You know it's an 80's music video when the visuals are dated and the music is timeless
You can quote me on that

Is it just me or is there a faint “we built this city” right before the song starts?

The sad part about this being the supposed "worst" song of the 80s...is it's still better then 90% of the shit we get in the recent 00's and 2010's

When our children ask.. "What happened to the ozone layer?" We will have to show them this video and say this is what happened. The hairspray in this video was the cause.

The reason people hate this song is because they can't separate Starship from Jefferson Airplane in their minds. Same reason why people who liked the Bee Gees in the '60s hated them in the late '70s. Hard for some folks to accept that bands can make great songs in vastly different styles than they originally became famous for. This is one of those songs I used to like ironically, because everyone else hated it. Now I see what a fool I was, because this tune is awesome!
