Halloween Fun: The Alternative Scariest Music Videos

UG pranksters were at it again, and this time voted for some utterly barmy music videos in our recent poll. Click here if you want to confuse yourself into a spin.

Ultimate Guitar

On Monday we asked you to nominate and vote for the scariest music videos.

As usual, pranksters dived in with some hilarious suggestions which didn't quite fit the official list. But how could we let all that great curation go to waste?

As an alternative (or as an antidote to the gory official list), here's your fun top 10. Happy Halloween!

10. Rebecca Black - Friday

Rebecca Black is less a pop star than a template for the dystopian future where everyone is famous for 15 minutes - but at a price.

09. Karuisa kohvijahvatamise laul

I watched this four times to make sense of it. All I could do was cry.

8. Rick Astley "Never Gonna Give You Up"

Hey, if you click play, it secretly streams the next Metallica record! Seriously!

07. Nicki Minaj "Va Va Voom"

The one redeeming feature about this video is that Minaj is metaphorically killed by the huntsman. And yet, she continues to perform. Does anyone know how to turn her off?

06. "Epileptic Mouse and Hoaxer Cat"

There's really no other way to describe this, so I won't.

05. The Black Satans "The Mutilation Of Christ"

These pranksters love to parody black metal, and their tongue-in-cheek video is hilarious. We wouldn't be surprised if this group were the ones in UG comments who vote these alternative charts into existence.

04. How to fail at Guitar - Lil Wayne

There are so many Lil' Wayne guitar parodies that we can't find the real one. We assume this one is a prank 'SHRED!' video like the ones we posted last week, but maybe this is the real one after all and we've just lost all perspective on what good music sounds like.

03. Charlie Schmidt's Keyboard Cat!

One of the most famous YouTube videos of all time, because cats aren't supposed to play keyboard. It's not in their genes. And yet, here a cat defies nature, in both playing the keyboard and filming itself. Can someone please explain how?

02. David Bowie & Mick Jagger "Dancing In The Street"

David, Mick. Please take a seat. You both deserve to be rock legends, and history can never take your great achievements away from you. But guys, what the f--k were you thinking when you both recorded this song and shot this video? What in the f--k, man? Okay, you've heard enough. Let's never talk about this again.

01. One Direction "What Makes You Beautiful"

At first glance, this seems like an inappropriate winner for a scary video poll. But consider how these cretins are some of the most influential people in the US, and the effect that might have, it's terrifying. Dear God, let it end.

    I don't care what anyone says, the "Epileptic Mouse and Hoaxer Cat" is genuinely scary.
    I know it's for fun, but this turned out to be more of a "What videos do you hate?" thing.
    Wham! - "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go" ... one of the most terrifying videos ever. Good list though.
    This list was not what I thought it would be after reading the title.
    Damn article writer got me on the Rick Roll...what the hell was I thinking?
    It wasn't all too bad. I honestly don't mind that song....old guilty pleasure. But the video is horrendous.
    Bad Brain
    Wow thank you voters! This is an honor for newbie UGer like me (Long time lurker though)
    Wow. A comment saying: "Wat." got the medal. I don't quite know what to say, really.
    Bad Brain
    Just happy that the video I nominated was put here, haha
    Thumbs up if you actually went back to the previous article to find Bad Brain's comment to see which video he suggested! ... I guess no one cares.
    Bad Brain
