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.
