Music Video of the Day: Headed for a Heartbreak by Winger (1989, directed by Mark Rezyka)


As Butt-Head once put it, while watching this very video, “His teeth are whiter than white.”

As far as commercial success goes, Winger had a brief but good run in the late 80s.  Then grunge came along and the musical landscape changed for the better.  Winger later found fame as the favorite band of Stewart Stevenson on Beavis and Butt-Head.  It was rumored that Winger became Stewart’s favorite band after Kip Winger complained about his videos being criticized by Beavis and Butt-Head.  It’s always better to laugh at yourself than to complain because being associated with Stewart is what really robbed Winger of whatever credibility they had.  Of course, it didn’t help that Lars Ulrich was seen throwing darts at Kip Winger’s face in the video for Nothing Else Matters.

This video is typical Winger stuff.  Kip sings that he’s headed for a heartbreak and you don’t believe him for a minute.

Enjoy!
