10 of the Grossest Music Videos Ever Made [NSFW]

It’s been quite a year for the Flaming Lips — they’ve released something pretty much every month, including a 24-hour song and an EP in a gummy bear skull. And, of course, they’ve managed to thoroughly piss off Erykah Badu by releasing an unapproved cut of the video for “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face.” The video understandably caused quite a stir, given that it involved Badu’s sister Nayrok sitting stark naked in bathtubs full of glitter, blood, and a substance that looked like it was supposed to be semen. After Badu went public with her concerns about the video, it was expunged from the Internet — so with the album from which the song is taken, namely The Flaming Lips and Heady Fwends, finally getting a proper release this week — we thought we’d round up some other, um, challenging videos for your viewing pleasure. Like most Flaming Lips videos, these are all pretty NSFW, but as far as we’re aware, they were made with the full consent of all involved.

Klaxons — “Twin Flames”

Like “The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face,” this caused quite a stir when it was released a couple of years back, and it’s not hard to see why — it depicts a weird orgy featuring conjoined high schoolers, and lots of… um, well, we hope it’s saliva. It’s a pretty remarkable piece of work for all that it’s both thoroughly disconcerting and, dare we say it, weirdly sexy.
