It seems like there was a distinctive style popular in the early days of the music video medium that featured the guys in the band just hanging out and being dudes, particularly when backstage and/or on tour. The songs in question are generally of the cheesy balladish sort.
Examples include Journey - "Faithfully
" and Mr Mister - "Kyrie
I am amused by watching these guys with goofy hair and really tight jeans strutting around and demonstrating their coolness. Please help me find more examples of this trope.
