I don't know who any of these artists are. I guess that means that I must be getting old.



CapedGodot said:

Let me know when Two Door Cinema Club releases one. I'm out til then. Also, if you want free music, there's this wonderful thing called YouTube.



Yrreiht said:

@Kholdstare ANYTHING but dubstep O.o
anyway... can they release good music once in a while? like something other than pop or rap? The only reason i even keep nintendo video is for animations like the kid icarus ones or the kirby ones, apart from that there isnt anything interesting... and it takes soooo much space on the SD card



Marakuto said:

Lucky the didn't put Lil Wayne who only talks about his ex girls and how much poop he done in the toilet. >_>



DogNut327 said:

Other than Ok Go, who was the first video on NV I think, I haven't heard of them.



Chobi said:

Dammit, looks like the kid icarus anime videos will no longer be up thanks to these new videos.
@Marakuto LMAO!!!! xD



RR529 said:

And here I thought Nintendo Video couldn't get any more useless. What's with this crap? I'd rather have them remix some classic video game tunes, and make cool 3D videos to go along with them (heck, I'd rather have the Blue Man Group back).

Well, I guess the 3D Kid Icarus videos were awesome while they lasted. Wake me when Nintendo Video gets something interesting again. TBH, this wouldn't be too bad, but seriously, has anyone even heard of these bands?



WesFX said:

Most of these will be "converted 3D" I assume. I appreciate trying, but it looks so bizarre.



Drewroxsox said:

I like the B.O.B song and I'm excited about 80% of the songs to come.... The videos aren't that 3d, because they weren't created with 3d in mind :/



Savino said:

Ok go is fun to watch... But it is crappy as the rest....

No true music here.



Wintendo said:

@Koops3 no thanks...
@Cloudcult10 Phoenix ftw! I'd like to see them too.

As well as some Daft Punk, Foo Fighters and pretty much anything that's not 'LMFAO' 'Lil Wayne' 'Justin Bieber' 'Lady Gaga' or 'One Direction'...

And for those who don't know, it's Skrillex feat. The Doors, whom I'm sure most of you know. Does that make it better haha?



Birdman said:

I either don't like or don't care for the artists mentioned. I'll still wind up watching them anyway, most likely.



lanabanana said:

SKRILLEX!!!! They should put Paramore , Avril Lavigne , Katy Perry , and many more famous artists and bands... This is gonna be great as long as they don't put Justin Beiber and Rebecca Black... XD



Korbin64 said:

I used to listen to those bands, and then I discovered that all of them (with exception of OK Go)** are terrible. Gone are the days when people listened to talented artists.

**I was actually pretty impressed with The Rifle's Spiral by the Shins, by both the music video and the music.



HanuKwanzMasBif said:

I only care about Skrillex. Personally I prefer Monstercat's artists for my dubstep but his stuff is pretty good.



RantingThespian said:

Death Cab and Ok Go sound kewl. I am not a big Rap and modern R&B fan, so these first few I will pass on.

I wonder if DMB's first single off their upcoming album will be a featured 3D video . . . probably not, but one can dream.



TeeJay said:

Nooooooo! Now Nintendo Video is boring again. Well, at least we still have Palutena's Revolting Dinner Part 2 to look forward to.



McGruber said:

Really surprised to see Wale on this list, love him. Now if they would just put out a full fledged service...



MAB said:

Good music died when it got to the late 90's. kids these days with the hippin and a hoppin and the bleepin and a bloppin.



Shotgunryugan said:

I hate all the artist listed,it's free sure,but i'd rather take nothing over bad music...

Were are all the good artist like,Florence and The Machine,Kylie Minogue,Pixie Lott,Lilly Allen,The Cranberries,Aqua,Ke$ha,Adele,Britney Spears,La Roux,Katy Perry,Young The Giant,Lady Gaga(to some extent),Madonna,Linking Park,Green Day,Coldplay,Kate Miller Heidke,Adam Lambert,Maroon 5,P!nk,Avril Lavigne,Kelly Clarkson,Beyonce,etc...

I guess i just have different taste in music,but either way i have YouTube,Pandora and my music CD's if i feel like listening to good music




cheapogamer4life said:

^: the good artist cost to much for Ninty

Anyhow, I was genuinely surprised to see Artists that I have heard of before on my 3ds. The OK Go group was ok and the rest I've never heard of. As variety is what makes up the world I'm looking for to at least giving all the videos one play through in 3D. Go Ninty!



Korbin64 said:

I agree with MadAussieBloke, music started to decline after the 90's; but I don't think Nintendo will put on Metallica, Nirvana, Social Distortion, The Offspring, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bad Religion, Alice in Chains, Rise Against, Audioslave, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, Bush, Chevelle, Seether, Skillet (not Skrillex), Disturbed, Breaking Benjamin, Queen, Oingo Boingo, A7X, Pennywise, 311, Coldplay, 3 Doors Down, Three Days Grace, Social Distortion, Creed, Guns and Roses, Papa Roach, Pink Floyd, Sublime, The Eagles, and Weezer. They might put on Muse, but who really knows?



RantingThespian said:

@James I'm actually am a real musician. I own 6 guitars, a keyboard, tons of recording equipment, I can play bass and mandolin, I sing, I perform, and I write my own music.

Music is one of the most important things in my whole life.



Kage_88 said:

I've heard of OK Go...but I have no idea who any of those other artists are.

I suppose that's because I hate most of today's 'music'...sometimes I feel as though I was born 30 years too late...



-DL- said:

Skrillex is pretty much the only one here that fits into my musical tastes. Haven't seen it yet though; I've been skipping the other music videos.
