Seven of our favourite sport-themed music videos

What do you get when you combine sport and music? Well, some of the most passionate videos around, for one. We round up some of our favourites from the action-packed world of sport-themed music videos, because it’s Monday and we can.

Yellowcard are the latest rockers to channel their love of sports into a new music video, giving us a thick slice of Ice Hockey drama in this video for Crash The Gates.

Newcastle’s Boy Jumps Ship called in English Boxing Champ, Anthony ‘Babyface’ Nelson, to star in their  lastest video, Call To Arms. Ding, ding, ding!

Vampire Weekend‘s Giving Up The Gun features some seriously impressive cameos from Joe Jonas, Jake Gyllenhaal, Lil’ Jon and RZA of Wu-Tang Clan. Oh, and there’s a tennis theme. Amazing.

Slip ‘n Slide isn’t an Olympic sport, but Ben Howard proves it probably should be with this video for Keep Your Head Up.

Bombay Bicycle Club show the beauty in synchronised swimming with their video for Luna. Swoon.

Our calculations can’t confirm just how many times people tried to recreate Ok Go‘s treadmill antics on Here It Goes Again, but we know it was a lot.

Then there’s that time Sum 41 fans took over a diving centre, as the Canadian rockers put their own spin on the tricky sport.
