know your history...
Hey kiddies, this may not be the most exciting video of all time but check this out: the album was released in 1978 and MTV came on the airwaves for the first time in 1981. They released this video when very few bands had videos and worse yet, there wasn't a place to air them. Back then, videos were barely an afterthought. Bands like the Police actually cared more about the music than the image. It's ashame that most of you were born into the post-MTV world and can't remember when bands wrote and performed their own music.
Evolution of Video
Music videos in the early 80s was a pioneering feat. It started with bands like these which paved the evolutionary path to music videos. I am surprised they even had footage of some of these great bands. The Police are awesome and the videos are fun to watch. ;)
Give Me a Break! This the Police we're talking about. I don't care if Sting is hitting his head against a wall! The Police are one of the best bands of all time and you're saying this music video is bad?
Formed: 1977 in London, England
