90s at 9 Beck's 'The New Pollution' Compared to The Beatles 'Tomorrow Never Knows'

The song didn't chart in the US, but the video won awards on the MTV VMAs.

Beck released "The New Pollution" as a single from the Odelay album in 1996. The song only charted in Iceland, but the video won Best Direction, Best Choreography and Best Art Direction at the 1997 MTV Video Music Awards.
This song has been compared to The Beatles "Tomorrow Never Knows" by critics because of the sampled tape loop and repeating drum beat. The instrumentals are similar between the two songs as well. That may have helped inspire the 60's themed music video.

Nikki "Nikilicious" Montgomery

I'm a Central Wisconsin girl born and raised. I grew up in Port Edwards and participated in cheerleading, basketball, volleyball and softball as well as many clubs like National Honor Society, SADD, yearbook and forensics. I was a very busy high school student and still managed to get good enough grades to go to college at UW-Stevens Point where I was just as busy between working 3 jobs including executive staff positions at the campus alternative rock radio station and volunteering at the campus television station.

After graduation I thought I would take my BA in Mass Communications with emphasis in Broadcasting and Journalism and Minor in Political Science and become a big time reporter in some major city. But instead my internship with our news station here at Midwest Communications turned into a part-time job and opened the door to the morning show co-host position at WDEZ. After 9 1/4 years of fun in the mornings I was promoted to Assistant Brand Manager and moved to The Workday Getaway.

I couldn't deny my love for rock anymore! It was time dive head first into the genre I spent my formative years listening to day in and day out. When the opportunity arose for me to become the Brand Manager for Rock 94.7 and host the morning show I couldn't pass it up.

I'm so happy that I stayed in Central Wisconsin I couldn't imagine raising my three daughters anywhere else.
