Lifelounge guide to controversial music videos

27 NOV 2011 | Posted By: LifeloungeStaff

Lifelounge guide to controversial music videos Apparently Rihanna's 'We Found Love' video has been banned, or rated Not For The Children, or something. This is because of its drug references rather than its over Calvin Harris-ness. (LOL! JK! We kid, we kid.)

Anyway, that gave us a really good reason to Google NSFW videos all day and look at boobs. Tough life.

Here's the Lifelounge guide to controversial music videos.

Rihanna 'S&M'
What was most controversial about this video was how David LaChapelle was like "Yo! Don't steal my fucking ideas! I'm onto you guys!" and Rihanna's people were all "OK! Geez! Let's settle this out of court and not make a big deal of it!"

Frankie Goes to Hollywood 'Relax'

So the song was about boning, but the video was banned for what appears to be too much leather. (Or when that fat dude gets naked.)

Nine Inch Nails 'Closer'
Gore, guts, nudity and that liddle monkey on a crucifix. Mum hated you watching this shit. And then there are the lyrics...

NERD 'Lapdance'
People were shocked and appalled by the objectification of women. But nobody spoke of the shock and appall caused by Pharell's pedo moustache.

Madonna 'Erotica'
Girl on girl! Heavens! Call a priest! (Meanwhile, how much does Naomi Campbell love to cameo on a music video? Heaps.)

T.A.T.U. 'All The Things She Said'
A lesbian kiss was an outrage in 2002. It'd be laughable if it weren't so depressing.

The Prodigy 'Smack My Bitch Up'
Drugs, violence, crime, sex – conservative groups went wild, but why they no see how clever it was? Maybe they didn't watch the whole thing.

Bjork 'Cocoon'

Two words: nipple ribbons.

Duran Duran 'Girls on Film'

Sexy wrestling! Non-sexy Sumo guy! Oil massage! It was controversial, but it sure as shit ain't now.

Britney Spears 'Everytime'
Apparently this had suicidal undertones. We were too busy being shouting "Somebody gave Stephen Dorff a job! Yes! Britney gave Stephen Dorff a job! Love you, Stephen! Missed you!"

This contains "disturbing images". Mostly what is disturbing is white dudes with dreadlocks and eyebrow piercings.

Aphex Twin 'Windowlicker'
