Steampunk Sunday: Music Videos

I talked about Abney Park in one of my first Steampunk Sunday posts and featured one of their music videos. While I still love that video, and Abney Park, I wanted to show some videos that had a Steampunk feel while the music they're for isn't necessarily Steampunk.

I'll start with The Dresden Dolls 'Coin-Operated Boy'

This video is very close to what the actual song is about and is only mildly Steampunk. I still love it. I especially love Amanda Palmer's eyebrows in the close-up shots.

This next one is Panic! At the Disco's 'The Ballad of Mona Lisa'

The song itself is definitely not Steampunk but the video is so very Steampunk. I love the net blaster and the microphone, especially.

To be honest, I always get so distracted by the next video that I don't listen to the song. I'll have to figure out what it's about one of these days. It's "Eye of the Storm" by Lovett

This is so beautiful, I'm not even sure the music is important.

So, what are your favorite Steampunk videos? Leave me links in the comments! And, as always, if you have a Steampunk collection you want me to feature, drop me a line!


  1. Now I'm thinking about writing an article about steampunking your D and D. Nice finds on these videos.

  2. Is this the same Amanda Plamer that is marrried to Neil Himself? or am I thinking of someone else?

    1. nope, that's the correct one. Well done. :-)
