albino boa passed away late last year.

5. “Astounded,” Bran Van 3000 f. Curtis Mayfield

Fun fact: This song went to No. 1 in Belgium. (Random, right?)

4. “Safety Dance,” Men Without Hats

Fun fact: The inspiration for the song? The lead singer was kicked out of a club for pogo-ing.

3. “1234,” Feist

Fun fact: The song is Feist’s most successful single to date. Remember those colourful iPod commercials where it played in the background?

2. “Ironic,” Alanis Morissette

Fun fact: The sweet car Alanis drives is a Lincoln Continental Mark V. Cool, eh?

1. “Afterlife,” Arcade Fire

Fun fact: Directed by a Canadian, this video won the 2014 Prism Prize. Go Canada!
