Today (September 5)  is “National Cheese Pizza Day.” While you could (and should) celebrate by actually eating cheese pizza, you should also check out this list of cheesy rock music videos.

KISS – “Let’s Put The X In Sex”

You can’t really throw all of KISS under the bus for this clip. Paul Stanley is definitely the main offender here. From his dancing, to bending that one woman over multiple times and the constant effort to show off his nipples, this video puts the X in NEXT!

Poison – “Fallen Angel”

Oh…this classic narrative:  Small town kid moves to L.A. only to end up slutting it up and getting involved with a sleezy…casting agent? Not quite sure of that guy’s role in this video, but that kick to the groin he takes from the “Fallen Angel” was weak. Thankfully, Bret Michaels is there to whisk her away from this madness.

Judas Priest – “Breaking The Law”

A classic example of when bad music videos happen to great songs. You have to remember MTV was still a relatively new thing when this video dropped. Also, most would strongly advise against trying to rob a bank by entering it and singing, “Breaking The Law! Breaking The Law!” (Actually, most would also strongly advise against robbing banks, period.)

Guns N’ Roses – “Estranged”

Production and budget-wise, this video doesn’t qualify as “cheesy,” but who can really handle Axl Rose swimming with dolphins and Slash rising from the ocean (or lake or soundstage aquarium tank) to play a solo?

David Lee Roth – “Just A Gigolo”

God bless DLR, but this is just too much. Whoever came up with this video’s treatment was crazy from more than just the heat.
