I'm sure you've all seen rap and hip-hop videos at some point through random interneting or television ambience. There's rap and hip hop music videos that feature dancing strippers liberally because the topic at hand is usually "banging up dem hoes". And the music is very upbeat and "groovy" so the dancing girls motif works well.

I listen to a lot of death metal and the music is too angry/evil to properly accommodate any sort of vibe that would warrant dancing skanky girls as set-dressing. I can't imagine slutty dancers in a Cannibal Corpse or Deicide video, it just wouldn't work.

I found a song by the incredibly mainstream and entry-level (but still decent) Lamb of God that still sounds "angry" and metally enough BUT still features dancing stripper-girls and it doesn't look or feel out of place.

This was pretty cool, because it still felt angry and metal enough but the dancing girls worked perfectly. My question is: does anyone know of other bands that can pull this off?

Rough, angry, metal music that has slutty dancers as set-dressing the way a rap artist usually has?

Do the words Heavy Metal mean anything to you other than buttcore, technical progressive assgrind or the like?

can't go wrong with Hopkins from Cathedral! Lucifera Vampirella!

Definitely not angry though! Probably way too chilled out for you, but it definitely leapt to mind when you were asking for skanky chicks in metal videos.

A lot of Danzig's videos are like that.
