Stay Away From MTV - The Absolute Worst Music Videos Ever

The advent of music videos has really been a great thing for the culture industry. Everyone from Michael Jackson to Nine Inch Nails to REM has ensured that with their contributions to the art of music video making, this art form won't be dying out any time soon. But of course just like there are good and bad songs, there are also good and bad music videos.
Actually more than bad, there are really, really horrible music videos. And some of the biggest artists of our time and of yesteryears have been guilty of making a few horrible music videos in their careers. Here are some of the absolute worst in music video making history:
- David Hasselhoff: Those two words say it all. No need to mention any songs, or to quote liner notes, or to remember his entire discography. This man's run as a recording artist spawned some of the most horrible music videos known to man, woman and child. Songs like 'Hooked On A Feeling' are some of the most laughable moments in television history. The fact that he is one of the most successful recording artists in Germany makes it even scarier.
- Journey: Though one of the most successful rock groups of the last decades, Journey has been known to produce some bad music videos themselves. If you were ever a fan of over obsessed rock music fanatics who regularly make fools out of themselves called air guitarists, then you'll love Journey's 'Separate Ways' with a vengeance. The band make it a point to passionately play instruments that aren't even there that a touching video becomes absolutely hilarious.
- Alanis Morissette: The poster girl for angry, female pop-rock was fresh from her hit album 'Jagged Little Pill' when her follow-up album's new single 'India' hit the airwaves featuring a naked Alanis walking around the streets and socializing. Normally a video with a naked and beautiful celebrity would excite a lot of male fans, but the concept was so loony that it ended up quite bad and rather funny.
These are just a few of the many videos that have drawn gasps, laughter and not a few puking sessions from its viewers. If you want the complete list of the most horribly made music videos of all time, visit:
