If you like the ghetto side of a city these videos are great!

I agree. In rereading the thread title one has to wonder about the "best rep" aspects of many of these picks.

Alright. Taking this out of the hood and across the pond...

The English band Blur, who had their heydey in the 90's, had some videos that I saw late night on MTV because even as a kid, I was an insomniac, which started a lifelong love with London:


Blur - Bang - YouTube


Blur - For Tomorrow - YouTube

And although Bush really took a dump after this album, this song was pretty awesome, and the video came out right before I went to London for the first time... super-raw, off-tint VHS footage of London from a motorcycle... the general image from it has always stuck with me.

Last time I went, I rented a Polo... next time I go, maybe I'll rent a Ducati

So, this thread taught me two things:

1. Rap = ghetto
2. A music video filled with people enjoying themselves and bothering no one somehow makes an entire city look like a "toilet".

Macklemore - the boy loves his Seattle! And before you dismiss it as "ghetto" or "thug," listen to the words.

The points of a few of these vids flew over some poster's heads.

Chicago by boat: A timelapse journey - YouTube

Not a music video, but time lapse set to NIN, so really you can't lose.

Most posters here are considerably closed-minded, so I can't even say I'm surprised.

Kind of a goofy video but has some great shots of LA
