Check them out, and don't forget to tune for our next installment of the countdown next Monday from 6-8 PM EST!

30. The Real Life, John Mellencamp, Lonesome Jubilee (1987)
This video is from Mellencamp's October 29, 2010 show in Bloomington, IN

29. Where the Streets Have No Name, U2, Joshua Tree (1987)
This video won the Grammy Award for Best Music Video in 1898 and is real footage of a U2 concert.

28. Thorn in My Pride, The Black Crowes, The Southern Harmony and Musical Companion (1992)

27. The Load Out/Stay, Jackson Browne, Running on Empty (1977)
This video was recorded for a BBC Special in London in 1978.

24. How Long, The Eagles, Long Road Out of Eden (2007)

23. Don't Come Around Here No More, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Southern Accents (1985)
