Warning: this video contains explicit content.
Named by MTV the most controversial video ever aired on the network, “Smack My B—- Up” depicts a whirlwind first-person night on the town gone horribly wrong. Not only do some say the song’s lyrics promote violence, but also, the video includes sex with prostitutes, cocaine use, female nudity, drunken driving and violence against women. For the video, the Prodigy was accused of misogyny and glorification of violence despite its twist ending (hint: the protagonist is a woman), and the video was initially banned from television. However, fans demanded that MTV show the video, so the network relented and included the song on an after-hours countdown.
