The ’90s represented some of the highest and lowest points in music history. There was innovation that changed the industry forever, as well as some experimentation that should have never been touched in the first place. One thing that’s for certain is there were some some amazing music videos throughout the decade. So many songs that probably would have been forgotten have become legendary because of an extraordinary video. Much of that is to the credit of Spike Jonze, who became the go-to video director during the 90s. Here is a look at the 40 great music videos of the decade.
