Top 10 NSFW Music Videos of 2012

Top 10 NSFW Music Videos of 2012
5. El-P
"The Full Retard"

It's nothing new to force cute plush puppets into adult situations (see Meet the Feebles or Avenue Q), but thankfully El-P skimps out on the campy theatre aesthetics for his grimy "The Full Retard." The clip has him and an eye-patching-sporting squirrel getting into all sorts of mischief, with the felt furball pelting people with eggs, feeling up prostitutes and puking at a nightclub party. Rumour has it half the budget on the vid was spent on the dry-cleaning bill for the little fella.



4. Sigur Rós
"Fjögur Píanó"

Let's just cut the shit, this is on here because we get to see Transformers actor Shia LaBeouf's penis in it. The Valtari cut gets treated to an artistic clip full of serene visuals surrounding a tragic and confusing love story. But, like we said, it gets the NSFW tag because, well, Shia brings the beef to his beloved. Consider this just a teaser to his upcoming role in Nymphomaniac.



3. Amanda Palmer & the Grand Theft Orchestra
"Want It Back"

Theatrical rock wonder Amanda Palmer bared it all for her fans a few times this year. On top of helping out the Flaming Lips with a bathtub-bound performance (see entry No. 2), the musician also got her naked body all inked up for her own track, "Want It Back." The video features each and every lyric being scrawled somewhere, from city walls to her bandmate's forearms, but the video is bookended with shots of Palmer having her words sensually scrawled from head to toe, and everything in between. Eventually there's an inky eruption all over her skin-canvas. Oddly, it's somehow both messier and more low-key than her equally sexed-up party clip "Do It with a Rockstar."



2. The Flaming Lips
"The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face" (ft. Erykah Badu, Amanda Palmer)

The Flaming Lips caused some controversy with their Heady Fwends-promoting clip for "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face." Erykah Badu, who sang on the cut, raised ire with Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne over the clip, which showed her sister Nayrok writhing around in a bathtub, with her naked body getting covered in glitter, cum and blood. Coyne responded in kind by making a Mach 2 vid with Amanda Palmer wiggling around in a crystal clear pool of water, wearing nothing but her birthday suit. It's, well, just as naked, but the scrubbed-up clip lacks the eye-popping ooey-gooeyness of the original offender.





1. Sebastien Tellier
"Cochon Ville"

French pop player Sebastien Tellier, the guy who once gave us an album called Sexuality, delivered one of the most erotically charged NSFW videos of the year via "Cochon Ville." Who would have figured? What starts off as a simple performance clip from Tellier and his group of robe-adorned grand wizards for the My God Is Blue track soon reveals that the club they're playing is likely situated somewhere in the second circle of hell. A cast of carnal malefactors gleefully get it on in front of the performers, though one woman seems particularly ho-hum about her current round of from-behind butt play. Elsewhere, a perv snaps a Flying V beaver shot with his Polaroid, a woman soaks her silky breasts with a couple jugs of milk, and we can only assume the sight of one dude's sizable, silvery dong is causing the surrounding jaws to drop in awe. If, like Tellier, the whole scene causes you to spurt gold confetti out of your throbbing gennies, you should probably see a specialist ASAP.
