Top Ten Musical Monster Videos of All Time
Spooky time is upon us once again! Most use Halloween as an excuse to dress like assholes, getting belligerently drunk and howling obscenities into the night. We are no exception. Everyone needs to blow off a little steam. Who are we to judge your slutty bumblebee costume? Or that slutty Pocahontas getup? Whatever helps you get your rocks off is more than fine by us, you slutty apple, you.
To set the mood for said spooky time, we present this list of musical monsters, because... Well, this is a music blog. Scrounged up from the broken battlements of our castle in BroCo, this countdown is not for the faint of heart. Be forewarned: Dancing inmates, a singing turd, and Porky Pig lay waiting to collect your soul after this jump. If you are pregnant, or have a preexisting heart condition, tread carefully.
10. Animal vs. Buddy Rich
9. "Puttin' on the Ritz"
8. "Jeepers Creepers"
7. Indian "Thriller"
6. Curry's Spooky Song
5. Slaughter House Rock
The '80s were wonderful in an awful sort of way. Everythingisterrible.com presents us with the best clips and quotes from Slaughter House Rock, a movie that never needed to be made.
4. Zombie Workout
Here is something you don't see every day: A blonde outsmarting anything. We kid. This valley girl does some quick thinking to save her own life while keeping the walking-dead fit and firm.
3. The Great Mighty Poo
Of course you remember Conker's Bad Fur Day. It's the Nintendo 64 game that had cartoon animals cursing, drinking and doing drugs. This is the first boss fight of the game.
2. Mighty Boosh's "Eels"
Just about every episode of Mighty Boosh had a song with some monster singing and dancing. It was hard to choose between Old Greg's "Love Games," Bollo's song about getting high, or Parsley's "Call of the Yeti." We decided to go with "Eels."
1. Prison Thriller
Here are some Pilipino inmates doing an amazing rendition of the dance from the American version of Indian "Thriller" (see #7). We're still not sure if dancing zombies are scarier than dancing felons.
We know someone would've had a shit fit if this wasn't on the list.
Beetlejuice's "Shake Senora"
Wynona's just the cutest little klepto ever.
Bollo's song about getting high
