These guys give Wham a run for their money.

You can't have a thread like this without this video.  I call it the "Career Ender."

Was it the pink shirt? Was it the dancing? Was it the rolling around in bed. Funny thing is, this is a great song. Would not have been out of place on his Never Say No album. Just that godawful video. I still remember the day it first came out on MTV. I peeked through my fingers by the end. It was hard to watch.

Yea, it just seemed to be so out of line with the (mostly) rocking theme that BS had going on back then.  I hope he can laugh about it now because it wasn't well-received when it came out and here we are talking about it again.  Thirty years later...  lol

Gayer than gay. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

The early 80's were a very strange place in the UK.

I have a feeling Rush is going to be over-represented in this thread.

When MTV hit, the major labels sent down a memo to all '70s bands to go metro-sexual or retire. (Poor ZZ Top.) Billy thought that meant go super-gay.

I do believe this is not too many years after Angie Bowie found them in bed together.

I thought I'd just go with a picture of Wham first. You really have to ease into a Wham video.

Rush videos are like shooting ducks in a pond, so I'll pass on Mystic Rhythms and go a 'Separate Way'...

No cringey 80s videos thread would be complete without 1991's Ice Ice Baby.

Cringe at Survivor trying to look hard. These guys are so wimpy I reckon Steve Perry could take them in a fight.
