We’re getting into the spooky spirit by coming up with costume ideas and maybe even more importantly, planning our party playlists! Naturally, we were reminded of all the creepy music videos from some of our favorite artists.
Who’s the scariest of them all? Check out our picks!
10. Wall To Wall — Chris Brown
Believe it or not, but it was actually Breezy who first brought vampires back into the mainstream in 2007.
9. Everybody — Backstreet Boys
When it comes to Halloween-themed music videos, we have a soft spot for this oldie but goodie!
Mummies, werewolves, vampires…it’s got it all.
And we’d cry like a little girl too if we had to deal with that freaky bus driver!
8. I Need A Doctor — Dr. Dre feat. Eminem & Skylar Grey
The haunting melody is already weird enough, but the music video takes it a step further.
Dr. Dre’s life literally flashes before his eyes after he gets into a massive car wreck and it’s up to Eminem and Skylar Grey to bring him back to life in this weird medieval hospital chamber.
7. Invisible — Clay Aiken
Okay, this music video may not seem creepy upon first viewing, but take a listen to the lyrics…
If I was invisible, then I could just watch you in your room
If I was invincible, I’d make you mine tonight
If hearts were unbreakable, then I could just tell you where I stand
I would be the smartest man
If I was invisible
(Wait..I already am)
Stalker much? Yikes!
The chorus alone is enough to give any single girl the creeps!
6. No One Believes Me — Kid Cudi
This Kid Cudi track appears on the Fright Night soundtrack, so we knew we were in for something pretty creepy from the get-go.
In “No One Believes Me,” things get pretty gruesome in a town overrun by merciless vampires. No one’s safe, including little girls and sweet grandmas!
Full disclosure: even we had to shut our eyes during the surprise ending!
5. Get Ur Freak On –Missy Elliot
Listening to this song never fails to gets us on the dance floor, but the music video has us running for the covers!
Missy Elliot goes all Stretch Armstrong, but not in a fun way and those people painted in white will show up in your nightmares for sure!
4. Thriller — Michael Jackson
We can safely say that “Thriller” is the music video that started it all.
This wasn’t just a simple 3-minute lip sync, it was a mini-film masterpiece that countless artists have attemped to emulate ever since.
Plus don’t deny it, we’ve ALL tried to learn the dance alone in our bedrooms!
3. Bad Romance & Born This Way — Lady Gaga
With her over-the-top outfits, it seems like every day is Halloween for Lady Gaga
In fact, she has so many weird videos, we couldn’t choose just one!
Both “Bad Romance” and “Born This Way” would be a perfect addition to your party playlist, so take your pick: We’ve got the one where she burns her lover to death or the one where Monster Monster gives birth in outerspace!
2. Disturbia — Rihanna
It’s not often that pop starlets like Rihanna show off their dark side, but we’re so glad she did.
How she allowed a humongous tarantula to have free reign over her entire body, we’ll never know, but RiRi is a pro.
She manages to be sexy and totally scary at the same time…we didn’t even know that was possible!
1. Monster — Kanye West feat. Jay-Z, Nicki Minaj, Rick Ross & Bon Iver
WARNING: This music video includes graphic images and explicit language.
Creepy mansion? Check. Disembodied head? Check. Blood…and lots of it? Check, check and check.
When you look up nightmare in the dictionary, they’ll probably refer you to [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kanye West[/lastfm]‘s “Monster” music video.
In fact, Yeezy even had to include a disclaimer at the beginning of the video stating:
The following content is in no way to be interpreted as misogynistic or negative towards any groups of people. It is an art piece and it shall be taken as such.
Don’t believe all the hype? Watch the video yourself…if you dare!
