Top 10 | Cheesiest Music Videos

From special effects straight out of a middle-school science fair to over-enthusiastic choreographies in balloon pants (we’re looking at you oddly-permed boy bands); green screen disasters; magnificent, windswept mullets; and jeans so tight it’s a wonder they didn’t affect an entire generation’s fertility; this countdown as all the gooey, cheesy goodness you’ll want to watch over, and over again.

Rencontre avec les rappeurs de l’heure, c’est-à-dire Dead Obies. C’est avec des fous rires et sous forme de jeu que nous découvrons qui est le plus baveux, le plus drôle, le plus torturé ou même le plus « Diva »! On découvre les artistes qu’ils respectent, on en apprend sur leur dynamique de groupe et ils nous révèlent leurs habitudes avant de monter sur scène. Bref, un bel entretien « Straight up »!

Our Lady Peace | Stingray PausePlay

Our Lady Peace returns after a 6-year absence with Maida behind the mixing console and keeping things old school and simple. Needless to say, the sound of OLP still survives and is stronger than ever. Their latest album, Somethingness, hits all the right feels. All the elements you might expect from these Canadian legends remain but are propelled forward with a production twist a la 2018. Our Lady Peace is polished, clean, and focused. Make sure to give their album a listen, from start to finish.
