Is This The Worst Electronic Music Video Ever?

I was browsing around at WFMU‘s blog, and I came across the video for V-I-S-I-T-O-R-S, by the group Visitors.

The song and video are from 1981, but even for the 80’s, Visitors managed to find new and original ways to suck. I could enumerate the ways this video sucks, but suffice it to say, this gets my vote for the worst electronic music video of all time.

Let me know what you think in the comments.

  1. Holy hell, this sucks to the “nth” degree.

    It “sucks, by design”.

    It sucks globally.

    But by the end, I have to admit that I was chanting along:

    V-I-S-I-T-O-R-S!

  2. Wow, music you can SMELL! And what’s that lead guy wearing over his crotch, a Yield sign? A biohazard emblem? Ugh, Angel goes faux techno and Punky Meadows wears a white afro. You know the music is bad when the dog starts whining and scratching at the door 30 seconds in. It’d be funny if they weren’t taking it seriously.

  3. Nevermind the video, the song sucks, even more. I listen to, and enjoy, a lot of music from this era, and this ain’t no Joy Division! It’s like a bad rock band with a “hey look, KNOBS!” approach to new wave.

  4. I dunno what’s worse:their faces,crotch shields,whole look or their music.It’s like a whole band of half-arsed Iggy Pops with Parkinsons and Tourettes…
