Yeah, it's a terrible video but what could be more SF than a song about an alien that comes to earth, eats people, and is defeated by his fear of guitars?

not at all interesting story about this video: As a kid, I never saw it aside from brief clips on "K-Tel" commercials. It never happened to be on MTV when I was watching through my teens, but people constantly told me I "Just missed it."

Technically not SF but fantasy, but check this weirdness out:

This show was popular with all my little friends when I was around 6, but of course none of us knew or remembered the title, we just called it "Miss Tickle" after the protagonist lady. I remember being confused as to who "Rick" was. He showed up in every episode prominently, and sang a song as well as the theme, and it was like we were supposed to know who he was or something, but of course no one did.
