The Top 10 Worst Music Videos Of 2008
After many years of watching music videos, I have come to the conclusion that it takes an extraordinary type of human being to put together a complete piece of garbage. You have to have a total lack of taste, creativity and talent to pull this type of thing of. It’s not an easy task to piss off the entire human race while not having the faintest idea what you were doing.

10. "A Milli" By Lil Wayne
This is definitely one of the biggest and best tracks of the year, but the video is just plain asinine. Do I really want to watch Lil Wayne piss in a trailer Porta-John and walk around shirtless drinking his mystery Sizzurp concoction all in the same sitting? F*** no! This dude is supposed to be some badass rapper, not eating red vines from craft services.
Step yo game up, Weezy.
9. “Overdosin” By Heidi Montag
Can’t these people just go away? I find it unbelievable that anybody took this song serious enough to even shoot a video for it.
Heidi does look pretty hot in some tight ‘80s spandex, but her crappy singing voice and lack of charisma makes this video four minutes and four seconds of FAIL. A sex tape would have done the trick just fine if Montag wanted to enhance her fame, not a half-assed attempt at a singing career. Who does she think think she’s fooling?
8. "Summertime" By The New Kids On The Block
I feel a little bad doing this to the boys from Boston, but when I first saw this video I thought it had to be a joke. Seeing middle-aged boy-banders try to sing a watered-down R&B track to some slutty beach babes was a pretty big letdown. I guess 40-year-old housewives need a little fantasy in their lives.
And since when did Donnie become the leader of the group?
7. "When You Look Me In The Eyes" By The Jonas Brothers
"When You Look Me In The Eyes" is basically a complete replica of every single hair metal ballad music video ever made. The only difference here is that these dudes get no action, do shots of Juicy Juice instead of Jack Daniels and can’t write a decent song to save their lives. Watching rich suburban teenagers lose their sh*t makes me want to cut my testicles off so I can stop myself from bringing more children into this cruel, cruel world.
I’ll take “Home Sweet Home” over this crap any day of the week. I can't believe I just said that.
6. "When I Grow Up" By The Pussycat Dolls
The video for “When I Grow Up” is pretty much the Cliff Notes for any young lady out there trying to become an up-and-coming stripper. As if little girls around the world didn’t need another reason to become a trashy slut.
I just want to know who came up with the concept for this video. For some odd reason, some random douchebag out there thought it would be a good idea for these modern-day pop prostitutes to break into song during a Los Angeles traffic jam and bust out some dance numbers on a glitzy construction site.
