With Halloween coming up on Wednesday, we decided to move our usual weekly question to Monday to prepare a horrifying poll for the big day.

What is the scariest music video ever?

They don't have to be frightening videos, but it'll help if they fit the spooky Halloween theme.

Maybe you'll opt for something theatrical by Rob Zombie or Marylin Manson, or something so old and bad that's it's good. Like an old Ozzy Osbourne video. There's some wonderfully dark conceptual videos by the likes of Tool or The Knife worth considering. Or, if you want to step outside the rock realm, there's some crazy videos by electronic artists like Aphex Twin which could give anyone the creeps.

Place your nominations in the comments, and remember to upvote the posts you agree with. Feel free to add a YouTube link so your fellow readers can see the clip before voting.

We'll stack up the results and post them in a special Halloween list on Wednesday, alongside a tonne of other festive features. Thanks!

    Sober should be top. Actually makes me pee myself a little every time I hear the song.

    its actually fanmade the only song they made a video for was quote unquote but this video is so well done and creepy its hard to tell still awesome choice
    Moonie2655
    Quote Unquote is pretty terrifying though. If this doesn't qualify, I think Quote Unquote should definitely be on the list.

    I voted both of the people that replied to mastodude down because of obvious first comment riding.

    It's gotta be this:
    Terrifying. But honestly, I gotta go with Thriller. Cool song, cool video, and that Vincent Price Rap!? Amazing.

    For sure. I wouldn't want to watch that video while trippin. Another video I was always creeped out by was Until It Sleeps by Metallica.

    this takes the cake

    Dude obscure hands down. It took me three full tries to be able to watch this in the dark. And I'm super comfortable with gore

    First time I watched this video I couldn't even finish it. This has to win, not for the music, but the video by itself.
    N-D
    Maybe this one?) ("Epileptic Mouse and Hoaxer Cat")

    Not necessarily scary, but just gives you that feeling that you kind of want to vomit.

    This video isn't in your face scary. But it leaves a lasting impression when you walk away and go to grab a snack from the kitchen.

    The Heart-Shaped Box music video creeps the **** outta me.

    It doesn't get much scarier than this. True Norwegian black metal from Finland!
    bluco
    how can it be true norwegian black metal if they're from finland? haha =)
    Bad Brain
    That's what they say

    The band called The Black Satans was born in the summer of 2005 when Klitors, Heijargh and Naamosh were on a cruise ship. The guys got a glorious drunken idea to form a true Norwegian black metal band. Years went by, and the band hardly progressed at all. Later Masturbrg joined the band because of pity and he became the singing and dancing vocalist of The Black Satans. Still very little was done to advance the band. Then, in the late 2008 the Black Satans sold their souls to Timo Tolkki in order to get this piece of shit done. This is true Norwegian black metal from Finland. The Black Satans.

    "Mr. Krinle" by Primus always creeped me out as a kid. A guy in a pig mask playing stand up bass??

    good lord, I've (unfortunately) seen this video. it's creepy, scary, disgusting, I don't know, if this doesn't get first place, I honestly don't want to watch the video that reaches the top of the list.

    Definitely come to daddy by aphex twins. It came to mind before I even saw the picture on the article. I used to torment the shit out of my siblings with it.
