"Tubthumping" would not have been my guess for the video with the most weeks at #1, but there may not have been much competition at the time.

This stuff is gold.

There wasn't much competition for Tubthumping at all, the only notably memorable videos that charted at the time were The Verve's "Bittersweet Symphony" and Radiohead's "Karma Police". The quality of music videos and music in general was declining at the time, which eventually lead to the death of music on MTV.
