Soundgarden, ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ – Banned Music Videos

Soundgarden, 'Jesus Christ Pose'

Religion is always a touchy subject when attempting to create an artistic statement. Grunge legends Soundgarden were placed in the crosshairs of political correctness after releasing their video for ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ in 1991.

From the band’s 1991 album, ‘Badmotorfinger,’ the music video showcased a stupendous amount of crosses, both right-side-up and upside down, along with crucifixions of a woman, a skeleton and vegetables crucified in human form. With various Christian viewers misunderstanding the song and video as anti-Christian, even leading to Soundgarden receiving death threats for ‘Jesus Christ Pose.’ MTV banned ‘Jesus Christ Pose’ in 1991, and has reportedly never been shown on the channel since.
