Sometimes it's fascinating to see the worst we can find. In a "look at the horrible car crash" kind of way.
This list is going to be devoted, at least in spirit if not as a strict rule, to videos that've already been submitted once, died a horrible death - preferably by downvotes - and face a repeated beating.
There should be some sick amusement from the idiocy exhibited in the subject matter, of course.
Consider it an Absolutely Awful Cousin of my Controversies list.

A special place to list videos that are a vote away from being promoted. Play Sift Programming Director if you like them, because you'll be sending them up to the Front Page immediately unless someone sneaks in a downvote.
We reserve the right to include worthy 7 to 8 vote vids when running short on 9's.

Tribute to videos that reference drug consumption - real, imagined, or allegorical.

Lightning rod videos - those that have generated some of the biggest debates and most heat at the Sift, either in the form of downvotes or comments.
I find this to be an interesting place to showcase videos that reveal something about the "group psyche" of VideoSift: examples of videos which may or may not be particularly welcome here, or which generate some sort of strong response.
To keep things interesting, there's also some examples of videos that may not be particularly outrageous, but which incidentally drew drawn-out arguments and debates over topics both serious and silly.

A playlist for videos that are not only NSFW, but almost artistic in their ability to take profanities and violence and make them something to look forward. The very best of Samuel L Jackson, super-colourful descriptions of absolute stark horror and the like.
Swearing/violence/nudity just because it's there doesn't qualify for this list - videos where you're almost tempted to all it art show up here.
Definitely not for kids!
