1. The Vapors, "Turning Japanese" (1980)
The one-hit wonder by the English new wave band opens with a Far Eastern guitar riff and the video only gets worse from there as every Japanese cliche imaginable makes a cameo, from Geisha girls to tea houses to samurai swords.
2. Styx, "Mr. Roboto" (1983)
The classic rock band's cheeky hit - with that famous Japanese chorus - invoked troubling stereotypes of "Yellow Peril," depicting threatening-looking robots with the exaggerated facial features of Japanese caricatures.
