Justice

I stumbled on to Justice from hearing a track on the July Burning Circle. They've got a lot of totally rad, really tight, bomb diggity shiznat. I really love these guys. They are from France, and won best video at the European MTV music awards in 2006, and then for a different video in 2007. Nominated for a grammy as well as lots of MTV music awards in 2008. My apologies if everyone else has already heard of them. If not, check it out...

First, start by listening to Justice's song Genesis (with video from Michael Jackson's Thriller)... I really wanted to embed this one, but it's disabled. Probably my favorite overall, but it's hard to compare because so much of their stuff is so different, but all very good:

Justice - Waters of Nazareth:

Another video of Waters of Nazareth someone made, with dancing poker chips... cool video, but unfortunately the sound quality really sucks... they must have turned it up too high or something:

Justice - New Jack (to a Michael Jackson montage--not sure what the connection is between Justice and Michael Jackson videos, but they both do seem to go well together):

Justice - DVNO, humorous song/video about 4 letters in gold:

Justice - Stress, this video is crazy intense/disturbing, but done very well and highly appropriate for the song:


Justice - D.A.N.C.E., winner of the 2007 European MTV award for best video; nominated for 2008 MTV award for best video as well as video of the year:

Justice - D.A.N.C.E., live on Jimmy Kimmel (each band member dressed up like a different famous musician from history; UPDATE/correction: the actual "band members" are just the 2 guys who turn on the radio, and the rest are impersonators):


My only complaint is that, Bad Religion has a much cooler symbol for their band than Justice does (compare: Bad Religion, Justice)

That video for Stress is really scary - are there really gangs like that in the French suburbs? Seems unlikely, but I guess it's the image people sometimes have.

D.A.N.C.E. is very French-sounding to me, like Daft Punk. And that is a neat idea for the video.

I was just browsing LJ and I found this entry. I just want to say, Justice is most *definitely* "bomb diggity"
