If MTV's 30 second video clips of Beyonce and Britney don't do it for you anymore, the Directors Label is here to help. Out to showcase music videos as the works of art they truly are, the Directors Label has released three volumes dedicated to three of the genre's best directors -- Spike Jonze, Chris Cunningham and Michael Gondry.

The three-volume set showcases some of the best video music work since MTV went on the air. Videos from the set include classics like Weezer's "Buddy Holly," the Beastie Boys' "Sabotage" and the Foo Fighter's "Everlong." And that's only scratching the surface.

The best features on the discs are the behind-the-scenes looks that each director provides. Some of the featured acts -- such as P. Diddy and Christopher Walken -- lend their insights to commentary tracks. In addition to that, documentaries and rare works from each director are included, as well as a book of photographs, artwork and interviews.

Music DVDs haven't been prevalent since the format burst onto the marketplace, but with the Directors Label series now in effect (with a rumored fourth volume from Marc Romanek in the works), music videos may soon be rivaling feature-length films in sales at Best Buys and Blockbusters across the nation.
