12 Music Videos We Probably Shouldn't Have Been Allowed To Watch As Kids

They don't put an age rating on music videos like they do on movies, so during the glory days of MTV and music videos in general, this meant that we got to see some things that, when looking back on it, we probably shouldn't have been allowed to.

Whether it's disturbing imagery, weird themes, or sometimes so much bare skin we're amazed the video wasn't sponsored by Playboy, these 12 videos were definitely a little too mature for us to be watching as kids.

Pretty sure puberty hit us all like a ton of bricks after seeing the video for Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty"

Or if not that, then Britney's "I'm A Slave 4 U"

The members (heh) of Blink-182 weren't shy about themselves in the video for "What's My Age Again?"

DJ Eric Prydz's remix of "Call on Me" was pretty much an excuse to show girls in leotards.

N.E.R.D. were anything but subtle with the music video for "Lapdance."

The videos just get more intense from here...

The imagery and general weirdness of Nirvana's "Heart-Shaped Box" were waaaaaaaay too messed up

Madonna was always trying to be provocative, especially in the 80s.

Motorhead went the extra mile to shock and impress the heavy metal world in their video for "Killed By Death"

Benny Benassi's infectious "Satisfaction" got a music video that was... satisfying to many.

Tool's "Sober" was way too much for us as kids, because it was just so freaking creepy!

Nelly's video for "Tip Drill" is probably still the raunchiest thing ever filmed that isn't meant purely for adults.

Which of these videos do you remember watching when you were way too young?

The 'Dawson's Creek' Cast Reunited And It'll Make You Wish You Could Go Back To Capeside

Dawson's Creek was one of the most iconic shows on television in the 90s. It was basically all of our first glimpses of what teen drama looked like, and even though our lives were nothing like those of Capeside, we sure felt like we were a part of it. Personally, I was always a fan of Joey Potter. She had such an interesting backstory and I felt really bad that she lost her mother. I was always on Team Pacey too, so the fact that they ended up together was everything we wanted. Dawson's career obviously turned out okay and


Founder Of Toys 'R' Us, Charles Lazarus, Has Passed Away At 94

Going to Toys 'R' Us was literally the highlight of our childhood. Each and everyone of us would run through those sliding doors and would immediately turn into little Tasmanian devils and tear through the store as though we had no knowledge of manners. The reason that we got to enjoy this epic experience was because of Charles Lazarus. Lazarus founded his company in 1948 and every since he has watched his company grow. That is, until this week. The first toy store he opened was not called Toys 'R' Us, but instead "Children's Bargain Town." He knew that the


10 Snacks From Your Childhood That You Didn't Realize You Can Still Get Today

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
