HAH! Great topic!

You have to add in ANY video by DIO where he waltzes around with a sword bigger than he is. It’s like 7th graders with a cam corder got together and made their own version of Lord of the Rings. I feel embarrassed whenever I see one. :oops:

I should also mention that every Saturday and Sunday here in the USA the music video channel VH1 Classics plays “Metal Mania” which is a 3 to 4 hour block of old metal videos from the 80’s and 90’s. Sometimes I just stare at the screen in total awe at how cheesy and bad some (most) of the videos are. Then I feel really embarrassed when I think of how much I used to love them when they originally aired. :oops: :oops: :oops:

Those are all very silly 8)

My vote went to Manowar… They’ve got everything! A performance on a big stage with people jumping around in front of them and guitar solo camera wiggling, people on horseback for no apparent reason, sack-wearing people fighting each other, fire, cupid, and to top it off: They wear metal, they wear spikes :lol:

Not necessarily cheesy, but this one always makes me raise an eyebrow. I have no clue what they’re on about, but it’s very funny!

Lee Aaron’s “Metal Queen” … not on Youtube but you can’t get any cheesier than that! Chains, flimsy outfits, swords and explosions!

Ok from what I’v learned from these videos is that whenever Metal dudes carry around a sword they might as well be carrying a block of cheese. :guitar:

I’d like to amend what I said before about swords in metal videos. It goes WAY beyond swords…STAY OUT OF THE FORREST! :roll:

Hangin’ out in a forest of cheese,
no chicks aound we can please.
Give me a sword and drop to you knees

Add some Chugga Chugga’s to that chorus and a tight solo and we got ourselves a video to shoot. :guitar:

In the forest of course! :lol:

Cool, some really great contributions! The 80s definitely were a strange time — all that big hair and prancing about…

I wonder what we’ll think of today’s videos 25 years from now?

Has anyone ever heard “Run to the cheese” by Iron Maiden? A rare live version where Bruce D. actually substituted a number of words by “Cheese”.

“Raping the women
and taking their cheese”

Run to the Cheeeeeezzzze!”

Here’s a bit of modern cheese by Black Label Society:

I love the song, but whenever I see Zakk Wylde shoot water from his fingertips and the huge water throne I have a cheese attack. :roll:

Queensryche’s is by far the cheesiest. I remember seeing it premiere way back in 1983. I took one look at it and said to my mom, “They will never be successful”. Oops ;)
