The Worst Music Videos...EVER!

Music Videos became popular in the 80's with the introduction of MTV. Thousands and thousands of bands made these videos as either promo's to their upcoming album's or sometimes to make a statement. Sometimes, a band will even hire a director to make a piece of art that is comparable to the music that is representing. MTV and VH1 used to be the mecca of music videos...but in recent years MTV and VH1 has been showing less music videos and more reality tv junk.

Every once in a while I will stumble on a music video that will make me cringe. Sometimes you will find a music video that will make you seriously question the "vision of the director".

Here is a list of music videos that I consider: The Worst Music Videos...EVER!

Number 5 : Quiet Riot - Cum On Feel the Noize

I do not know who thought of this music video idea but it is hilariously bad. Lets think about what that conversation would have been like...

"Hey Bob, How's that Quiet Riot music video idea coming along"
"Well...I was thinking about a demonic stereo that wouldn't stop playing"
"Yeah that would be great! But wait...who would be scared of a radio that won't stop playing.."
"I know! A teenager...who was just sleeping! Waking up to a radio that won't shut off would be the Worst!"
*Sorry for the Spanish Subtitles*

Number 4: Miami Sound Machine - Dr. Beat

This video is pretty bad. I couldn't sit through and watch the whole video. The song is almost just as bad as the video. Some very important societal questions come up in this video..."Why is there a woman trying to commit suicide because she is dancing?" "Why is Dr. Beat wearing a hat with blue floppy ears and wearing red face paint over his eyes?" and "Why is there a little black kid break dancing while all of this is going on?" WHATS GOING ON?!?

Number 3: Leonard Nimoy- Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

There was a time when it seemed like a good idea for star trek actors to pursue a music career. That was not a good time. Spock decided to branch out and do nice songs with little kids about Bilbo Baggins. I don't have to say anything else.

Number 2: David Hasselhoff - Jump In My Car

The Baywatch man is at it again, this time astounding viewers with cheesy graphics, shooting stars, bad green screening, and of course a drop kick with flames in the background. Oh baby!

And Finally!! Number 1: Mervi Vesala - Ohjaaja ...aka...I Wanna Love You Tender

This Finnish band has some of the funniest choreography I have ever seen. Oh and did I mention its supposed to be in SPACE!!!!!!

Some of you may be wondering why I left off the internet sensation Zladko "Zlad!" Vladcik's Electronik Supersonik....

The only reason why I didn't keep it on the list is because Zlad! made his video and song to be super bad...It would have won for sure if it was trying to be a serious video.

here is Electronik Supersonik!
