Digging the Virtual Crates: Faith No More

While we anticpate Pete’s no doubt exhaustive coverage of the Austin City Limits festival (and the trip home) I thought I’d dig back in the virtual crates to deliver some video-gasmic love for the brilliant Faith No More. I was digging through my collection last week and stumbled across my copy of This Is It: The Best of Faith No More (Amazon | iTunes) and was amazed at how kind time has been to these tunes and furthermore how well they’ve aged. From “We Care a Lot” through the flopping fish right up to “Ashes to Ashes” I actually ended up digging out my copies of the rest of their discography (I have to pick up Album of the Year) and spending some quality time getting reaquainted.

Faith No More – We Care a Lot (Video)

The quality of the video really sucks, but it’s such a classic I had to include it here.

Faith No More – Epic (Video)

The one that got everyone hooked.

Faith No More – Midlife Crisis (Video)

The entire Angel Dust record is a classic.

Faith No More – Easy (Video)

Personally, I might actually like this version better than the original.

Bonus!!

I’d be completely remiss if I did not include at least one Mr. Bungle performance.
