#3 [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Peter Gabriel[/lastfm]-“Sledgehammer” (1986)
You shouldn’t be shocked that the former [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Genesis[/lastfm] frontman would be on this list (foreshadowing). Gabriel was known for some unique videos during this time and “Sledgehammer” was the cream of the crop. This mix of stop-motion animation and claymation took home the 1987 Video of the Year award at the MTV VMAs. We here at Jack believe it was the dancing raw chickens that clinched him the award.
