21- Skinny Puppy – Worlock
A video was created for this song that, in part, consisted of many graphic scenes from films, largely of the horror genre. The films used include: Four Flies on Grey Velvet, Deep Red, Suspiria, Dario Argento’s World of Horror, Tenebrae, Combat Shock, Demons, Phenomena, Opera, The Beyond, Hellraiser, Hellbound: Hellraiser II, Bad Taste, Dead & Buried, Luther The Geek, Maniac Cop, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Phantasm II, From Beyond, Re-Animator, Parents, Death Warmed Up, Hidden Crimes, Intruder, Dune, Eraserhead, and Altered States. The X-rated version opens with a transmission sound from Videodrome.
22- The Horrors – Sheena Is A Parasite
The music video was directed by Chris Cunningham, ending a seven-year music video hiatus for the much respected Cunningham, who admitted to being “mildly obsessed” with the track after coming across it on MySpace. Following several Aphex Twin videos in Cunningham’s filmography, the video was expected to be suitably twisted and quirky
23- Evanescence – Going Under
A music video for the song was directed by Philipp Stölzl and it was filmed in May 2003 in Berlin. It features the band performing the song live, while spectators from the audience turn into zombies and water in which lead singer Lee drowns, illustrating the song’s lyrics of sinking.
24- Aphex Twin – Rubber Johhny
The film, entirely presented in infrared vision, starts with an out-of-focus closeup of Johnny (played by Cunningham), babbling incomprehensibly while being interviewed by an unseen man. At one point Johnny mumbles the word “ma-ma” twice, after which the man asks if he wants his mother to come in. This causes Johnny to start breathing erratically and lose control, so the man gives Johnny a sedative injection to calm him down.
25- Lady Gaga – Bad Romance
The concept of the music video was a joint collaboration between Gaga and Lawrence. Because of Gaga’s schedule, it was shot in Los Angeles over a two-day period. Lawrence described Gaga’s work ethic and creativity during the video shoot: “She loves the art form of music videos and she is a real creative partner and has great ideas and really cool and unique tastes.” He praised her teamwork, punctuality and spontaneity, hoping to work with her on a new material in the future.
Gaga created a pair of razor-blade sunglasses which she believed portrayed tough female spirit to wear in the video, explaining, “It’s meant to be, ‘This is my shield, this is my weapon, this is my inner sense of fame, this is my monster.” Gaga also said that the video shows “how the entertainment industry can, in a metaphorical way, simulate human trafficking products being sold, the woman perceived as a commodity.”
26- MGMT – Kids
The video follows a toddler menaced by monsters that his inattentive mother (played by Joanna Newsom) cannot see. It begins with a quote ostensibly from Mark Twain, on a background of fire. The quote at the beginning of the video (“Beware that, when fighting monsters, you yourself do not become a monster… for when you gaze long into the abyss. The abyss gazes also into you..”) attributed to Mark Twain is actually a quote from Nietzsche’s Beyond Good and Evil.
27- Dio – Last in Line
The Last In Line is the second Platinum-selling studio album by the American heavy metal band Dio, released on July 2, 1984. It is the first Dio album to feature former Rough Cutt keyboardist Claude Schnell.
28- Ozzy Osbourne – Bark at the Moon
Lyrically, the song deals with a creature of some sort who once terrorized a town, was killed, and later mysteriously returned to once again wreak havoc upon the villagers. The music video, however, borrows heavily from Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde story, depicting Osbourne as a “mad scientist” who ingests a substance in his laboratory which causes him to transform into the werewolf depicted on the Bark at the Moon album cover
29- Robbie Williams – Rock DJ
The accompanying music video for “Rock DJ” was directed by Vaughan Arnell. It begins with Williams dancing on a roller disco with women skating around him. He wants to get the attention of the female DJ (played by Lauren Gold) standing above the stage, so he begins taking off his clothes. After he finally gets her attention he proceeds with stripping of his skin, muscles and organs, until the only thing left of him are his bones, which is performed by special effects. In the end, the DJ dances with his skeleton
30- Cradle of Filth – Cradle to Enslave
From the Cradle to Enslave is the second EP by English extreme metal band Cradle of Filth, released on 30 October 1999 by record labels Music for Nations (Europe) and Metal Blade (US).
