There's bad agony: stepping on an electric plug on your way to the bathroom in the middle of the night; watching a bare-assed Jeff Conway moaning for Icy Hot on Celebrity Rehab; Amy Winehouse as a blonde.
Then there's really good agony, like the kind you get when you stare down deep into the black pit of shirt-rending, chest-beating darkness and emotional despair that is OneRepublic's new video, "Stop and Stare."
Oh, you haven't seen it?
Like we said: agonizing. But in the good way.
