20 of the Most Controversial Music Videos Ever

By  | 

Music videos are one of the best forms of artistic expression.

However, sometimes the imagery turns out to be explicit, disturbing, or just downright offensive. With the inclusion of things like religion, full nudity, and graphic sex scenes, many videos struck a nerve and received constant criticism. Some even went as far as getting banned from certain networks. But this is no surprise, considering that so many artists are boldly breaking boundaries when it comes to making a statement through their music videos.
