Did Youtube save music videos?

Having just heard Gangnam Style on the radio yesterday it got me thinking... That never could have happened without Youtube. Hearing a Kpop song that is largely sung in Korean on a top 40 radio station was pretty mind blowing to me.

Gotye and LMFAO are two examples of artists that grew exponentially in popularity because of really unique/fun/different music videos. Those two videos combined have close to 1 billion views on Youtube alone. I'm not saying they would have never been popular without Youtube though.

What do you guys think? Is Youtube the most influential thing in today's music? Or does something else top it?
