Manson Beats Jackson To Scariest Video Top Spot

MARILYN MANSON has beaten MICHAEL JACKSON to the top of a Halloween-related online poll to find the Scariest Music Video ever made.
The shock rocker's 1999 promo for his cover of the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) has spooked the editors of Billboard.com so much they've picked the video as their most chilling.
They state, "When he (Manson) donned a ballerina costume and cut himself, rode a pig and convulsed uncontrollably in the video... he really freaked people out."
The video beat Jackson's Thriller to the top spot, while Aphex Twin's Come To Daddy was third. Ozzy Osbourne's werewolf video for Bark At The Moon and Fever Ray's If I Had A Heart round out the top five.

Thriller wasn't so much about scary as it was about transformation, a hot beat and dance like no other...all issues important to MJ throughout his life. Halloween was his favorite holiday too...Love you soooooo much...miss you soooo much!

Video clips made since Thriller are quite often simply grotesque which is what makes them scary. MJ's clip was art and cannot be compared to these other attempts.

Manson may have the crudest scary video, but Michael Jackson's video was mean to be fun and so it's understandable that since the word "scary" is a relative term, young voters chose Manson in the poll. Jackson's Thriller video will of course always remain the best overall video that is neither occult nor offensive. RIP Mr. Jackson...you are missed.

MJ's thriller didn't top the best selling album of all time for no reason, it wasn't the traditional scary clip. Let's see if in 25 year Manson's clip would still be in people's minds! R.I.P king of pop.Still no one could match up with your genius.
