10. Wall To Wall — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Chris Brown[/lastfm]

Twilight, who?

Believe it or not, but it was actually Breezy who first brought vampires back into the mainstream in 2007.

9. Everybody — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Backstreet Boys[/lastfm]

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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dr. Dre[/lastfm] feat. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Skylar Grey[/lastfm]

The haunting melody is already weird enough, but the music video takes it a step further.

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Dr. Dre[/lastfm]’s life literally flashes before his eyes after he gets into a massive car wreck and it’s up to [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Eminem[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Skylar Grey[/lastfm] to bring him back to life in this weird medieval hospital chamber.

7. Invisible — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Clay Aiken[/lastfm]

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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm]

[mtv]http://www.mtv.com/videos/kid-cudi/681281/no-one-believes-me.jhtml[/mtv]

This [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kid Cudi[/lastfm] 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!

Listening to this song never fails to gets us on the dance floor, but the music video has us running for the covers!

[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Missy Elliot[/lastfm] 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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Michael Jackson[/lastfm]

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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm]

With her over-the-top outfits, it seems like every day is Halloween for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm].

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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm]

It’s not often that pop starlets like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rihanna[/lastfm] 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 — [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Kanye West[/lastfm] feat. [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Jay-Z[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Rick Ross[/lastfm] & [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bon Iver[/lastfm]

Vodpod videos no longer available.

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!
