->''"I also happen to be one who never really understood the universal appeal of ''Thriller''. Sure, it was a great album, and it's a great video, but it's so disturbing! Look at him! He's scarier than anything I've ever seen in a horror movie! And what's even more frightening it's that the world embraces this so much!"''

* Music/BoardsOfCanada: The video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQEmaj9C6ko "Everything You Know Is A Balloon"]] has children in incredibly creepy ape masks dying horribly. The footage is taken from the bicycle safety movie, Film/OneGotFat, which is incredibly creepy on it's own, but combined with the calming yet ambient music it only gets creepier.

* LFO: "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3og0oFiDO3U Freak]]". A music video featuring Asian schoolgirls dancing to the song before two of them get in a fight over a teddy bear and one is pushed to the ground, triggering a seizure. The video ends with this girl sitting up directly in front of the camera, revealing a CG face that looks incredibly ''[[NightmareFace o]][[UncannyValley ff]]'', and [[SlasherSmile smiling]]. Brrr. The video's predominantly [[UnnaturallyBlueLighting blue hue]] bears eerie resemblance to Chris Cunningham's work, and the schoolgirls share the same [[EeriePaleSkinnedBrunette offsetting]] [[StringyHairedGhostGirl look]].

** While tame compared to most of the examples here, some viewers may be unsettled by the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l3Pnr3S10yA "Nuclear Bomb" video]], in which Clem has [[FanDisservice full-on sex with a guitar]]. BrainBleach may be required.

* Benny Benassi: Although the other version of [[BlackSheepHit "Satisfaction"]] is more well known for its weird, [[BestKnownForTheFanservice over-the-top sexualization]], [[https://youtu.be/b8qBUza1pO0 THIS]] version is just...[[ParanoiaFuel uggh.]] Don't stare directly at them for too long.
** Oh, and they eventually [[SlasherSmile start to grin.]]

** And then there's the video for [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F5sIXUbMgF0 "Prison Sex"]]. There's a reason it still provides the page pic up there. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LhObXjghLg Though thankfully]] this one also has some NightmareRetardant thanks to a video with WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButtHead commentary.

* HEALTH: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1qvEr9bC6c "Stonefist"]]. An otherwise normal PerformanceVideo, but with a catch: the video randomly cuts to (extremely graphic) close-up shots of a plastic surgery. It turns out at the end that the entire band was going under this surgery, and the result falls squarely into the UncannyValley.

** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bbTtPL1jRs "Famous Last Words"]]. Already pretty depressing, but video gets exponentially creepier when you learn that the pyro burned their drummer's leg resulting in staph infection, gangrene, and near death. Not to mention an in-video tackle between band members that tore ligaments in Gerard Way's foot and left him walking with a cane for a few weeks. Be more dedicated to your crazy, guys.

Already pretty depressing, eerie with the shadowy lighting and creepy facepaint and general unsettling theatricality, but the video gets exponentially creepier when you learn that the pyro pyrotechnics burned their drummer's leg resulting in staph infection, gangrene, and near death.

** "Thriller". The most famous music video of all time, directed by John Landis, has haunted generations of children. Michael's [[TransformationTrauma transformation]] into a WereCat (some people say it was a werewolf, while the making of movie says a cat creature) at the beginning was pretty terrifying, especially because nothing at the start of the video suggests that something that gruesome will occur.

* Music/Tori Amos: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_C23JCduok "A Sorta Fairytale"]] features a shoe at the beginning that then hops away. You then realize it's Amos's head attached to a disembodied leg, who falls in love with Adrien Brody's head attached to a disembodied arm!

** Music/The Cars: [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dOx510kyOs "You Might Think"]] shows Ric Ocasek stalking Susan Gallagher in pretty unorthodox ways. And are those shades attached to his face permanently, cos when he tried to take 'em off...

* Faith No More's [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZG_k5CSYKhg "Epic"]]...the dreary end piano solo combined with footage of a dying fish is pure nightmare fuel!
