For the 30th anniversary of Dirt, Alice in Chains recently released behind-the-scenes footage from the set of “Them Bones” video. While taking sips from a juice box, Layne Staley does the opening screams over and over again, annoyed at how many takes he had to do. Unfortunately, he missed the first “ahhhh!” so Layne had to try again and again to get it right.

Ever wondered how Korn’s “Freak on a Leash” video came to be? Cameras captured the moment the concept of the video was explained to the group, animated children playing hopscotch, ball flying through frozen scenes, Korn playing in the dark room with bullet holes sending beams of light in all directions. “Think of it like an episode of The twilight zone“said one of the creators of the video.

Judas Priest’s video for “Painkiller” was actually shot in Los Angeles at the Department of Water and Power. The heartbreaking video was shot shortly after Priest’s subliminal message trial ended. Having won the case, a relieved Rob Halford and KK Downing joked about the experience, remarking that at least they had learned a bunch of important new words from sitting in the courtroom.
