If you're one of the privileged few who have spent much time with me, chances are, at one point or another, you've learned of my unending hatred of Journey. Well now, thanks to YouTube and an astute find by Bill Simmons, you can now see exactly what I was talking about way back in that 2002 posting*. To this day, there is still no better way of getting on my bad side than throwing yourself into an impromptu air keyboard solo in my presence.

And since we're on the topic of truly hideous music videos, I couldn't close out this entry without mention of Come on Eileen by Dexy's Midnight Runners. You watch the video, and tell me with a straight face that the camera angles and outfits weren't specifically chosen to accentuate hideous bandmember armpits.

And here's your Obligatory Simpsons Reference:

Homer: Lisa, did you see the Grammys?
Lisa: You beat Dexy's Midnight Runners.
Homer: Well, you haven't heard the last of them.

*2002? God, I feel old.
