Worst Music Video Ever Of The Week: Never Again, The Mission

June 8, 2009

I love this band. I love this song. The album where you’ll find it, Masque, is the perfect distillation of English music of the late 1980s/early 1990s: goth meets hard rock meets superfolk meets Madchester. It’s all there.

But this video is a big ball of cringe.

“Hey, you know what? For this video for big loud rock song about overindulgence and vice? We need a clown.”

“Okay.”

  1. The lead singer looks and sounds like Ozzy’s and Bono’s love child.


  2. That’s Wayne Hussey, one of my rock gods. And while he was looking pretty Bono-esque at this point in the Mission’s history, he was doing the shades thing before Ozzy. In Wayne’s case, it’s necessary; if he were to wear regular glasses, he would look like Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys, and Bubbles ain’t no goth-rock superstar.

    Actually, I always thought Wayne looked like Geddy Lee’s sister.
