Oof, that’s a stinker! Great bassline though.

It sure is.

Another example of why the ‘80s was the decade that style forgot 

 

 

One of my favourite songs, but the video is somewhat.......'of its time' :)

Ah - that took me back to sitting in a Uni room listening to the hi-fi.

Of course, the video is daft in the first place with them whizzing around and Geddy himself describes the hairdo as like a racoon had landed on his head.

Aimee Mann guested pushing a camera around on that one.

Here's a beautiful bit of 80s... Skipetty skip!

 

Again, that took me back - Miami Vice, a bottle of Liebfraumilch.

Billy Squier is one of my favourite artists, but that is the must sucky video ever.

It took me a couple of views to figure out what was wrong with this and it is just that Gaga isn't very good at dancing. It must have cost mega bucks too. It reminds me of the brilliant spoof by Darvid Brent/RG's Lady Gypsy below.

I don't know how serious the intentions were when this abomination was released, but it's AWFUL. This kept popping up on a metal forum I used to be a member of.

I'd never seen the  David Brent video, thank you so much for sharing it, absolutely brilliant.

This one is a good 'un.

Apparently Vivian Campbell and Chris Glen turned up unannounced, so they borrowed a couple of cheap guitars for them to pose with in the street in Soho.

Wow.

That has to be a winner of this competition!

Anything by Dio.

The sheer crushing brilliance of Ronnie, including his theatricality and ability to mesmerize an audience collapsing into utter cheese on video.

It's the contrast between the music and the imagery that makes them so bad.

 

 

And what the hell does a pervert in the park have to do with an anthem of hope and joy?

Yes that cracks me up every time, and the slight clumsiness and of the girl dancing was all I could think of when I saw that GAGA vid.

Inspired by some truly hilarious music videos I have seen on Youtube I thought there should be a thread for unintentionally hilarious music videos, I will start this off, I think the 2nd one may have been intentional but there is no excuse for the 1st and the 3rd  , I love the way Paul Stanley seems to be wearing his mothers boots and the way Gene Simmons looks like a creepy uncle in the Kiss video

 

 

 

The teenage me saw absolutely NO HUMOUR in that Kiss video! I now accept I may have been disproportionately forgiving. My saving grace was that we used to rent the Venom live video from the local video store just so as we can laugh at it! Fast forward to my current band and we were originally signed to the Venom singer's record label! Seems he had a thing for 70s glam!?

I fear it is all too easy to pick on 80s Hard Rock, so my humble offering is this mid 80s forgotten classic from bob Dylan. It starts with him not wanting to be there, continues with the worst choice of outfits in the history of fashion, coupled with some dreadful acting and if you hold out to the end you get to see Dylan do some synchronised dancing! I kid thee not!

Anonymous of course.

It's the poor bugger in 2020 shelling out for over price meet and greets that need the help. We got out, relatively unscathed!

I must confess the drummer's done a book and I am mildly curious but stop short at coughing up the £14 Amazon want for it.

That's bad. The song's bad too. Maybe that's why they look so cross in the video?

Just came across this:

 

Be afraid, be very afraid.

Beware the snowballs of Satan....

Why do they remind me of this:
