File:"The Thunder Rolls" - Garth Brooks

The Thunder Rolls was banned from CMT and TNN for its portrayal of domestic violence. The wife in the video is given a black eye from an unfaithful husband, which their child witnesses. The video to the single does have a scene where the woman kills her husband (played by Brooks), while he and his band play in the rain outside of their house. The clip also contains scenes suggesting that domestic abuse has played a large part in their lives, thus giving the wife more motive than the song suggests. The video won Music Video of the Year at the 1991 CMA Awards.
