My Top 100 Favourite Music Videos: #61

#61: "I Want You So Hard (Boy's Bad News)" - Eagles of Death Metal
Release Date: 2006
Director: Akiva Schaffer
Fun Fact: The song has been covered live by none other than Meat Loaf!
Oh god this video is just hilarious. I don't know if it's the silly concept that doing guitar solos takes all of your clothes off and makes you aroused or if it's the hilarious wigs worn by Josh Homme, Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters and Jack Black of Tenacious D - I mean look at Jack Black in that picture above! He looks so bad in that wig it's good! I just love this video and I really think that anyone who hasn't seen this video before needs to see it quite frankly, if you have a sense of humour.

Two more facts are that the video was directed by Kiv from The Lonely Island (who will feature in this list again), and that the last guy at the end who loses his clothes in the business suit with the case plays as Richardson in the film Hot Rod, which was also directed by Kiv and features The Lonely Island, and Josh Homme actually. Also, Meat Loaf plays Jack Black's dad in the Tenacious D film The Pick of Destiny... what a connection game this music video is!

Here's the video for your enjoyment!
