Tribute: Top Three Ronnie James Dio Videos Of All Time
Dio liked bike messengers before hipsters made that job cool. Egyptian costumes, kitschy devils, the requisite metal rainbow riff -- everything about this brings me back to my childhood.
2. "Rock N' Roll Children"
This song holds a special place in Dio's iconography because it shows how he made metal seem safe and not scary. Less devilish, more after-school programming, Dio knew how to use music videos the way Michael Jackson did.
3. "Rainbow in the Dark"
There's another version of this song where Dio sounds gallant and slightly goofy (watch it here), but this one is all pomp and glory.
