It seems like they were only yesterday, but do you realize how bad the 90s were?
There were the 80s hair bands hanging around way past their use by dates, some terrible one hit wonders, and oh yes, David Hasselhoff.
So settle yourself in for a look at some of the most awful, and most hilarious, music videos from the 1990s.
“Hooked on a Feeling” by David Hasselhoff
You’ve got to hand it to David Hasselhoff. This song may be terrible, and the video may contain some of the worst special effects I’ve ever seen, but it’s so entertaining!
See The Hoff fly like a superhero, become an Eskimo, and dance with Masai warriors, all in the one video.
“Burger Man” by ZZ Top
This is one of ZZ Top’s lesser known hits, and with good reason. I’m not sure what they were smoking when they penned a song called Burger Man, and then decided the clip needed a Burger Monster, but here it is.
Make sure you watch right to the end for the Burger Monster’s spectacular demise.
“Cherry Pie” by Warrant
At the time I thought this was a great song with a great clip. Now as I watch it back it makes me skin crawl. It features those hair band has-beens Warrant and as many blatant sexual references as they could cram into one music video. Creepy stuff.
“I’m Too Sexy” by Right Said Fred
Now I know I’m Too Sexy was written as a parody of the fashion industry. But watching lead singer Richard Fairbrass strut around makes me believe he really does think he’s too sexy for his shirt, his cat, and your party. He’s not.
“Ice Ice Baby” by Vanilla Ice
Long before the world embraced white rap with Eminem, we had Vanilla Ice. Why wasn’t he shown the same respect? Was it that neatly coiffed hair? The choreographed dance moves? Or perhaps those terrible lyrics?
Watching this film clip, it all comes flooding back to me.
