Michael Bay
Divinyls - "I Touch Myself"


Michel Gondry
Sinead O'Connor - "Fire on Babylon"

I was going to mention Michael Bay's work on "I'd Lie For You (And That's the Truth)."

John Hillcoat has INXS, Placebo, Nick Cave, Muse, Maroon 5, Bush, Bob Dylan all on his resume. Not too shabby.

One that really surprised me to learn was Mary Lambert (she of Pet Sematary & Halloweentown II fame). She also did videos for Mick Jagger, Boz Scaggs, Sting, and Lionel Richie.

Madonna - "Material Girl"


Janet Jackson - "Nasty"

Obligatory Rob Zombie mention, who used all of his tricks in House of 1000 Corpses.

Gus Van Sant was already an established filmmaker before he directed those music videos

He was sort of known thanks to Drug Store Cowboy and My Own Private Idaho but not nearly on a national level like he'd arguably be later on. He produced Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, Kids, and Psycho from 1993-1998 while directing Good Will Hunting in 1997.
