This one is actually pretty interesting. The video chronicles the journey of Ariana Grande's butt as it makes its way through post-apocalyptic crowds and structures. The butt defends itself against attacks from wizards, and emerges from the depths of horror to witness a meteor strike that kills it. It's goddamn beautiful.
With a description like that, how could I not watch? You really sold it! And I was not disappointed. Thank God the butt raged against the dying of the light as long as it possibly could.

The music was insipid, but next time I'll just watch it with the audio off and a perky Hot Chip track in its place. Or perhaps something heavier.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKxPzkafpKs
I recommend starting ABR 5 seconds into the Ariana Grande song.
There are several thousand nearly complete viral genomes integrated into the human genome, most now inert or missing a crucial gene. These account for 1.3% of the entire genome. That may not sound like much, but 'proper' genes account for only 3%. If you think being descended from apes is bad for your self-esteem, then get used to the idea that you are also descended from viruses.

Do you have anything instrumental without the growling? I can tolerate it with Pantera but usually can't stand it.

You can start Celldweller at 0:09. It's nearly perfect.

Cole Rolland ft. Lauren Babic - Every Time We Touch (orig. Cascada)

Hardcore cover. This is the shixta.

They also do a pretty vanilla covers of Misery Business and Stay The Night.

One of the funniest fights I've ever seen.

About 4 mins.

An oldster song with great philosophical appeal, even today (IMHO):
