I'll always have a soft spot the other members of the Pretenders pointing to the word 'special' on a menu at the appropriate point of Brass In Pocket

EVERY. SINGLE. SONG in the "God Help the Girl" movie. (I'm a big B&S fan and have a pretty high tweeness tolerance, but my god, that movie was too much.)

Also kudos to Papa Roach for having that video for "Broken Home" where they actually break a home.

(particularly the bit where the lyrics are "breakthrough now" and a train breaks through (geddit?!) a wall with "NOW" spray painted on it)

And in case that wasn't subtle enough when they repeat the shot a second time they superimpose the face of a woman mouthing "NOW" on top of it.
