They don't put an age rating on music videos like they do on movies, so during the glory days of MTV and music videos in general, this meant that we got to see some things that, when looking back on it, we probably shouldn't have been allowed to.
Whether it's disturbing imagery, weird themes, or sometimes so much bare skin we're amazed the video wasn't sponsored by Playboy, these 12 videos were definitely a little too mature for us to be watching as kids.
Pretty sure puberty hit us all like a ton of bricks after seeing the video for Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty"
Or if not that, then Britney's "I'm A Slave 4 U"
The members (heh) of Blink-182 weren't shy about themselves in the video for "What's My Age Again?"
DJ Eric Prydz's remix of "Call on Me" was pretty much an excuse to show girls in leotards.
N.E.R.D. were anything but subtle with the music video for "Lapdance."
The videos just get more intense from here...
The imagery and general weirdness of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" were waaaaaaaay too messed up
Madonna was always trying to be provocative, especially in the 80s.
Motorhead went the extra mile to shock and impress the heavy metal world in their video for "Killed By Death"
Benny Benassi's infectious "Satisfaction" got a music video that was... satisfying to many.
Tool's "Sober" was way too much for us as kids, because it was just so freaking creepy!
Nelly's video for "Tip Drill" is probably still the raunchiest thing ever filmed that isn't meant purely for adults.
Which of these videos do you remember watching when you were way too young?
As a kid, there was nothing more important than Saturday morning cartoons. Specifically the set of programming we all know and loved that was called One Saturday Morning. It was by far the best programming on TV and there was something for everyone. You want some elementary school kids fighting over hierarchy in the playground? They had it. You want middle school kids living their weekend life? Absolutely there! Even if you want some new original Disney shows based on your favorite content, those were there too! It literally had everything you could ever want. There were of course a
Crash Bandicoot took the video game world by storm when it first came out in 1996. It was one of the first to use the 3D style and was just super fun. Crash Bandicoot's first game was released for the original Playstation, but it has continued on over the years. They are bringing it back once again, but this time it's going to be something a little bit familiar. Instead of a brand new adventure, you will be able to bring all three of your favorite Crash Bandicoot games to your PS4 with The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. It
We all know and love Cabbage Patch Kids right? They are cute, cuddly and adorable. Then there are the Garbage Pail Kids. They are not cute, not cuddly, and adorable but probably almost as popular. These horrifyingly bizarre creations were made as sort of the parody of the Cabbage Patch Kids. They were specifically designed to be as disgusting and offensive as possible (in contrast to their inspiration) which was 100% their appeal. This was of course before the Cabbage Patch Dolls became terrifying enough on their own.Parents hated them, schools despised them, but kids were obsessed. In 1987
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Luc Besson's The Fifth Element. The sci-fi blockbuster has been polarizing to say the least, and it's been called both the best and worst summer blockbuster movie of all time. Personally, it's one of my all time favorite movies. It's funny, it's weird, and it gives us a believably grimy future world that actually looks like it'd be fun to live in. Considering I saw it in theaters when it came out, the fact that it's been 20 years since its release makes me die a little on the inside. This does, however,
