The Killers, Beastie Boys, and more get music video HD makeovers

You ever find your self going down the ol’ music video worm hole watching all those clips from your favorites artists in the 80’s, 90’s. and 00’s, but you get this feeling the footage has not aged well when you are conditioned to clear high-definition on current TV and movies? Yeah well you are not alone in that.  Consequence of Sound reported this week that YouTube and Universal Music have begun an initiative to digital re-master a LOT music videos. The first batch of 100 polished up videos will come from a wide range of artists including the Killers, Billy Idol, and many many more.

The new project started with the Spike Jonze directed classic from Beastie Boys ‘Sabotage’ with an HD makeover for this kick-ass jam. The video which was released in 1994 now looks more vivid with all of cops-on-the-chase action in it’s new remastered version.
