That video of Janis at Monterey Pop always gives me goosebumps. One of the greatest Rock moments ever put on film.

This is an 80s rock discussion fellas, there's a section below for 60s and 70s, aches, pains, etc. Just kidding love it all. But especially 80s hair metal and the 2nd British wave.

So other than 80's Aldo Nova in the background and the costuming, what does straight up 60's music vids have to do with them being better than a Danny MacAskill video?

We Can Do It In the Road ... better tunes and on road bikes. Whenever these videos come up I think of Martyn Ashton & his Road Bike Party series and the life changing accident. On Road Bike II, Danny MacAskill & Chris Akrigg help him complete the video

...some interesting bike & camera technical info as well as a full description of Martyn's accident and reaching out to competitor friends to help finish the video.

CCR was good. A bicycle video with a CCR song would be awesome.

80's rock might have mostly sucked, but 80's metal, on the other hand, was mostly excellent.

If you're referring to the "hair metal" bands, we might have a problem.

I agree, 99% of the 80s sucked musically. We saw The Wall, Moving Pictures. There was some pseudo-edgy-quasi-punk (Talking Heads and many others), the harder edged punk that lent itself to some of the 90s stuff that was a bit better than the previous decade delivered.
