Overused ideas

What do you do when you get an idea using an overused song? Like Nine Inch Nails, or Linkin Park... as an extreme example... o.o

Depending on how good the idea I think it is, I"ll continue with it, but if it really is just another "hey, pretty cool" I drop it. UNLESS it is like something REALLY worth holding on too.

A video can have overused anime/music and still get high orginality scores because it has a different concept. But some Ideas should be droped fast, for example Eva Chop action vids....

By all means, use whatever inspires you. I have been known to use some overused songs myself, but I've also used plenty no one's ever heard of before. It all depends on what I get motivated by. If I get inspired by a song/anime combination idea of mine; I end up making it because usually I can't get the idea out of my head.
I made a Final Fantasy video to Hanging By a Moment by Lifehouse; there are about five or six other videos with that same combination. I watched all of them before I wanted to make the video. I was kind of disappointed in most of them because there was so much feeling and deep meaning that I saw in the song, yet none of them seemed to really bring that out in the video. So when I was listening to the song later these ideas started popping into my head for a video that could bring that out. I had ideas no one else had had in their videos, so I decided to make it.

Most people liked it; the only bad part was that people gave me low originality marks :)

I tend to use overused anime; maily because most of the anime I watch is overused. And I can't easily get inspired to make a video to an anime I haven't seen.

So if you have some really creative ideas to go with your overused song, people will easily tolerate it; especially if it's a good video. If you make it and you know it's almost exactly like all the other Linkin Park and NIN videos out there, you don't have to release it. Just make it for yourself.

Use whatever inspires you, because you have to get inspired by something in order to make a good, meaningful video.

it's when a man and a woman love each other alot. and the man pulls his pants down, and begins to releive himself on his lover's face/chest.

Nine inch nails is overused?? that's news to me! On this site there are 50 videos, most of them broken, and if not broken then, well, not all that great. I think you're just prejudging your opinion because ermac made two nin music vids that happened to become really popular.

Aluminum made a nine inch nails video, Maboroshi made a nine inch nails video I believe. Yes NIN are overused, but if you've got a good concept go with it.
I've got to stop procrasturbating.

Am I the only one who doesn't give a fuck about the artist being overused? Sweet jesus people who cares. The artist is a concept. I care about the SONG being overused.

If linkin park had an awesome song that no ones heard of you damn right ide use it. Same thing with NIN. Its not like your audience is going to not download it "because omg this artist is used SOOO often".

If you have a unique song, then its fine. NIN has 17 assorted albums. Thats quite a bit of material to chose from. Or you could just be a choch and do a video with "closer"
