Bad Video Alert

I hereby interrupt my coverage of the pressing issues of the day because VH1 Classic has just chosen to show the worst music video ever made. No, not Vanilla Ice, though he certainly comes close. No, I speak of the video for "Balls to the Wall", the 1984 signature song from German metal "legends" Accept.

A thoroughly mediocre song accompanied by an even worse video. It starts with the guitarist standing there "playing" in front of the drums. He is quickly joined by the bassist and other guitarist. Finally, just when you think it can't get any worse, out comes the pathetic Rob Halford wannabe to start lipsynching the horrible excuse for vocals. Besides showing the band, the rest of the video shows a bunch of metal freaks banging their heads against a concrete wall, which eventually collapses. Wow, I'm really impressed. I'm sure the director intended to make some profound point about breaking down the walls that we are confined in by modern industrial society. Or not.

Overall, this video has no redeeming value other than having inspired one of the greatest moments in the history of Beavis and Butthead. I know, most metal videos suck. This one, however, takes it to the Hoover Deluxe level.
