The Top Ten Good Songs with the Worst Music Videos

1 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

Song: The vocals fit very well, and Miley is showing true emotion.
Video: She is naked on a construction site. - JoPro

My lyrics: I hate the stupid Wrecking Ball - Neonco31

Song: Miley's voice fits perfectly for this song and sings it greatly. It's a very good song about love.
Video: You know what it is: Licking hammers, her naked on the wrecking ball... Just a horrible concept. - Martinglez

2 Don't Wanna Know - Maroon 5

Song:Nice beat and good vocals.
Video:They are dressed as pokemon and being caught, like actual pokemon go. - JoPro

This video was awesome! It was a rant at how celebrties get so much overexposure they epnd less time with loved ones, and then the girl was a pokemon who escaped cause of it - ProPanda

Song: Kinda repetitive but catchy and fun to listen to. It's okay.
Video: They are dressed as pokemon and being chased by people on their phones. This was released alfter the pokemon go had completely died down, plus it's totally unrelated to the song. - Martinglez

For those who didn't vote for this, DID YOU EVEN SEE THE MUSIC VIDEO?
Completely IRRELEVANT...

3 Paradise - Coldplay


Respect furries bro - ProPanda

Song: Catchy and good singing. One of Coldplay's worst but still pretty good.
Video: A guy in an elephant costume going through different locations. - Martinglez

4 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler

The general trend seems to be music videos unrelated to their songs.

Song: A catchy and heartfelt ballad which Bonnie sings greatly. This is really a great song.
Video: Totally unrelated to the song. Totally random stuff in this. - Martinglez

5 Rude - Magic

Song: Yeah, I actually like this. It's okay. It's catchy and, while the lyrics aren't the best, it's pretty okay.
Video: A guy going to another guy's house various times for his daughter even when the father said no. - Martinglez

6 If I Could Turn Back Time - Cher

Song: Powerful and strong song which is also very catchy. Cher sings it greatly.
Video: Cher dancing around on a battleship. No relation to the song. - Martinglez

7 Shut Up and Dance - Walk the Moon

Song: Catchy, energetic and sung well. Pretty good song.
Video: I get what they tried to do, a video that reminds you of 80s ones, but this is like one of the worse ones from the decade. - Martinglez

8 Sorry - Justin Bieber

He should be sorry for making that video - TwilightKitsune

THe video was not really a msic video. And in my opinion, the song is trash - ProPanda

Song: Catchy and Justin Bieber actually singing well.
Video: Absence of JB, instead we have some girls doing a weird choreography. - Martinglez

9 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

I don't mind the video. It's just that it interrupts the song too much. And that one puppet makes such dreadful noises! If it had a better video, I swear it would have a billion views by now - RecklessGreed

Song: Epic and powerful song. Great vocals and music.
Video: Puppets... Puppets... I expected something completely different for a song like this. - Martinglez

10 Separate Ways (Worlds Apart) - Journey

I like the song, but the video is super cheesy. I'm surprised it hasn't been turned into a meme or something yet. - Gg2000

11 Right Now - Korn

Yes! - LightningStrike


12 Animals - Maroon 5

18 Closer - The Chainsmokers

Not Even California In that Music Video.

26 Anaconda - Nicki Minaj

Note: I only put it here because the music video completely destroyed the song for me. I was fine when I just heard the lyrics - AlphaQ

This song is extremely awful!

27 Chandelier - Sia
28 24 Karat (Remix) - Kollegah

Like in almost every song by Kollegah, he is in full bragging mode, but at a highly complex lyrical level. For the video version, he recorded a whole new verse (the second verse of the song) that is even better than anything on the album version, mostly because it is darker and more menacing. Also there are guest verses by fellow rappers Seyed (who is more or less a Shindy rip off but he does a fine job on here delivering the third verse), and Ali As (who is the weakest of the three delivering the opening verse), all rapped over an atmospheric beat featuring distant chants echoing over dark bass lines.
The video: butts, butts, butts, butts, butts, butts and even more more butts. Also: butts. And butts. The weirdest moment has a guy looking dead serious with his "killer face" on while a girl who has two eyes painted on her butt cheeks shakes what her mama gave her only a few inches before his face. Also, golden cocaine is snorted from a woman’s rear end. And random shots of ...more - Martin_Canine

29 Crazy Kids - Kesha
30 Don't Trust Me - 3oh!3
31 All We Know - The Chainsmokers

This is more of Grand Theft Auto with dating couples - MChkflaguard_Yt

32 I Took a Pill in Ibiza - Mike Posner (Seeb Remix)
33 Adventure of a Lifetime - Coldplay


34 Sippy Cup - Melanie Martinez

Wattpad @kidges

Don't get me wrong, love this song. I just had to add this here.

The video is disgusting and depressing.

35 The Carpal Tunnel of Love - Fall Out Boy
36 Girls Chase Boys - Ingrid Michaelson

I like this song, but the video is unwatchable. It's not shocking or funny - if it were, it might have more than 16 million views. It's just terrible, and not much else.

37 867-5309/Jenny - Tommy Tutone

Song: Catchy, very-80s sounding song, but has a damn good guitar riff and decent “solo”
Video: The singer sees some girl, the girl gives him her phone number (867-5309), the singer tells his “therapist” and for some reason she falls in love with the therapist. The singer sneaks in and the police out of nowhere just straight up arrested his ass for sneaking on him and his prison number is (surprise, surprise) 8675309. Like what?

38 Painkiller - Ruel
39 November Rain - Guns N' Roses
40 I Gotta Feeling - The Black Eyed Peas

I like this song but not the music video - trains45

41 The Killers - Read My Mind
