Once in a while, a work turns out to be so bad, it creates a disruption in the badness continuum, and wraps right around to good. Rather than it unintentionally BreakingTheFourthWall like usual, something about the specifics of the work in question instead cause an enjoyable, though equally unintended, emotional response in the viewing public. Maybe the [[SpecialEffectFailure hubcap-on-a-wire flying saucers]] are cute, or the spontaneous brothel scene goes on for [[OverlyLongGag so long it's hilarious]], or the technically oriented [[{{Narm}} find humor]] in the way the [[PlayfulHacker hacker]] can [[EverythingIsOnline suborn the traffic lights of New York]] with no perceptible effort.

Something which is So Bad It's Good has a high probability of becoming a CultClassic and, in this day and age, a FountainOfMemes. Many are heavy on {{Camp}}, therefore falling far onto the silly side of the SlidingScaleOfSillinessVersusSeriousness, and are often considered GuiltyPleasures, although neither is necessary. See NarmCharm. This is also often seen in MemeticMutation, when people combine two or more horrible things (or pieces thereof) into something good. LeeroyJenkins, for example.

'''Additional note:''' The French cinephile community has come up with the word "nanar" to represent this concept, which is considered as a legitimate movie genre in this country where cinema was born.

* Many who dislike British conceptual artist Damien Hirst see him as this; there's just something disgustingly delightful about factory-made 'artworks' that were paid for in thousands of pounds just for the sake of making a splash. Really, one of his most famous 'works' is a skull studded entirely with diamonds. What's not to love? A review of the diamond-studded object also did a pretty good job of showcasing art politics, claiming that if anyone else made it, it would be horribly tacky, but because Damien Hirst made it it's a work of genius.
** Nothing can ever top the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Physical_Impossibility_of_Death_in_the_Mind_of_Someone_Living rotting, dead shark in a tank full of formaldehyde]]. Really, the whole of Young British Artists can be seen as this, especially Damien Hirst's and Tracey Emin's works. There is even an entire movement called Stuckism that is against this kind of art. Stuckism was founded by Billy Childish (from Thee Headcoats) and Charles Thomson in 1999 and is still going strong.

* WCW's San Francisco 49ers Match between Wrestling/JeffJarrett and Wrestling/BookerT is one of the most hilariously stupid matches of all time. It's a glorified pole match (something Wrestling/VinceRusso [[AuthorAppeal was fond of]]) with 4 wooden boxes at the end of each pole; 1 contains the [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/wcw/wcw-h.html WCW World Heavyweight Championship]] belt and the other 3 contain "weapons:" a blow up doll, a framed picture of Wrestling/ScottHall, and a coal miner's glove. It began with an old lady trying to smack Jarrett with a shirt Wrestling/BookerT gave her and ended with Beetlejuice (not ''that'' Film/{{Beetlejuice}}, the Wack Packer from ''Radio/TheHowardSternShow'') giving Jarrett 5 [[GroinAttack "high blows"]]. The title fell out of the box, and Booker T became the WCW Champion. When the belt fell out, David Penzer had to hand it to Booker. Thankfully, Russo wasn't sharp enough to change the finish and award the title to Penzer instead.

** You can't have The Final Deletion without [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2jzScgAhSt0 the infamous contract signing]] that drew attention to this nutty feud in the first place. Matt Hardy's opening address, the random music choices, the inexplicable acknowledgement of the gardener, Reby throwing a baby doll at Jeff, and Matt plunging Jeff in overwrought slow-mo through a rickety looking table that was randomly set up next to their ring. Surviving this without laughing is above most men (and of course you can't forget the MemeticMutation that is "BROTHER NERO").

* The 1955 musical ''Ankles Aweigh'' was the kind of vaudeville sister-act vehicle that was such a throwback at the time of its production that its publicity campaign didn't try to hide it. The score is a total ClicheStorm, from the OpeningChorus to TheElevenOClockNumber titled "An Eleven O'Clock Song." When the show was revived in the 1989 by the Goodspeed Opera House, it was [[ParodyRetcon rewritten as a parody of musicals]].

* Referenced in Todd van der Werff's reviews for ''Website/AVClub'': he has said that he considers a D grade to be worse than an F, because an F is so extraordinary in its horribleness that it is almost worth watching for that achievement, whereas a D is merely forgettable and dull.
** SNL's Victoria Jackson had a similar guide to interpreting ratings. Three stars meant the movie was great; "They don't make 'em any better." Four stars was more iffy; the movie might not be so good, but it could be. Two stars is the worst rating you can give a movie; these are the worst of the worst. And one star is "pretty good, too." Pretty easy to see the humor; four stars means it's an "art" movie made primarily for critics and culture snobs (but still might be good), whereas two stars meant bad and not interesting, and one star indicates this trope.

(For example, the early ''Franchise/MegaMan'' games have box art widely considered to be hilariously ugly, while the games themselves are thought of as some of the best platformers ever made.) Why? Because this website is unfair in that it only allows some opinions but not others, and also doesn't understand the hypocrisy of having [[TheComplainerIsAlwaysWrong articles]] [[QualityByPopularVote like]] [[AppealToPopularity these]] while also making the rules of this page the way they are. Also, it does ''not'' mean GuiltyPleasure. If people find merit in a widely derided work instead of relishing its flaws, then it's NarmCharm or CriticalBacklash.

Added DiffLines:

* Overlapping with TrollingCreator, [[http://www.yacpdb.org/#295577 this chess problem.]] [[labelnote:If you never heard of chess problems but are dying to understand the joke]]Generically speaking, a chess problem should have a surprising key and thus it is bad to use game-like keys that give check, take a flight, capture an enemy or promote to queen. Of course, an experienced solver [[IKnowYouKnowIKnow knows]] ...and is the more surprised, since both sides are in zugzwang and the new mate on king to f8 is easily overlooked. The trick also works in solving competitions.[[/labelnote]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''Anime/KirbyRightBackAtYa'', ''Dedede: Comin' At Ya'' (King Dedede's animated series from "Cartoon Buffoon") winds up as this for the people of Cappytown. Tiff even calls this trope by name to describe it.

Added DiffLines:

* ''WebAnimation/WolfSongTheMovie'' is a feature-length animated web-film about wolf characters. However, it doesn't have the best animation out there, many of the designs don't mesh with the rest of the cast (including [[AmazingTechnicolorWildlife yellow colored wolves]] and [[AccessoryWearingCartoonAnimal earring-wearing wolves]]), and the plot is a haphazard mix of various animal fantasy tropes. However, it still has its amusing elements and it's impressive to see a feature-length animation.

Added DiffLines:

* As far as wrestling announcers are concerned, [[Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance NWA]] Mid-Atlantic’s David Crockett will never be compared to greats like Wrestling/GordonSolie or Lance Russell. When he’s not screaming at the top of his lungs during an unexpected or exciting turn of events, he’s muttering obvious statements (“uh … look at him, [[Wrestling/TonySchiavone Tony]]”). Yet his enthusiasm is so infectious that his attempts at commentary can sometimes be downright ''enjoyable''.


* ''WebVideo/{{Kickassia}}'': A group of over-acting non-actors in a silly plot about internet reviewers from Website/ThatGuyWithTheGlasses taking over a tiny {{micronation}} in Nevada. The ridiculous nature of the film is largely entirely deliberate. The same is true for the following film, ''WebVideo/SuburbanKnights''.
