Before seeing this video on Beavis & Butthead way back in my youth, I'd only a passing acquaintance with the Beastie Boys. Did this put me on track!
Masterful direction and a matching of visual action to the music that's just sublime, all backed up with some hilariously well thought out costuming and makeup. It looks like everyone had a lot of fun making this.
The only other video that comes close for sheer artistic value (in this reviewers' humble opinion) is Aphex Twins' Come to Daddy. But I'd happily put Sabotage head to head against Come to Daddy any day of the week.
Definitely one of the best music videos of all time and certainly the only one I've ever bought on VHS. Do excuse me, I've gotta watch it again now...
