Music Videos

If there are two things in this world that go together better than great cars and great music, please tell us--because really, we're hard-pressed thinking of a better combination. But we aren't just talking about your usual stuck-in-traffic or road-trip playlist here. This type of collaboration stretches well beyond that.

Cars have been in music videos for as long as we can remember--whether it's a bunch of low-riders bouncing up and down in a rap video, or an American muscle car speeding through the desert to the tune of a guitar riff. They span across all musical genres. Everyone, including our favorite musicians, just really loves cars.

Here, we've compiled a list of 10 of our favorite music videos that feature cars. By the way, if you notice that this list doesn't contain a lot of rap videos, it's because we want to keep it as safe for work as possible. Because in some cases, cars aren't the only things bouncing up and down in the world of hip-hop.

Enjoy these videos!

'Stylo' by Gorillaz. We're not sure what we love more about this video--the sick beat or the bullet-riddled Camaro speeding through the desert. The Bruce Willis cameo is pretty cool, too. One question we'd like answered is what exactly Murdoc, 2D and Noodle did to piss him off.

'Cosmic Girl' by Jamiroquai. If you don't know who Jay Kay is, let us enlighten you. He's the lead singer of a popular English acid-jazz band, and one of the most avid car nuts in the music industry. The Ferrari F40, the Lamborghini Diablo and the Ferrari F355 seen in the video are from his personal collection. We're guessing Jay is one very happy dude.

'Bad Girls' by M.I.A. Aside from the sick car stunts, awesome visuals and skilled drivers, the music video also tackles the subject of women's rights in the Middle East, where some regions prohibit women from driving.

'Supreme' by Robbie Williams. Racing fans are going to love this video. Its official title is 'Gentleman Racers' and it is the singer's ode to English F1 driver Jackie Stewart. Robbie plays Bob Williams, a fictitious driver competing for the F1 championship.

'Zerotonine' by Junkie XL. There's something unusually therapeutic about the combination of violins in the track and the images of vehicles burning rubber in the video. Speed plus classical instruments is a recipe not many would have thought could work.

'We'll Be Coming Back' by Calvin Harris. We can forgive director Saman Kesh for the corny plot only because the video features a 1973 Porsche 911 T, a Ferrari 512 BB and a Yamaha YZF-R1 motorbike. We have to give him props for the exciting passenger-seat angles as well.

'White Knuckle Ride' by Jamiroquai. Yes, we know we've already included one Jamiroquai video on this list. But this Porsche Carrera RS and Robinson R44 helicopter desert chase is just too awesome to leave off the roster. By the way, Jay Kay owns the chopper. We seriously envy this guy.

'Needing/Getting' by OK Go. Without a doubt the most creative entry on this list. The band is known for its innovative and quirky music videos, so you can be sure this is something no one's done before. If you've ever wanted to see a car used as a musical instrument, this video is for you.

'Show Me How To Live' by Audioslave. If there's anything immediately apparent with this list, it's that fast cars, good music and desert scenery go very well together. This music video has it all--an epic police-car chase, a 1970 Dodge Challenger and an explosive ending.

'My Favourite Game' by The Cardigans. Ignore the horribly done fake tattoo and you've got another well-done desert sequence. The song was featured in the Gran Turismo 2 video game so you know it has an appropriate tune. The video was shot in the Mojave Desert, and features a Cadillac Eldorado convertible.
