The Top 5 Prom-Themed Music Videos

Prom looks so much cooler when it's in a music video—there's no puking or crying or boutonniere stabbings. Check out the coolest music video proms we wish we got invited to

1 / 5

Taylor Swift, "You Belong With Me"

Poor Taylor Swift. What's a girl to do when her crush is in love with her arch nemesis (who is actually just her in a brown wig)? Bust into the prom wearing a beautiful gown and tell that sucker you're in love with him like Swift did in "You Belong With Me"! Victory is yours!

Side note: As we all learned in She's All That, the girl never gets the guy with her glasses. Lose the spex, ladies. He's all yours.

2 / 5

Fall Out Boy, "Dance, Dance"

Okay, so Fall Out Boy's "Dance, Dance" technically takes place at Homecoming, but it's such a classic high school dance video that we couldn't leave it off the list. Plus 5,000 bonus points for Pete Wentz's dance moves.

3 / 5

Motley Crue, "Smokin' in the Boys Room"

Motley Crue just gets teenagers, man. Angst! Rebellion! Blue eye shadow! Their "Smokin' in the Boys Room" video features all of these things, plus a killer prom scene for which the Crue broke out their finest sequined bodysuits. We miss you, 1985.

4 / 5

Avril Lavigne, "Here's to Never Growing Up"

Avril Lavigne is so staunchly opposed to growing up that she will not leave high school. Literally. The future Mrs. Chad Kroeger made prom the setting for her "Here's to Never Growing Up" video, so just forget that she's 28 and about to be married for the second time. 

5 / 5

Diddy, "It's All About the Benjamins (Remix)"

When Diddy and his crew get a flat outside of a high school prom, the Bad Boy rapper and his friends take over the stage and give those kids the BEST. PROM/HIP-HOP RAVE. EVER. Diddy even smashes a guitar!
