Welcome to the Guest List, Substream’s new feature where we ask your favorite musicians to tell us about their favorite stuff.

Today’s installment: Best Coast frontwoman Bethany Cosentino picks her all-time favorite YouTube videos.

1. Nardwuar vs. Drake

This is my favorite Nardwuar interview ever. When he interviewed us, I talked to him about this interview for a really long time.

2. Cute munchkin baby kitten talks too much

I always watch this one on tour when I miss my cat. This kitten’s little legs! And that meow! It melts my heart.

3. Fleetwood Mac (Stevie Nicks & Christine McVie) Happy Birthday, Warner Brothers!

My two favorite ladies being crazy and drunk while trying to wish Warner Bros. a happy birthday.

4. Billy Joel Goes Crazy In Concert!!

We are really obsessed with videos of musicians freaking out onstage and this is one of the best ones. I love how he’s just yelling while singing and then just fully pushes the piano over.

5. The Cure – Primary live Orange 1987

We just watched a DVD of this whole concert on the bus a few nights ago, it’s so epic.

6. Christian Bale Screaming On Set of Batman

Bobb has this recording on his iPod and we seriously listen to it when we are driving all the time. It makes us laugh so hard. We love to make jokes with each other on tour quoting this.

7. The Furniture Guy funny commercial fail! (Original)

One of our favorite stupid YouTube videos. I love when he’s just like, “Fucked up my guitar though.”

8. Oasis – DVD commentary highlights

Basically our favorite DVD to watch when we’re touring. Noel’s commentary on all the Oasis videos is the best. It literally makes me laugh so hard my stomach hurts.

9. Taking Back Sunday – MakeDamnSure

This is our favorite song that a lot of people hate on us for liking. We don’t believe in guilty pleasures, though; we legitimately love this song and it pumps us up.

10. Cocteau Twins – Song to the Siren (Live)

One of my favorite voices of all time. This cover is amazing and I’ve probably watched this video 200 times.
