Beyonce Baseball Bat

It may not even be December, but the ‘Best of 2016′ music lists keep coming. Pitchfork has put one out for the 25 Best Music Videos of 2016. It includes Rihanna and Drake‘s NSFW “Work” video, PUP‘s latest video to star Finn Wolfhard from Stranger Things, the Aziz Ansari and Eric Wareheim version of Kanye West‘s “Famous” video (not the naked mannequin video), David Bowie‘s creepy “Lazarus” video, the entirety of Beyonce‘s visual album Lemonade, and more.

Check out the full list below, and read their commentary here.

And speaking of Pitchfork, tickets are on holiday presale today for the 2017 Pitchfork Music Festival.
