We made it!! It has been a log journey, but we have finally arrived:
Here are the TOP TEN MUSIC VIDEOS EVER as chosen by the readers of Homicidols dot com via a long, convoluted process that has been covered in depth elsewhere.
As always, each MV is accompanied by commentary from one or more of the individuals who nominated it way back in May or June when we started this process and the Team. I’ll keep the pre-amble short though because what you really want to know is: WHO MADE THE TOP TEN?
It is the next-to last chapter in our countdown of the Top 50 alt, indie, and underground idol MVs ever as chosen by the Homicidols community, a group of music aficionados with impeccable taste as evidenced below.
Strangely, none of the videos that ranked 11 through 20 won a Best MV of the Year award, although one of the tunes did win Song of the Year. It also appears that I made an error last week in identifying “Hallellujah” by Shihatsu-machi Underground as our countdown’s most-nominated MV with four nods. It turns out that one of this week’s entries edged them out with five. As always, commentary from the nominating parties are included below. Some of them have more to say than others.
Welcome to the second installment in our countdown of the top 50 alt, indie and underground idol MVs of all time as chosen by our readers. The ten music videos featured this week mark the first appearance of some of the genre’s heaviest hitters and features three winners of Homicidols Best MV of the Year honors (and a couple of runner ups).
If you missed the first ten or just want a recap, here’s a convenient link: The Greatest Alt-Idol MVs of All Time #41 – 50. Or you can skip the review and jump right into where we left off in our countdown complete with commentary from our nominating readers and Team.
Welcome to the first in our series of Top Ten Favorite Idol Songs as identified by you, the readers of Homicidols. If you haven’t summitted your list yet, it’s not too late. Just complete this Google form and let us know your thoughts. We will be publishing a few each week until we run out.
First up we have Luna, also know as LunaGeek on Twitter and Discord where he is known for his enthusiasm for WWI experimental helmets and multiple YouTube channels. He’s an intriguing guy with a diversity of interests, so let’s see how that extends to his picks for favorite idol songs. Take it away Luna:Continue reading →
Hey there, Cal here. I’m Homicidols’ pin-up mascot, treasurer and I also lie for fun sometimes. I don’t normally write in first person so forgive me if I seem like a fish out of water. If you read the first entry in our personal top 10’s series, you’ll see Dae mention that I had this idea thinking it’ll be fun and it ended up being a little gruelling. He was 100% correct, I like too many songs to pick just 10! It’s like drawing blood from a stone, a really sexy stone with immaculate music taste.
When it comes to things like this, I prefer to separate things into different categories such as “music that has a personal meaning for me” or “music to touch the stove to” or “music that makes me want to run screaming into traffic.” I listen to a lot of idol songs, like a lotttttt, so in the end, I just ended up picking the best of the best from various criterias. So this list kind of ended up being a mix of the sentimental to the slappers. Please enjoy it.
We have reached the height of summer, that magical season when school’s out, parties are at the pool, blankets are on the beach and indelible memories are being made, each one set to a signature soundtrack destined to trigger nostalgic memories well into our sunset years (unless you’re reading this in Australia right now in which case, at least the snakes are hibernating ?). This seemed like the perfect time to ask Team Homicidols to put down the margaritas and fireworks for a second and share those songs that they’ve got on repeat in their summertime playlists.
Here are the songs that will forever come to define the dog days of 2022:
If you haven’t been keeping up with the news lately, this might come as a major shock: AKB48’s Kashiwagi Yuki (also known as Yukirin) joined every single WACK group at once! How do some people find the time, honestly.
It might make you feel old to think so far back, but remember how OGBiS and punk rock went together hand-in-hand? Not just the oh-so-fun visuals and their infamous destructive antics, but the music itself was exciting because back in those days, idols moshing to punk songs really was Brand-new. From their cover of the original Primal. by The Yellow Monkey to the musical and lyrical references from Stay Gold by Hi-STANDARD in I wish I was specIaL, BiS truly lived, breathed, ate and shat punk music. When BiS3 were auditioning, one of the conditions was that the members truly understood the method to the madness of OGBiS which, aside from “anything to sell,” was arguably embodying that cool, stupid fun punk style. So after a few years, here we are with a full BiS punk cover album!
