I don't think they are as relevant as they once were. What is your opinion

I still think the are viable promotion tools. What I don't like about them is they often portray something totally different than what the actual song is about. So people watch the video, and they assume what the video is about is what the song is about. Not the case. I love music videos, but sometimes if they do something totally different than the lyrics I get annoyed.

And considering the lack of videos on CMT and even on GAC now, It's hard for people to see them without seeking them out on YouTube.

I don't think they matter anymore to most fans. I used to watch music videos for hours and I loved them! It was better than watching television shows for me because I loved music so much. I still do but I don't like new music anymore, so it's pointless. Music videos have gotten less about the song and more about promoting looks. Past videos had meaning, and a lot of artists still put a lot of effort into their videos, but the most popular artists just don't. If it's too theatrical I could care less.
I support music videos that genuinely enhance the meaning and quality of the song.
My personal favorites, which I thought enhanced the song and portrayed the meaning flawlessly. These videos served a purpose and helped understand the deeper meaning behind the song. Simplicity speaks volumes when it comes to music videos for me:

Emerson Drive - Moments


Darren Hayes - Darkness


The Verve - Bittersweet Symphony
