2. Limp Bizkit - "Behind Blue Eyes"

God, where to even start with this piece of shit? I guess I should start back in 1997 when Limp Bizkit's career took off with their cover of George Michael's "Faith." Things were looking pretty grim for the Bizkit in 2003, so they decided to cover another iconic song. They went with The Who's 1971 classic "Behind Blue Eyes." They somehow roped Halle Berry into appearing in the video, possibly using actual rope. It's hard to imagine why else she thought it was a good idea. Just when you think the video couldn't get any worse, Fred Durst and Halle Berry have a really gross make-out session while a Speak N Spell spells out Limp Bizkit. It's one of the worst moments in the history of anything.
