Top 10 Strangest Music Videos


The Top Ten

1 Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden Black Hole Sun - Soundgarden

No way people hate this song and loves gangnam style!
if you hate soundgarden then go to hell

My top 4 are this, followed by E.T. (Katy Perry), Radioactive (Imagine Dragons) and Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics)

I thought about drugs when I saw the video. - Userguy44

With everybody smiling while weird crap is going on around them everywhere, I would have to say that this is the weirdest music video that I have ever seen. I this the part where the old guy with the top hat is really weird too, that and the girl with the roasting barbie doll.

2 Rock DJ - Robbie Williams Rock DJ - Robbie Williams

It scared me as a kid and it scares me now

This video has got to be seen to be believed

This video got banned

How is this not higher?! It was banned in several places

3 Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin Come to Daddy - Aphex Twin

Never watched the video and I'm never going to - TopTenListmaker

I've seen a little bit of it and it is amazing, the director Chris Cunnungham did a amazing job. There is still 5 words to describe it,
Amazing 100 greatest music videos in my opinion number 6#

4 Hangover - PSY

Lets start by saying this creeps the hell out of me

Good job anthonybecerrra831, this needs to be first, I wonder whats the last time snoop dogg washed or ever did

Its very weird and inipropreit...make a clean version...

5 The Beautiful People - Marilyn Manson

this is an awesome video both in general ans by Marilyn manson. and yes definitely one of the weirdest.

Hey look! It's SAW: The Musical! (Only difference: It doesn't have any blood, gore, or torture in it)

Wow... a Manson mini movie XD! - fireinside96

I love this it's so cool

6 Kids - MGMT

Love the song and the video never fails to make me laugh! It is very weird, but I would expect that from and indie band. They tend to be weirder and definitely unique.

This music video is super creepy. The poor kid.

7 Total Eclipse of the Heart - Bonnie Tyler
8 Rude Boy - Rihanna

The bright colors, animal prints and provocative outfits-what's not up with it, actually? It's all about being troubled, intrusive and seducing rude boys-the cards Rihanna is playing with on and on.

I swear I had a seizure to this video. I mean, what's up with all the bright colors, animal prints and provoactive outfits?

9 Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) - Marilyn Manson

This video is creepy in a good way.

I regret searching this up... - Lem

10 Tripping - Robbie Williams

Reminds me of The Shining

The Newcomers

? Baby Shark - Pinkfong
? Dame Tu Cosita - El Chombo

The Contenders

11 Sledgehammer - Peter Gabriel

Let's see...we have a sledgehammer laying an egg which hatches into a roasted chicken dancing on a stage, a walking puppet made of sledgehammers, we have Peter Gabriel's face made of fruit which he then eats...oh, and of course, Peter Gabriel with sledgehammer hands that smack his face and grows a tiny Peter Gabriel out of his own face.

It makes more sense when you realize that the whole thing is a great big visual metaphor to go along with the song's lyrics. - Gg2000

12 I Want to Break Free - Queen

Queen is awesome! But this music video is cringe

It isn't weird, it's funny, and it was very innovative and brave in those years.

The song is great
But I cannot explain how weird the music video is - Ajkloth

Love the song and the video. Roger looked like a girl. Loved it! - MontyPython

13 Frontier Psychiatrist - The Avalanches

I love this video

This is SO CRAZY, but in a good way.

14 Land of Confusion - Genesis Land of Confusion - Genesis

The entire music video consists of a puppet couple going to bed and then the husband has a dream of weird things happening. he wakes up and finds that his house is underwater, travels through a land of heads, dresses up like superman for one moment, and then it shows a bunch of puppet versions of celebrities and fictional characters singing the whole song.

Those puppets are creepy! I like disturbed's version of the song and music video a lot better.

Not to mention in the beginning they have a chimpanzee in their bed.

Dude! This is an AWESOME video. Its eant to be weird! Its talking bout confusion in the world so its gotta be weird!

15 Hello Kitty - Avril Lavigne

Not creepy just too cute

Doesn't have anything to do with hello kitty

What the hell did I watch?

16 Radioactive - Imagine Dragons

I'm confused...fighting puppets?!

It's...eccentric, to say the least. (SPOILERS BELOW)

It's puppets fighting by the force of this guy then this girl comes in with her stuffed bear who "goes Super Saiyan" and defeats the guy, his purple gorilla puppet, burns the guards with laser vision, and saves Imagine Dragons, who are seen locked up in the video. I've heard some stories that it is (symbolically) about Christianity, which wouldn't surprise me, given it's Imagine Dragons' song and video. - WonkeyDude98

So lemme get this straight - some muppets are beating each other up

The perfect example of ruining a perfect song with a video.

17 Bump & Grind 2014 - Waze & Odyssey & R. Kelly
18 Breaking the Girl - Red Hot Chili Peppers
19 Dooo It! - Miley Cyrus
20 Hooked On a Feeling - David Hasselhoff

The Hoff is being Hassled. Stop now.

21 Massive Attack - Nicki Minaj
22 Gangnam Style - PSY

I don't even know what the song or the music video is even about.

It's funny but weird

23 Little Talks - Of Monsters and Men

I like the song but the video is drugged

24 Separate Ways (World's Apart) - Journey
25 Fish Heads - Barnes and Barnes
26 Alejandro - Lady Gaga

I mean you don't even know what the song is about and the video is just so long and strange and very creepy and devilish at the end - katecameron

27 Justified & Ancient - The KLF
28 We Can't Stop - Miley Cyrus

Not only is it a song about partying and doing drugs, but it also has Miley and other people with these giant teddy bear backpacks, a scene where Miley's cutting her fingers off only to reveal fake fingers and pink liquid, a creepy looking white eyeless face on the computer, a guy with a fogger sticking out of his crotch, another guy eating a sandwich filled with dollars, and a guy making a skull out of French fries and then crushing it. what's the point of all this?

I think it's a weird video bucz how they act and the way they are

For a song about partying and doing drugs this is just.. stupid.

29 What Is Love - Haddaway
30 BB Talk - Miley Cyrus
31 Give It Away - Red Hot Chili Peppers
32 Best Song Ever - One Direction

The song and the music video are SO lame.

Not weird at all...who thinks its weird...

33 The Wild Boys - Duran Duran
34 Everlong - Foo Fighters

Just watch itm - Userguy44

35 Obscure - Dir en grey

The music video for this is so damn messed up, like the band is just randomly vomiting and then there's like some weird dildo thinggy and it has someone eating a damn fetus, SERIOUSLY!

36 Wrecking Ball - Miley Cyrus

I have no objection to the nudity in this music video. No objection at all to that. I see the nudity as being symbolic of her emotions. She's wearing her heart for all to see, she's stripped down emotionally. That's reflected through being literally naked. As long as it's age restricted, I appreciate the artistic reason for the nudity. What I don't understand is why she had to turn something beautiful into yet another demonstration of outrageously provocative, and downright vile behavior. Who wants to see you lick a sledgehammer? I mean, I've licked some pretty disgusting things on a dare before but...just why? That's disgusting! Nobody wants to see it and it ruined what could have been a beautiful video. - theOpinionatedOne

It's just Miley Cyrus swinging on a wrecking ball naked in a white room while breaking walls with a sledgehammer and then licking the sledgehammer. that last part totally ruined the song and the music video.

The nudity isn't really a problem, but then there's what she is doing on the other hand... - Swellow

I about threw up

37 Paranoimia - The Art of Noise
38 You Spin Me Round (Like A Record) - Dead Or Alive
39 By the Way - Red Hot Chili Peppers

Too funny - pLix33

This video is hilarious! - Userguy44

40 The Bad Touch - The Bloodhound Gang

Not only does this song have very bizarre lyrics (we'll Do it like they do on the Discovery Channel), but also the fact they have the band members in weird costumes and they trapped many random people (homosexuals eating soup) in a cage. This was also known as one of the most Controversial music videos.

Guys in monkey suits running around Paris being VERY Strange.

41 The Perfect Life - Moby

Moby and Wayne Coyne dressed as lost mariachis walking through downtown L.A. picking up a king with a magic wand after being thrown from a bar, and a guy with no face yhrowing a ribbon about in their faces, following ghosts on rollerblades. It's random. That's all I can say for this music video. But a great song, nonetheless.

42 Sweater Weather - The Neighborhood
43 Big Me - Foo Fighters
44 Happy - Pharrell Williams

Not at all weird at all dah

45 Sexy and I Know It - LMFAO

So funny and cool..

46 Telephone - Lady Gaga Telephone - Lady Gaga
47 I Believe In A Thing Called Love - The Darkness
48 In Bloom - Nirvana
49 Ballad of Bilbo Baggins - Leonard Nimoy
50 Plug In Baby - Muse
