Worst metal video ever?

Because we’re mature men with impeccable taste in modern music, some buddies and I were discussing the global cultural impact of the upcoming Keel reunion tour. It got me thinking , which usually leads to no good. So, as I repeatedly kept watching the worst 80s metal videos I could remember (I was feeling a bad metal fever coming on and this definitely was the cure), my colleague George Kelly sent me this awesome diagram of where metal names come from.

Now, please enjoy the greatest (worst) heavy metal video of all time, accompanied by the greatest (worst) cardboard stage props, greatest (worst) lyrics and song title spelling by a former Kiss guitarist in history. Let’s put it this way: I thought it was ridiculous when I was 18, and that was the same year I paid to see Stryper. The video quality isn’t good but you might want to look at that as a good thing. Your retinas aren’t as likley to burn. Speaking of burning, please, for your own sake, watch all the way through until you witness a man wearing a jumpsuit and helmet inexplicably catching fire and running across the stage. It’s really the way all videos should end.
