No, the worst, most cheese video ever is Metallica's version of "Turn the Page."
Take a great song, and make a pretty good cover of it. And then make a video that has NOTHING to do with the lyrics, that doesn't in the least bit tie into the intensity of the song, but have it full shots of a stripper working a pole. A formerly great band took a great song, and ruined both all in one 3-4 minute clip. All of metal and rock should be embarrassed for that.
I disagree about this one. I think it chooses the stripper/prostitute lifestyle to illustrate the darker, seedier side of the music business. The original song was about the hard, dark parts about being a traveling musician, so I don't think it's that much of a stretch.

When she says, given the chance to start over, she would make the same choices - I think that speaks for a lot of musicians, despite the hardships and social scorn they might face.

Plus, that's Ginger Lynn! ;-)
