What's your favorite "so bad it's good" media? Music, anime, or anything else. It's something I can't get enough of.
My go-to "bad" movie is Smokin' Stogies. It's (I think?) supposed to be a parody of mob films, but it's so strangely edited, the plot is so bizarre, and the acting is so awkward, that I honestly can't be sure.
It's a blast to watch and I can easily recommend it to anyone who likes low-budget movies like this.

Cats (2019) is utterly a mess, nothing makes sense. It's so bad that every scene will have different kinds of jellicle shits for you to question your life choices. It will haunt you. At least you will have lots of fun watching this with friends (just don't sleep alone at night).

Holy shit I literally came here to post Cats and there it is, two minutes prior hahaha

Yeah, this is peak for me. It's unbelievable how a Hollywood studio produced film can come out this awful. Nothing is good about it, it is an utter failure from start to finish. Me and my sister caught it in a theater on New Years Day 2020 at Disney World and it was such an unforgettable viewing experience. I asked for two tickets and the lady said "Are you sure?" Trying to hide our laughter from the ladies trying to watch a row in front of us was so hard and so fun as more and more horrible moments spewed onscreen. What a fucking shit show. 10/10, I've seen it like six times.

I'm trying to think of some video games that fit the bill, but outside of Goat Simulator(which was made to emulate this). Most games fit into the "just bad" category if they screw up and the "so bad it's good" comes more from watching people suffer through them than actually playing the game yourself. The closest I had to actually experiencing this in a video game was on a game called Digimon: Data squad on the PS2 that my brothers and I railed on while I was playing for being a slow, easy, generic JRPG with bad voice acting where it wasn't uncommon to fill the requirements for multiple Digi-evolutions in the same fight. I don't think it would be a good recommend since it would just be boring to most people.

I am, however aware of a vidya OST that fits the bill, the Evergrace soundtrack.

This is the same composer for Armored Core 6 btw, he actually starts to transition into the Armored Core 4+ sound during the sequel

Actually now that I've thought about it a bit more, I unironically like Shadow the Hedgehog so I suppose there is that.

Sonic 06, watching my friend who knew every way to break that game was a real treat. Some glitches are hilariously janky while others are genuinely interesting as they let you access cut/unfinished portions of the game. The only thing that truly sucks is the long loading times.

Honorable mention to Driv3r, which is basically a liminal space simulator. NPC spawns are messed up in some areas of the game and they just fall from the sky and drop dead, eerie stuff.

I'd say Rouge Warrior fits the bill. Based on a book by Richard Pachinko has all the hallmarks of a bad 1st person shooter with mediocre graphics, terrible AI, terrible gunplay, story and more. What makes the game is just how over the top ""badass"" Richard is, along with the game spamming his hilariously terrible "badass quotes", you get one every time you kill an enemy. Worth a playthrough for a laugh but I wouldn't exactly pay for it.

(bunch of funny over the top swearing, truly requires an age restrict)

1. Rosa de Guadalupe. Hilariously moralistic Mexican soap opera that often doesn't have any idea what's talking about. It has an episode on Blue Whale btw. It's so melodramatic it's genuinely funny.

2.Citruss. Horny yuri incest anime. Whereas Rosa de Guadalupe is conservative, Citruss is like the opposite, going out of it's way to try and justify incest. It's also really melodramatic and the plot points are just as ridiculous.

Fun fact. My HS friends and I used to hold double feature sessions where we would watch an episode of Rosa de Guadalupe and then an episode of Citruss. That taught me that human stupidity transcends culture and medium.

3.Sharknado. Uh, I'm not sure if this one is actually one of my guilty pleasures at this point.

I wouldn't even call WKCA a so bad it's good movie, when you consider the conditions it was made under and how unique it is as far as action movies go, it's worth something on its own merits, even if it comes off as more of a comedy film to westerners than an action film

The real question is... WKCA or Bad Black? Personally, WKCA is funnier, but Bad Black realizes the vision way better. It incorporates the DJ's voice over narration in a way that serves the story, and that I haven't seen done in any other film. Both films are an experience beyond 'haha bad movie funny'

I've heard a lot of anime fans complain about this anime. What's so bad about it though? Never seen it btw but I'm curious
The plot is that a guy hires a prostitute to be his (platonic) gf, falls in love with her, and desperately tries to keep up the fantasy even as it becomes abundantly clear that she does not love him and sees him only as a source of income. He's probably one of the most pathetic male protagonists in all of anime and that is REALLY saying something considering the endless mass of self-insert harem isekai out there
