Best TV Clips 2000-2009: Part Three

The decade-end feature concludes tonight with various amazing music clips from TV. "Best TV Clips" are able to say enough that it's not really necessary to post any "albums of the decade" or anything along those lines.. So this is gonna do it for the Taste My Kids decade-end wrap-up.

Honorable mentions go out to pregnant M.I.A. pictured here at the Grammy Awards in February 2009, and bleeding Lady GaGa pictured here at the VMA's in August 2009, neither of which were available to post as videos here, sadly.

Radiohead "The National Anthem" on SNL (October 14, 2000)
I could only find a clip for this on some Japanese video hosting place. Just a warning, if you happen to press "pause" mid-video it shows you an ad for Hewlett-Packard. This is the future, people.

at.the.drive.in "Quarantine" on Channel V (March 27, 2001)

...And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead "Relative Ways" on Letterman (June 20, 2002)
This is mostly noteworthy since they are possibly the only band to give Letterman the finger to his face prior to leaving the stage.

Andrew WK "Medley: "Tear It Up," "Party Hard," "Ready To Die" on Spike TV Video Game Awards (December 4, 2003)
Easy #1 for best TV performance of the decade. We're a better world because of AWK.

The Arcade Fire "Neighborhood #2 (Laika)" on Conan (February 2, 2005)
No Youtube links, but here's the video on Daily Motion.

System Of A Down "B.Y.O.B." on SNL (May 7, 2005)
Mostly noteworthy since the guitar player screamed "FUCK YOU!" on uncensored network TV. I guess SNL is live afterall. ("BYOB" was not able to be found for stream anywhere online, but some German site has "Aerials" up, which is better than nothing.)

Dinosaur Jr "Forget The Swan" on The Henry Rollins Show (June 24, 2006)

Slayer "Disciple" on The Henry Rollins Show (July 29, 2006)

TV On The Radio "Wolf Like Me" on Letterman (September 12, 2006)
