Few things are as universally-loved as the LEGO brand and its toy blocks. While not everyone loves metal, the genre can only be more endearing when combined with LEGO blocks. The White Stripes’ award-winning music video for “Fell In Love With A Girl” — as directed by Michel Gondry — was instrumental in reminding people that block-building goes well with a rock beat. In celebration of the harder roots of PureGrainAudio — and its recent acquisition of BrokenAmp.com — below are 5 music videos which perfectly integrate metal and LEGO for maximum fun.
01. Ben Blutzukker – “Riptide”

– Recorded for the LEGO Club Music series, “LEGO, Let’s Go!” features Jason Maas of the hardcore band Defeater.
03. Claudi Mogensen – “The Beast In Me”
