Vanished Videos – She’s A Beauty by The Tubes

This one meets all the qualifications: spooky, dark, Twilight Zone ending. I saw this one when I was very young. Did it corrupt me? Only I and my browser history know for sure. Here’s “She’s A Beauty” by The Tubes.

  1. The Doc says:

    Yeah this is one of those “classic” videos that you always bring up when you are talking about the heydays of MTV. You always start with “Video Killed The Radio Star”, you then go to “She’s a Beauty”, and you inevitably end with Michael Jackson’s “Thriller”.

    I thought after just listening to the song only that it had one meaning. Then after seeing the video, it was clear that there was hidden meaning there. Whoever wrote that song clearly would like mean things to happen to their ex!

    Thanks for bringing this one back Doug!

  2. I think I was eight when this came out. As a young girl it infused me with fear.

    I still kind of like the song. Damnit, misogynistic beats that kind of rock! ;-)
