100 greatest rock moments (youtube)
Fredrik Strage is a really good culture journalist in Stockholm newspaper "DN". In their online edition he writes a blog on the theme "The 100 best rock moments on Youtube". Unfortunately for you he writes in Swedish, but you can still check out the clips. Until now he got until #26. Seems some of the older links have gone offline.
Some of the clips are:
#26 http://pastan.nu/bloggen/inlagg/298 Brian Wilson (Beach Boys) "surfs". Basically a clip from Saturday night live, where two police offers drag Brian out to actually go surfing.
#28 http://pastan.nu/bloggen/inlagg/275 "Dead gets a guinea pig". Basically a school-made documentary about the Norwegian/Swedish band Mayhem and their infamous band member "Dead", among others. Dead used to collect dead animals to keep in his room, dig down his clothes to make them rot before wearing them on stage, putting pig heads on stage, cutting himself and so on. Before one of their albums was released, he shot his head off with a shotgun, which band vocalist Euronymous thought was funny as he took photos of Dead's butchered head, and this photo was later selected as the cover of the album. Euronymous was later murdered by their temporary basist Count Grishnack, who is currently serving 20 years for that and/or other murders (he also burnt some churches in Norway, so I'm not sure for what he's serving time now actually).
The documentary is probably pretty boring though if you can't understand Swedish. :-P
#35 http://pastan.nu/bloggen/inlagg/188 The Beatles makes Hitler salutations on a visit in Australia. Deutschland über Alles...
#43 http://pastan.nu/bloggen/inlagg/67 A young Jim Mirrison (the Doors) applies for university.
#44 http://pastan.nu/bloggen/inlagg/66 A young Pete Doherty is asked about what he thinks about Oasis, right before the release of "Be here now".
There's also a link to the clip where a guard at a live gig gets pissed off at Kurt Cobain and attacks him...
