Friday Night Videos: Paint it Black

In "honor" of Black Friday here are some of my favorite songs/videos about black.

At least make an effort to stop at your FLGS this weekend.

"Paint it Black" by the Rolling Stones takes us all the way back to 1966.  I will contend that this is the first "Goth" song recorded.

"Black Dog" by Led Zeppelin

"Back in Black" by AC/DC

"Black Velvet" by Alannah Myles.  Alannah Myles was the hottest thing on MTV for a while. She still is.

"Black" by Pearl Jam. Pearl Jam was the biggest thing in the 90s. This is either one of their most iconic performances or one of their most self-indulgent.  Either way cool song.

"Black Sunshine" by White Zombie. I do enjoy some White Zombie.

"Black Hole Sun" by Soundgarden.

"Blue on Black" by Kenny Wayne Sheppard

And of course no discussion of black is complete without "Let's Make the Water Turn Black" by Frank Zappa & the Mothers of Invention
