Musical Monday: 5x fight, Fight, FIGHT!

Make love, not war. And if you really, really don't like the other one, just do a dance off. These fella's are certainly good at that. These video's have some of the best choreographs out there to show us who's boss.

Black Eyed Peas - Pump It

There will never be any group that does so much to make sure everyone know they are Cool, than the Black Eyed Peas. Maybe they are, maybe they aren't. But their music sounds good (it isn't good, but it sounds good) and this video is so ridiculous it could overpower a Boggart, and thus is amazing. 

Michael Jackson - Beat it

Dance, don't fight. This seems to be the story of this bad ass video. Michael certainly knew how to be Cool. And the song actually is good. So I'll just let you enjoy it.

Run DMC - It;s like that

I used to say I like this song for it's video. But actually, I have always loved this song, for the song. It was the time that break-dancing wasn't something everyone could do. And where your opponents would stand still and wait for you to kick them. The time in witch bald black men weren't intimidating on their own, and those huge glasses weren't retro or hip, but just Cool. Huh!

Christina Aguilera ft. Lil' Kim - Can't Hold Us Down

There is something very wrong with this video. Maybe it's Xtina pretending to be bad-ass ghetto girl. Maybe it's that split second Lil' Kim comes around, being fully dressed, before ripping her clothes off and showing her true cheeks, face But it is probably two whores slutty girls singing how strange it is that "The guy gets all the glory, the more he can score/ While the girl can do the same and yet you call her a whore". I always found they turned it around wrong, I don't like the whole scoring girls business.
That being sad, the song is catchy and one of Christina's best period. The other girls in the video are real with all their faults, and there is something very gratifying about girls putting guys in their place.

Beyoncé - Run The World (Girls)

You're with a bunch of tough bitches. And you're apparently making so much trouble, you know - having a lion by your side and such, that the riot police is coming your way. What do you do? Beyconé decides to dance to show them who's boss. Because she's a girl. And because she's got moves. And if you live in music-video land, it actually works.
