Werewolf and Vampires: In Music Video

So, just because I find int entertaining, I thought I’d share two music videos with you, which just so happen to include some of pop cultures favorite monsters.

1). The Kills’ “Black Balloon”  Ends with some quality vamprism, with all sorts of bloody delight.  To be perfectly honest I could pretty much be convinced that Alison Mosshart is a vampire in real life.  I’m completely okay with that too.

2). The Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ “Heads Will Roll” with an awesome dancing werewolf.  Also, you just don’t see enough music videos where the band is left chopped up at the end.  Just sayin’ (unfortunately ya gotta watch this one at youtube).

So yeah any other good monsters in other music videos?  Everybody knows “Thriller” but what else is there?

  1. Well, there’s “Break Away” by ZZ Top, which features a vampire played by the incredibly awesome Fairuza Balk.

    There’s Dr. Frankenstein and some other monsters in “Doin’ It All For My Baby” by Hewey Lewis and the News.

    There’s all the ghosts in Michael Jackson’s “Ghosts,” which is a totally mind-blowing video.

    And the Backstreet Boys’ “Everybody Rock Your Body,” in which the band members become a werewolf, the Phantom, something I’m guessing was Dr. Jeckyl, a mummy, and Dracula (in the costume of the Gary Oldman version, which makes him look more like Willy Wonka). The song sucks, but the video is pretty decent.

    “Scream” by the Misfits has ghouls.

    “I Would Do Anything For Love” by Meatloaf. I’m not sure what exactly he’s supposed to be in the video, though. Some kind of monster.

    And then of course, there’s GWAR.

    Also, they’re not well-known, but check out a band called Creature Feature. Supposedly, the band members consist of a vampire and a werewolf, and all their songs are about classic horror movies.
