Modern history set to a rock song 'supercut'

I have always wanted to do an accurate, HD version, using actual archival footage of Billy Joel's "We Didn't Start the Fire" and added the extra challenge of only using footage found on YouTube.

Here is the result:

Exclusive: "We Didn't Start The Fire": An Ode to YouTube (HD) - YouTube

There is more information on the making and a complete list of sources on my blog here: “We Didn’t Start the Fire”: An Ode to YouTube danthecameraman

Any feedback, corrections etc would be most welcome!

Wow. It always was a compelling song, but the original clip let it down. Far better than the original and you've also done a great job in modernising it. Perhaps Billy should have done the same. Great effort mate.
