Big Grin Music videos that ruin their respective songs

List them.

I'll start with this disturbing piece of cinema:

Pearl Jam, Jeremy

Despite winning several awards, if I'm not mistaken a fan approached Vedder and told him that he didn't like the video overwhelming his own imagining of the song, and after that Pearl Jam stopped making them altogether.

I'm going to be a rebel and post the most amazing music video ever made.

Because I'm like that.

This is a laughable song to begin with, but it does have an infectious riff. The only thing worse than the lyrics, though, is the video:

Sidenote: I have friend who was a few classrooms down the day that that happened, she heard the shot (the song is based on a true story), to this day she can't listen to that song...

I understand leaving some songs up to interpretation but I also understand that some songs need a video like Jeremy.

I can't think of many videos that actually ruined the song, but seeing U2 as the Village People scarred me for quite awhile...

It wasn't so much them dressing up as much as it was Bono dressed as a cop thrusting into the camera.

I wanna know what songs you're linking to! I'm at work and can't (well, won't) click on them.

Can you please name the videos you're linking to for us poor slobs stuck at a desk?

My link was from this bizarre and borderline disturbing video for (Your Love Keeps Lifting Me) Higher And Higher. Pimp suits, afros, and claymation FTW.

How about music videos that catapult their songs into a completely different stratosphere of awesomeness?

Props to MC Skat Cat, he did it like no other could. I'm sorry I mean MC Scat Kat. The "K" made him street

I think that is the highest compliment I have ever gotten on this board.

a great grat song, specially live... and it gets this crappy video?, I mean, in the song Jon practically screams and he barely moves in the video... and it has nothing to do with the song... or anything, really

-

you'll get my point around the 5:50 mark, then that solo...
