Oh, don't mind us: More music videos featuring NYC in the background

So I've been having fun with Alex at Flaming Pablum posting music videos featuring NYC as a backdrop. (He had some real blasts from the past for me: Biohazard! House of Pain!) Anyway, I started the other day with more cheesy fare, but am now getting into stuff that I like.

Sonic Youth, "Kool Thing"

Sonic Youth, "Do You Believe in Rapture?" (An ode to CBGB)

Railroad Jerk, "Rollerkoaster"

Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five, "The Message"

LOUSY quality video of King Missile, "Detachable Penis" (good shots of the old Kiev on Seventh Street and Second Avenue)

Joe Strummer and the Mescaleros, "Redemption Song" (Not that old, of course, but a lovely tribute)
