Music Video of the Day: Bad is Bad by Huey Lewis and the News (1984, directed by ????)


Today’s music video features a linguistic lesson from Huey Lewis.

Perhaps realizing that a generation was being raised to think that “bad” was the proper way to describe something as being cool, Huey uses this song to remind his fans that sometimes, bad just means that something’s bad.  Sometimes, your cousin plays the guitar and it sounds like chainsaw.  Sometimes, there’s a strange pair of shows under the bed.  Sometimes, bad is bad.

To make their point, the band performs the song while walking around the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco.  What better way was there to do that?  It’s not every day that you see Huey Lewis and the News walking behind a garbage truck.

Enjoy!
