In honor of the spookiest time of the year, we rounded up 10 of the spookiest/eeriest music videos that we could find that weren't too scary. It's not because I was too scared. I'm not scared of anything except commitment. I was just afraid that a ghost demon would posses my computer and ruin it. Anyway here are our 10 videos.
1. "Kids" by MGMT
First on the list is the terrifying video for "Kids" by MGMT. I remember listening to the song way before ever watching the music video. I think the most disturbing thing is watching that poor kid cry any time he sees the monsters. BUT if you watch the making of the video you'll see how they managed to shoot the video without scarring that kid for life. He actually looks like he had a ton of fun.
2. "Thriller" by Micheal Jackson
Okay, I know this isn't THAT scary, but the first time I watched this I was 3 years old. I think the part that freaked me out the most is MJ growing all that ear hair out of nowhere. Honestly, this is a dope music video. You basically get to enjoy a short movie as well as learn a dance that you can use to impress everyone at a party if you're Jennifer Garner. I just made a 13 going on 30 reference. Oh man I just got myself real good. God bless Mark Ruffalo
3. "Yonkers" Tyler the Creator
Vomit, Weird black eyes, and cockroaches. He eats a cockroach. He.Eats.A.Cockroack. This was my very first impression of Tyler the Creator. I think what makes this music video so eerie are the lyrics and music. If you watch the video on silent its just Tyler being weird/dumb and throwing up and eating roaches. If you watch this video, you legally have to eat a roach or you can spend 2-99 years in prison.
4. "Ready, Able" by Grizzly Bear
This video is hauntingly beautiful. I'm sure there is probably a ton of symbolism that I'm too dumb to understand. The scary thing about this video is that if you watch it 3 times in a row you turn into a claymation monster version or yourself.
5. "Bonfire" by Childish Gambino
Again with the vomit. The video starts with him throwing up blood and a noose around his neck, and then we realize that he's a rapping ghost. The only thing scarier than a rapping ghost is a rapping hologram.
6. "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett
Listen, there are more monsters in this song than any other song ever written. Want proof? here is a list of some he monsters present.
4. The Wolf Man
6. Dracula's Son.Dracula's SON? He doesn't even get a name? He has to live in his father's shadow. Do Vampires even have shadows, or is that just reflections? He's not even a professional monster yet! he is like an apprentice or something. What kind of party allows children to get down? Why is he the only kid there? How old is he?
That's too many monsters to have in one place. Did they even get a permit to have all those monsters in one place? That man used all the known monsters in 1962. There is no doubt that Bobby Pickett was a sick, sick man.
7. "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett
May God have mercy on our souls.
8. "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett
Run. Its too late for me.
9. "Monster Mash" by Bobby Pickett
I read this tweet and not only are there too many monsters, but this song is meta af. Bobby Pickett is the only true monster here.
10. YOU GUESSED IT "I Believe I Can Fly" by R. Kelly
Because it's R. Kelly and he's scary.
