There’s just something hilarious about the combination of big hair, shredding guitars, and absurdly aggressive clichés in metal music video history that we can’t get enough of. Here are some of the funnier, bad-taste clips from metal bands that go to the extreme.
Dokken’s “Dream Warriors” was the terrible theme of the 1987 horror threequel A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, written by Wes Craven. Most of the video features the film’s star Patricia Arquette running around a spooky house evading pizza-faced child killer Freddy Krueger. The band confronts Freddy at the end of the song by sing-shouting into his face, resulting in a cheesy dramatic moment.
