Adam 12

11am - 4 pm

The alt-rock explosion of the ’90s gave the MTV generation plenty of great music video moments…and a handful of weird ones.


That’s what we’re focusing on in this week’s 12 Inch Poll. I’ve put together a short list of ten music videos from the ’90s that are iconic but also have some semblance of “cringe” to them. Scroll through the lot below, then vote for the one you think is the cringiest (I just made that word up, I think). You can also hit up ROCK 92.9 on Facebook and Twitter to let me know if I missed anything.
