Playmates have always been the poster girls of beauty, so it’s no surprise that they’ve lent their good looks and charming personalities to the music industry. You may remember some of these girls from some of your favorite ’80s metal hair band music videos of the past, rap songs of the early 2000s or even those catchy punk songs from that era too. Whether the videos are all about Playboy or just about beautiful women, there’s no denying our girls are the best for the job. Here are some of our favorite Playmate music video cameos we’ve come across over the years.
February 2009’s Playmate of the Month Jessica Burciaga lends her beauty to Jamie Foxx for his hit single “Fall for Your Type” featuring Drake.
There’s no denying that Jaime Edmonson has done a lot in her life, from working as a police officer to cheering on the Miami Dolphins as a cheerleader, so it was no surprise that our beautiful January 2010 Playmate of the Month would star in Trace Adkins’ “This Ain’t No Love Song.”
Not only was she on the cover of the Zebrahead album, 2000’s Playmate of the Year Jodi Ann Paterson also starred in the video for Zebrahead’s fittingly named song “Playmate of the Year.” Did you know the video also appeared as an extra on the Playboy 2001 Video Playmate Calendar?
June 1980’s Playmate of the Month Ola Ray starred in the classic video for Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” as Michael Jackson’s girlfriend. Pretty cool gig, right?
Playmates Jeana Tomasino and Kymberly Herrin became synonymous with ZZ Top after playing the roles of two out of the three band Muses in the songs “Gimme All Your Lovin’,” “Sharp Dressed Man” and “Legs.”
After much secrecy, Lillian Müller outed herself as the overly bodacious chemistry teacher in the Van Halen classic “Hot for Teacher.” If 1976’s Playmate of the Year were our prof, we’d be hot for her too!
Lit will go down in history as the only band to ever play an entire set on Pamela Anderson’s butt for their music video “Miserable.” That’s a pretty cool record to hold, right?
First appearing in Playboy as Playmate of the Month in October 1982, Marianne Gravatte soon won the hearts of the nation and was titled 1983’s Playmate of the Year. She’s appeared in three music videos, most notably in American heavy metal band Ratt’s video for their hit song “Lay It Down.”
Playmate of the Year 2005 Tiffany Fallon may be married to country star Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts, but her debut in the country scene was when she starred in Toby Keith’s video for “Who’s Your Daddy?”
Kendra, Holly and Bridget will always go down in history as the original Girls Next Door, but did you know they were in Nickelback’s video for the song “Rockstar”? Take a close look.
Rod Stewart once asked the question, “Do Ya Think I’m Sexy?” And Lillian Müller agreed.
While the Mansion isn’t exactly in Beverly Hills (geographically speaking), it was home to the Weezer revival song “Beverly Hills.” And what’s the Mansion if it’s not full of Playmates? September 2004 Playmate of the Month Scarlett Keegan stars.
This video is kind of like Where’s Waldo for adults. Can you spot and name all of the Playmates in Nelly and Justin Timberlake’s music video “Work It”? If you’re having trouble, check out the uncensored version; their lack of clothing may make them easier to spot.
This gorgeous blonde was not only June 2005’s Playmate of the Month, she also appeared on the cover the following year when Kara Monaco was named Playmate of the Year! In the same year, she starred in Willie Wisely’s video “Stayin’ Home Again.”
Pam Anderson stars in then-husband Tommy Lee’s music video for “Get Naked.” We’re happy she obliged.
June 2004 Playmate Hiromi Oshima melts our hearts, especially when she’s shakin’ her tailfeather in Nelly’s music videos.
