Anyone can make a music video. Anyone. And let’s just say they have widely varying levels of talent and ability. I’m not saying I’m some kind of Spike Jonez of videography, but if I ever put a video on YouTube for a song, I would at least ensure that it met minimum standards of quality. Now, some “worst” videos are intentionally bad, and I’ll show you some of those too, but most of them are just awful and the artist is oblivious.
Here’s Zlad with Elektronik Supersonik, but I think this falls under intentionally bad. Pretty funny.
Now, this one by Jan Terri is really awful. Cringeworthy.
This might be a parody, but I don’t know of what. Kind of like Iron Maiden sung in Finnish or something.
I found this while looking around, and I’ll throw it in here for comic relief.
The infamous Clowny Clown Clown video by Crispin Glover – horrible.
An internet meme, here’s Trolololo, or whatever it’s actually called.
This list wouldn’t be complete without Friday by Rebecca Black.
I don’t… what the… just watch this, if you dare.
Okay, moving back into intentionally funny, Jon LaJoie.
I’ll hit that Jon LaJoie well twice, and then outta here. Here’s an awesomely bad love song.
Thank you for watching. Actually, I’m sorry for this whole post.
Note: I originally posted this in December 2011. It’s still true today. There’s no Nickelback, but I refuse to post any of their videos. Screw them.
