10 Most Controversial Music Videos

Celestius

The Top Ten

1 Closer - Nine Inch Nails (1994)

With nudity, animal cruelty, and religious imagery, there's no wonder why this video was banned.

2 Viorar Vel Til Loftarasa - Sigur Ros (2002)
3 Jeremy - Pearl Jam (1992)
4 Forced Gender Reassignment - Cattle Decapitation

Definitely #2. I'd have to say "Closer" deserves its #1 spot though. I mean, Forced Gender is pretty gross, but when it comes down to it: it's just gore. But "Closer"...that was almost exploitation-film level messed up. Both are great songs though. - ThatStrangeKid42

This video is absolutely vile, its hardly even a song its just gore and sexual violence, I'm surprised its not number one.

My eyes are scarred by the sexual violence :(

5 (s)AINT - Marilyn Manson (2003)
6 Lemon Incest - Serge Gainsbourg (1984)
7 It's a Beautiful Day for Cancer - Al Bino (2009)

I can already tell this song is bad and I haven't even seen it. Seriously, who WANTS Cancer? - BlueTopazIceVanilla

8 Smack My Bitch Up - The Prodigy (1997)

Nothing even comes close.

9 Like a Prayer - Madonna (1989)
10 Call On Me - Eric Prydz (1982)
