Beavis and Butthead's Favorite Music Videos

In the show Beavis and Butthead, whenever our two main characters weren't on their own personal crusades of stupidity, they would be in front of the television watching MTV. They would be seen watching music videos and reacting to them. Most of the videos that they watched received a lot of mockery from Beavis and Butthead, but there were some videos that they liked. These are some of those videos. I'm creating this list purely off their reactions to each individual video, and I'm sure that if you asked Beavis and Butt-head themselves, they might give you a different answer than me. But since that's not going to happen, I'm just going to go ahead and make this list.
The Top Ten
1 Them Bones - Alice in Chains

Beavis and Butthead liked all the big grunge bands except Pearl Jam, which they never reacted to. When they watched the video for Them Bones, Butthead said it was the coolest video he'd ever seen.

2 I Wanna Be Sedated - Ramones

They loved this video so much that they didn't even say anything. They just rocked out to it the whole time.

3 Sabotage - Beastie Boys

Beavis got so excited while watching this video that he couldn't control himself, despite promising Butthead that he would keep his mouth shut. Although Beavis and Butthead generally preferred hard rock and metal, they enjoyed rap music to some extent. The Beastie Boys were definitely their favorite rap group because they were heavy in their own way.

4 Wiggle Stick - The Reverend Horton Heat

A guy playing souped-up rock and roll with a snake around his neck? Enough to get Beavis and Butthead's attention.

5 Jive Talkin' - Bee Gees

When they heard the song for the first time, they thought it was the Black Crowes, but then realized it was cooler than the Black Crowes. They can also be seen dancing and shaking their bottoms to the song.

6 Head Like a Hole - Nine Inch Nails

Much like the video for "I Wanna Be Sedated," they didn't say much aside from "These guys are cool," instead rocking out to the music.

7 No Voices In The Sky - Motörhead
8 Bikini Girls With Machine Guns - The Cramps

The Cramps promised a music video featuring bikini girls with machine guns, and they did not disappoint. Worthy of the boys' respect.

9 Butt Town - Iggy Pop

As you can clearly tell, this song emphasizes juvenile humor, which the boys found to be extremely clever.

10 I'm Broken - Pantera

When they watched this one, Beavis turned up the TV volume so loud that he couldn't hear a word Butthead was saying.

The Contenders
11 Just a Friend - Biz Markie

When they saw Biz Markie wearing that costume in the music video, MTV was like, "OMG, they're watching a Biz Markie music video?! TV-14 my ass!"

12 Painkiller - Judas Priest

They can be seen headbanging to this song, and at one point, Beavis tries to sing like Rob Halford.

13 Gin & Juice - Snoop Dogg
14 Fire Woman - The Cult

The boys loved this song, probably because it has references to fire in it.

15 Seasons In the Abyss - Slayer

They can be seen singing along with the opening riff, prompting Butthead to say, "They should play that part throughout the entire song."

16 Outshined - Soundgarden

They watched four of Soundgarden's videos, particularly enjoying this one and "Rusty Cage." When Chris Cornell appears on screen, Butthead says, "That guy looks like Jesus," and Beavis says, "Christ is cool."

17 Symphony of Destruction - Megadeth

This video has a lot of war violence and destruction, which the boys definitely think is cool. The version they listened to is the Gristle Mix, which was done by Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails.

18 Who Was In My Room Last Night? - Butthole Surfers

Beavis and Butthead loved these guys. The main reason, besides the funny name, is that their music rocked. Aside from saying that the band was cool and that Flea showing up in the video was cool, they didn't say anything. Much like the Ramones video, they rocked out the entire time.
