Worst Music Video Ever Of The Week: Danzig, She Rides

July 4, 2010

I’m a big fan of Danzig’s music, but until now I’d never seen any of their music videos. I guess I didn’t think someone like Glenn Danzig would bother with something so mainstream and mundane. But he did. This is the band’s first video, from their self-titled 1988 debut.

I don’t know what to tell you about this, folks. I think Glenn was flirting with the idea of becoming a real rock star. And this was just a couple of years after he was pouring pig’s blood over himself while fronting Samhain …

If you turn the sound off, you might think you’re watching a Winger video.

Anyway, the boys got it right on their second album, Danzig II: Lucifuge. With a bluesier tone and a marked improvement in Glenn’s ability to sing, this album yielded a song (and video) that almost makes up for that tattooed thonged bum you just had to see.
