The video for the Buggles' classic one-shot, about how the rise of television (and, by extension, music videos) hurt the careers of those performers whose looks would not translate well to the new medium.
Pat Benatar plays a woman who runs away from her family to become a dancer in a club. However, when she finds out the owner of the club is more than what he seems, she convinces the other dancers to rise up against him with her.
The video begins with a disobedient son playing Twisted Sister songs in his bedroom while the rest of the family is eating dinner. The father goes to the boy's bedroom and scolds his son for being interested only in his guitar and Twisted Sister music. At the last line of the father's overlong speech, he says "What do you want to do with your life?", to which the son replies "I Wanna Rock!" with a voice strikingly similar to that of director Marty Callner, after which he strums his guitar and causes a blast so powerful it knocks the father out of a nearby window. The boy then transforms into Snider and the music begins.Written by
