The Five Best Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds videos


True fact of the day: Nick Cave's moustache once had a fight with Tom Selleck's and won.

While we can't actually check the veracity of the above, it's fair to say that Nick Cave has one of the most superb bits of facial hair we've ever seen. He's also a dab hand at singing and playing the guitar.

From solo stints and duets with Kylie, to his frontman status in Grinderman and Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, he's created musical and video gold [insert topical Olympics gag here].

Proof of his genius resides below. Plug in your headphones and have a listen.
