Music Videos That Don't Suck, Vol. 16

Because all MTV airs is lactating teens and internet dating gone wrong, I've taken the responsibility upon myself to present to you, the reader, worthwhile music videos to watch. This installment features "Mercy" by the Dave Matthews Band, their first single off of their latest #1 album Away From The World.  The video is made up almost entirely of DIY submissions from the more than 14,000 fans across the globe who responded to an e-mail sent out by the band asking for fan contributions in mid-July. Mercy was released with the intention of spreading awareness to National Voter Registration Day, and the song boasts the message that "one by one we can turn it around." It's a beautiful music video for a beautiful song that is sure to make you hit your daily quota of goose bumps.

DMB kicks off their fall tour this Friday at the IZOD Center in East Rutherford, NJ. The band will be donating $1 million dollars from that show to Superstorm Sandy relief efforts.
