Music has caused plenty of controversy in its time, but not just for offensive lyrics and racy stage antics. No, the music video has been the source of as much distaste and shock as any other musical medium - and today we want to identify the main offenders.
This week's Wednesday question is:
What is the most controversial music video of all time?
This could go in any direction, and we're interested to see what voters go for. You might nominate some outrageously sick metal videos, or you might be more culturally savvy and find the next hidden Rebecca Black"Friday" wannabe on YouTube.
If you're really smart, you might be able to dig out videos that were genuinely political and caused ripples out in the real world because they were so powerful.
One request - if you're going to post something really unpleasant, please add a "NSFW" (Not Suitable for Work) label so people don't accidentally view a nomination that might get them fired!
Whatever you nominate, just post one song per comment and upvote others that you agree with. We'll be posting the results in an outrageous top 10 on Friday, where your nomination might appear. Good luck!
