The most importent are: decent location, solid lights, fast lens :)
Your gear depends on the story of your video. You have to decide, what is your music video about: do you want to tell a story with it, or just want to promote the band?
A Canon 50mm f1.8 is a cheap one and it's very versatile. You might want to use a wide angle for some shots. Try to storyboard your ideas and you'll see.
Is the band going to play together or separately? How do you want to light them, what kind of atmosphere do you want create? Is your video going to be colored or BaW? You might use colored light bulbs to create some interesting looks.
Your ideas, your choices :)
Hey! What is your budget? Zoom lenses are fine, but if you're looking for cheaper alternatives, try the old ones. There are plenty of old, but fast manual lenses, which can be used with an adaptor. Look after helios, old pentax, nikon, etc. lenses. You can get it for maybe 50 bucks.
