> Hey everyone,
> I'm just curious.. what were some of the most controversial music videos made? and why?
: I was thinking of this because of the new Madonna video, and the fact that MTV would only play it once.. and i was remembering the stink raised by Michael Jackson's car-smashing scence at the end of 'Black and White'.. any other choice controversies you can think of?
> Thanks
