I vaguely remember a video clip from a decade or so.. I need help from community to identify it (the band and the song).

Where should I ask for help ?

The problem is that there is already a music site, so you should get it on-topic there, since it isn't at the moment (thanks Shadow Wizard for commenting that) (ask on their meta, not likely to happen), or get a new site (not likely too due to the user base you need).

In my opinion you can describe a movie easier than a piece of music, so that might be a reason that is can be on-topic on Movie.SE and not on Music Fans, I think you don't have any chance here.

    Well, identify-this-movie is very popular on movies.stackexchange.com and while not making excellent questions, is still useful to many people and considered on topic there. Exhibit A (old, but still relevant), Exhibit B (original way to keep the site cleaner). So all in all, I do not agree with your general idea. Mar 31, 2015 at 12:37
  • No -1 because the final conclusion is correct, no site for identify-this-song, but for other reasons than you mention. Mar 31, 2015 at 12:39
  • Answer. Maybe "reasons" is not the correct word, more like your general idea that "identify-this-thing" is off topic for whole Stack Exchange. Each site set its own rules, to some extent of course. :) Mar 31, 2015 at 12:42
  • Just to keep it clear, I not talk about "identify-this-song" (for me describe a piece of music is just not possible) but more "identify-this-video-clip"

    @ShadowWizard Yet, M&TV thought hard to get at least some ID-things thrown out, and music video and commercial identification belong to that. So there really doesn't seem to be a place for this kind of question. Mar 31, 2015 at 17:13

Music video identification has been ruled off-topic on Movies & TV, too. So together with Patrick's answer, I don't think there is a valid place for you to ask this question at the moment.
