The original post

So, I was looking through Monthly Video Wrap-up and I set my eyes onto this: the most pathetic song and video in metal history

The Fallacy - Threshold of Light
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu7cJdv3Bwc&feature=mh_lolz&list=FLvIOjyv1abWQY6ctAdkL29A

I mean, I don't meand to bash the band in general, they have some decent, yet average songs, but this monstrosity is f*cking piece of crap.

Does anyone knows any other similar metal video, the one that is so utterly lame that it's actually funny to watch? Except for early Meshuggah videos, obviously.

This is an awesome song, but a hilariously bad video!:




@Lordchadi: First, you need to wrap the URL in youtube tags. Then you need to cut away everything from the URL up to and including the "=". So, if the URL is this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i0_THrxYs1w&ob=av3n, you need to make it so it looks like this: i0_THrxYs1w&ob=av3n.

Great song. Indeed many 80s movies had an environment which was very similar to this video. Nowadays it looks really funny

It is very 80's, and is very obviously influenced by some very cheesy movies of that time.

Well I don't know if it's too early but Dio's Holy Diver is pretty ridiculous.



Just in case some might've missed it

BLASPHEMY!

You caught me while I was editing the message , English is not my mother tongue.

What a decade, great songs, many bands released their best albums in the 80s, but making videos was not the best thing they used to do, have you ever watched some of the Dokken, Judas Priest (Turbo Lover ones) and Scorpions videos? They are also funny.

I have, and yep, they were silly. Not a video for a song, but this totally sums up that time:

Correction to Boxcar William-Holy Diver is the second best video of all time. As awesome as a guy with a two handed sword walking through deserted ruins and slaying somebody without his sword actually touching him, nothing is more metal than slaying a horde of barbarians and turning their women into your voluntary sex slaves.



Manliest. Video. Ever.

And I thought this band cannot sink any lower.

Do they actually have a single fucking song that is not self referential by the way? I cannot imagine how can a fucking band write ALL their damn lyrics about the music style they are playing with a straight face. At least thrash bands who do that are often sarcastic.

And then of course there's Asking Alexandria... For the record, nobody ever asked Alexandria anything ever again.

I don't like most of the Kamelot videos. The ones shot in Serbia (from Ghost Opera) are pretty bad, but they're not in the funny category.

I fully agree with Holy Diver as being one of the worst videos ever made. I actually saw it on VH1 Rocks one night, which has helped me get hooked on a lot of bands such as Priest or Maiden for whom they aired mostly good videos, but that one actually made me think "who the hell is this Ronnie James Dio dude and what kind of crack was he smoking" I was 15 , and it was only later that I actually started to like Dio, remembered the video and laughed my ass off watching it again on youtube.

I would also like to nominate most of Priest's videos (and a host of other 80s videos) to this thread..

This one is so bad I refuse to re-watch it.



This one I suspect is at least just as bad so I refuse to watch it

I wonder if I'm the only one who honestly really liked that video. It was like watching a very brutal version of a lava lamp..... and I friggin love Lava Lamps.

To me it felt like teens 90's videos where smashing things in slo-mo was cool. Now it feels immature, overdone and boring.

Here's something where both the song and the video are bad. You gotta love that singer's facial expressions. Sorry Steve.

Judas Priest's Breaking the Law video is pretty corny too, it's so exaggerated and trying to be "epic" in that all too common 80s way, haha!

Shut the fuck up, Holy Diver's video is the second best video in metal history. What's more metal than walking in an ancient castle and slaying the dark knight with your mighty sword?? Only one thing-Manowar.
