Best Videos Of The Past 15 Years: The VMAs Playlist

Relive the best music videos of the past 15 years with our VMAs playlist...


The 2013 MTV Video Music Awards (better known as the VMAs) are taking place Sunday, August 25th, and with this year being the award show's 30th anniversary, all the stops are sure to be pulled out. From all the scheduled performers and nominees, plus a rumor that N' Sync will reunite at the show, this could be the biggest VMAs that has ever gone down. Which is why we decided to take a look back, all the way to 1998, to see the winners of the most coveted award the show has to offer: Video Of The Year.

The nominees for 2013 (Macklemore, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift, Robin Thicke, and Justin Timberlake) won't be revealed until Sunday, but take a step back in time as we revisit the songs whose videos were winners from 2012 to 1998 with our Spotify playlist:
