21. “Relax” by Frankie Goes To Hollywood (1983)
The song itself was banned by the BBC for it’s over-the-top sexual lyrics, so it stands to reason that the video never stood a chance. The first version featured the band being accosted by leather-wearing men at a gay nightclub. The video was promptly banned from not only the Beeb, but also MTV as well. We’re guessing it may have had something to do with the implied “golden-shower” by the dude dressed up as a Roman emperor.
20. “Reach Out” by Hilary Duff (2007)
What’s the quickest way to shed your Disney princess image and jumpstart your flagging singing career at the same time? Release a ridiculously sexy music video, of course! No, literally, the clip for Duff’s rethinking of ” Depeche Mode‘s “Personal Jesus” is actually pretty absurd. So in the end a censored version of the video was recut for television broadcast.
